Tim Burton to Direct Disney's Live-Action "Dumbo" Remake

Posted: March 11th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tim Burton to Direct DisneySubmit Comment
Disney has been turning lots of its animated classics into live-action movies, including "Cinderella," "The Jungle Book," "Alice in Wonderland" and "Beauty and the Beast." And now, the studio has announced another live-action adaptation.

Disney just hired Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Batman) to direct a live-action remake of "Dumbo," which will be a mixture of CG effects and live actors. Disney's president of production Sean Bailey hinted that the story would focus on "a big world," which may mean that the remake will expand upon the original tale.

It's not surprising that Disney hired Burton, whose "Alice in Wonderland" grossed over $1 billion worldwide and is one of Disney's most successful live-action movies. It also served as a spark for the new live-action fairy tale strategy.

It's like Burton was looking around for things to f*ck up, and said, hey, what about that movie about that elephant from decades back? How can I ruin that with Danny Elfman music?

"The big world" is referring to crossover events. Captain Jack Sparrow will give Dumbo a lift on the Black Pearl until Thor strikes it with lightning. As it sinks Dumbo will be saved by the Little Mermaid as a preview to her new live action film. Johnny Depp will also play one of those racist negro crows. Tim Burton's ugly wife will play the Little Mermaid.

What else can we rehash and whore out for a buck? Besides Johnny Depp I mean.
