Tim Burton's version of Dumbo has been revealed (and it's terrifying)

The film stars Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell, Golden Globe winner Michael Keaton, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Danny DeVito, BAFTA Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Eva Green, and introduces Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins in their first film roles.

Although Burton himself was not present for D23, he did send a video from behind the scenes of the Dumbo remake saying hello to the crowd.

Derek Frey and Ehren Kruger will produce the screenplay written by Kruger. However, a flying elephant is big news, and it isn't long before Keaton and Green's entrepreneurial double-act sweep in with promises to make Dumbo a star...
