by Gabriel Gibaldi, Public Relations Director
Over the weekend, Disneyland park guests were in for an awesome surprise when Tim Burton stopped by the Main Street Opera House during a sneak peek of Disney’s all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo,” in theaters March 29.
Tim’s visit included a surprise welcome at the sneak peek with a poster giveaway to lucky guests and a special visit to Dumbo the Flying Elephant in Fantasyland!
The sneak peek is also available aboard the ships of Disney Cruise Line and in the Walt Disney Presents attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Here’s a look at the latest trailer for Disney’s “Dumbo,” which flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.
Tickets for the film are now available for advance purchase wherever movie tickets are sold.
