Ladies and gentlemen! Friends, young and old! We’re just weeks away from the release of Disney’s new live-action remake of the beloved animated classic Dumbo. On Thursday, Disney released a brand new sneak peek look at the upcoming film, and it sure does look magical.
In the latest trailer, fans of the original film will see several familiar sights coming to life right before their very eyes. For example, Dumbo is ready to take flight thanks to his trusty “magic feather” which fans will remember from the original film. Also, if you look closely, you can catch a glimpse of what looks like pink elephant-shaped bubbles from the iconic “Pink Elephants on Parade” scene from the original. The live-action film really looks to be a remake done right.
Check out the latest sneak peek preview of Dumbo below.
