First off.. I really hope they do not use real Elephants. Secondly - seriously Disney, is this your plan now? Remake every classic animation you have into a live action? What have we had so far... Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians and with Cinderella coming up this month and Junglebook and Beauty and the Beast announced it seems like this is Disneys plan from now on.
Tim Burton is to direct a Disney live action remake of Dumbo. It will be the latest re-working of its classic animations, following Cinderella, Maleficent (adapted from Sleeping Beauty) and Alice in Wonderland. Several other films are in development, including a modernised take on The Jungle Book due for release next year, Beauty and the Beast, expected in 2017, and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
