Director Tim Burton is giving us his take on the flying elephant, who originally debuted in a 1941 animated film.

The new version finds a circus owner (Danny DeVito) enlisting a former star (Colin Farrell) and his children to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock – until everyone finds out he can fly. Michael Keaton also stars.

Dumbo is due in theaters on March 29, 2019.
