Disney Hires "Transformers" Writer for Live-Action "Dumbo" Movie

Disney Hires "Transformers" Writer for Live-Action "Dumbo" MovieSubmit Comment
Disney just hired Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Ring, Arlington Road) to write the script for its upcoming live-action version of the 1941 animated classic "Dumbo."

"Dumbo" tells the story of a baby circus elephant who is teased for his large ears. When his mother steps in to protect him and is locked up for it, he ends up on the road with a mouse as his companion. The mouse instills into Dumbo the idea that with the help of a magic feather, he can fly.

The new take involves the adaptation of the original movie while adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story. The studio believes that because of the current state of CG technology, a live-action movie featuring a flying elephant can be successful.

Disney has turned several classic animated films into live-action movies, including "Maleficent" and "Alice in Wonderland." It's also working on a live-action remakes of "Cinderella," "The Jungle Book" and "Beauty and the Beast."

Kind of makes sense, considering the dumbness of Transformers 4...

He'll have an 'All-spark' instead of a feather

The mouse will be a jive-talkin sewer rat

The crows will be extra rascist sippin on Sizzurp

Dumbo will be black and will only talk in Sanford & Son lingo
because thats all he watched when he was in a cage growing up
