Disney to Remake Live-Action “Dumbo”

The latest trend of live-action Disney remakes won’t be stopping anytime soon, the 1941 classic “Dumbo” is next on the list.

The famous big-eared elephant will be brought back to the screen by “Transformers” writer Ehren Kruger. “Tron: Legacy”‘s Justin Springer will be producing.

The new take on the story will adapt the original movie as well as add “a unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story.”  The studio will also make use of the latest CGI technology for the animal characters.

We’ll see more live-action Disney features with the upcoming “Cinderella”, “The Jungle Book” and “Beauty and the Beast”.

What do you think about a live-action “Dumbo”? Are you exhausted or excited for these Disney remakes? Let us know in the comments!

    Well if these movies are going to be like anything like Maleficent then I give up on Disney. This just shows that they are lost what made them great.
