  • Disney’s “Dumbo” is a live-action remake.
  • The movie centers on an elephant with big ears.
  • The human cast looks a little different from their normal appearance.

Disney’s “Dumbo” is being brought to life in a live-action remake from Tim Burton.

Centering on a circus, the story is about a baby elephant whose large ears allow him to fly. Though the titular character is an elephant, much of the cast are human. The cast went through some physical changes to play their characters.
