Tim Burton's live-action Dumbo cast, release date revealed

Tim Burton's live-action Dumbo cast, release date revealed

The studio's had a surprisingly strong success rate so far on its live-action remakes (from Cinderella to The Jungle Book), but with such a production-line approach to churning back up every animated classic in its catalogue, exhaustion is bound to kick in sooner or later. Instead, Disney officially confirmed him for a role in the live-action Aladdin remake with Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Mena Massoud as the titular street rat. Speaking in a pre-recorded video, he told the D23 audience, "Dumbo was always one of my favorite Disney films".

The D23 panel also confirmed all the reported castings for the film: Colin Farrell will play Holt Farrier, a former circus star and war-veteran who cares for the newborn elephant with giant ears, with Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins cast as his children, who discover Dumbo can fly. But it is the Casey Jr. train and the concept art that tells us a lot about the world that Burton is creating.
