I'm wondering on this too. And unlike 101 Dalmatians there aren't really human characters to turn the focus on.

Hmmmm....

On one hand, Dumbo is one of those movies with a blank slate that doesn't have that much "wrecking" potential since the original movie is very basic and short by Disney animated standards. So it COULD work. Plus, it was one of those movies that had a DTV sequel in the works but was nixed by Lasseter, so this could bring back Dumbo into the public eye or those new gen kids who've never seen the early Disney stuff.

On the other hand, this is still Disney and their recent live action stuff. After Maleficent, they're not exactly trustworthy when it comes to that.

This just feels like a giant dare. Are we really going to have a live-action mouse dubbed over to be Timothy?

Was anyone on Earth asking for this besides Disney executives?

I'll bet they introduce a human character and shift the film's focus on him and try to go the Free Willy/Dolphin Tale crowd about a boy and his elephant.

Well, there's the Broadway musical. It doesn't get more live action than that.

Ok, I'm just going to say this: Hell in the seven hells of krypton do you make DUMBO of all things a live action movie? Most of the main characters in the movie are animals, which means the entire movie would have to be CGI- NOT LIVE ACTION.

Also, Burton is insane. He should just stop making movies. Yes, we all like some of his movies. It's just all of his movie makes you question if it was made while he was on LSD or something. Burton needs to be stopped.

Really, just WTF is the house of mouse thinking here?
You go the "Transformers" route: have the movie focus on the heroic white people, not the characters the movie is named after.

Johnny Depp as Jaf--Nope, it says Iago here. And Helena Bonham Carter as... Aladdin?

Yep, that sounds about possible.

Not sure with the latter, as heard they broke up recently.

......I nearly put my forehead through my desk reading the thread title.

Live-action Dumbo? Sounds reasonable.

Live-action Dumbo directed by Tim Burton? Let's see, how many generations of children will be traumatized into fearing elephants, mice, circuses, crows, and generally anything in this movie thanks to Burton's "unique" style?

I don't get why Hollywood has to take a classic like Dumbo and "goth it up" with Burton or whoever else...

Dumbo will probably be an "elephant man" type freak with big ears. The trailer won't show the ears to build up the suspense.
