The new trailer for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s Dumbo is not pulling any emotional punches.
One of the most heartbreaking moments in the animated 1941 original was when Dumbo’s mother reaches out to him with her trunk through the bars of her cage.
The latest trailer for Tim Burton’s adaptation plays up the elephant family’s separation.
The trailer includes scenes of Dumbo’s mother being taken away from the young elephant, as well as a re-creation of that memorable Baby Mine scene from the animated original.
Written by Ehren Kruger, Dumbo stars Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Eva Green, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton.
The film is slated to hit theatres March 29 in the US.
