The Dumbo trailer is here, and while it looks amazing, I have no intentions of ever seeing it. Sorry, just not in the mood to cry in the theater.
While I’m certain Tim Burton has crafted a great film, and I love pretty much every person in this cast, Dumbo is one of those stories that I just know will make me cry. Sobbing in a theater is just not a fun night out to me. Maybe some day I’ll see it on home video, when I’m all alone and no one can witness my uncontrolled sobbing.
It gets me, I won’t lie.
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Dumbo hits theaters on March 29, 2019.
