Tim Burton to Remake Dumbo
With Disney’s Cinderella getting a live-action remake and fairly positive reviews, the company is looking to do the same with other classic intellectual properties. It really shouldn’t surprise most of us that Disney is planning on doing the same with its classic tale of elephant abuse and body shaming, Dumbo.
Disney has a ton of faith in Tim Burton (one simply needs to look at his collaborations with the company) as they’ve shared quite the history together culminating in 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. The movie currently has him attached as the director for the remake with a script being written by Ehren Kruger from the Transformer franchise.
The movie is set to be a mixture of live-action and CGI as was the style for Maleficent and while I’ll reserve judgment until it’s released, personally I take umbrage with anything Tim Burton these days.
