DUMBO is getting the live-action remake treatment

1 min read


Ooooh, Dumbo the elephant went to live-action town and said goodbye to the animated circus! Off he went with a trumpety trump, trump trump!

If ever there was a movie that would make you feel sorry for a big-eared pachyderm, it could probably be found on Kervyn’s daily YouTube selfie blog. Or you could watch the 1941 movie Dumbo . It’s a classic tale, and one of the breakthrough Disney animated films once you ignore the racist caricatures of those there Jim Crows.

According to THR, Disney has tapped Justin “Tron:Legacy” Springer to draft up a script, which will pad out the original tale which happens to be one of the shorter Disney cartoon movies. According to the trade, the story will be filled out by “adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story.” Which most likely translates to a young kid whose father never ever attends his soccer practice.

Dumbo himself will presumably be a CG creation, that will require extra security to keep a rage-fueled Tony Jaa from crashing the set and demanding to know where his elephant is. Again, I’m speculating. Still, there could be some potential coinage in this for Disney. Live action remakes such as Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent have made plenty of profit so far, with other projects such as Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book and Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast also on the live action way.

But Dumbo? That could work. It’s a film that is technically balls-old by now, and most kids have yet to see it. Plenty of opportunity then.

      No!… They should get Neil Blomkamp to direct it. Then Sharlto Copley can star as Timothy Q. Mouse

        Or JJ. He will just use the original source material and add excessive lens flare so it looks like live action. 😛
