Disney Developing Live-Action Adaptation of Dumbo


According to a recent report by THR, Disney is currently developing a new live-action take on the iconic 1941 animated classic Dumbo. The script is written by Ehren Kruger (Transformers), while also serving as co-producer alongside Justine Springer (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion.)

For the uninitiated (or for those who have already forgotten,) Dumbo focuses on the story of a baby circus elephant who is made fun of because of his abnormally large ears. The new live action adaptation will take the original movie and add a unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story.

Aside from Dumbo, Disney also has several other live-action adaptations in the pipeline, including Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast.
