Tim Burton to Direct Live-Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie

The trend of Disney turning their classic cartoons into live-action movies continues, this time with a version of Dumbo.

Much like Alice in Wonderland, the film will be directed by Tim Burton.

According to Walt Disney Pictures president of production Sean Bailey, the film (which does not yet have a release date) will be a combination of live action actors and CGI.

Furthermore, the film will take place in a “big world” and features Dumbo learning more than just how to fly.

Other live-action films in the works include Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book.

Tim Burton will not be part of the Alice in Wonderland sequel starring Johnny Depp, the actor who can no longer say no. To anything.
