Tim Burton's live-action Dumbo looks emotional, slightly unsettling in latest trailer

Disney doesn't seem to know how to stop these live-action remakes of their classic animated films, and Dumbo, from Tim Burton, is one of their latest efforts. After an initial teaser showed what the basic premise of the film will be, a full trailer expanded on what we may see from the film's plot and characters. It also reminded us that Danny DeVito is in this thing.

My memory on the original Dumbo film isn't too fresh; I even got into a debate with a friend as we tried to remember whether or not Dumbo talked in that movie. Regardless, I don't remember this many characters in that one. Burton's film has Colin Farrell as Holt Farrier, a one-armed war veteran who works for circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) and takes care of the magnificent baby elephant. Dumbo's circus antics is enough to attract the attention of entrepreneur V. A. Vandemere (Michael Keaton), who enlists Dumbo for his "Dreamland" venture. You can tell he's evil because he wears a suit.
