Disney used tonight’s Grammy Awards on CBS to promote several of its upcoming movies, including its live-action remake of Dumbo.
The new trailer begins with Danny DeVito’s Max Medici welcoming fans to the Medici Family Circus, along with shots of the massive circus itself.
Medici tells the crowd that his circus is, ‘where anything can happen and miracles happen,’ along with a shot of Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) giving Dumbo a hug.
The trailer then reveals the title elephant on a pedestal, which visitors watch being raised into the air, with Medici calling him their, ‘world-famous flying elephant.’
The trailer then cuts to a scene with Michael Keaton’s V.A. Vandevere saying, ‘Just when I thought I had seen everything.’
There are also a number of random shots from the circus including a number of different performers, plus a scene with Vandevere and Alan Arkin’s J. Griffen Remington asking Medici, ‘What do you think of that?’
There is also a brief shot of Joe handing a feather to Eva Green’s Colette Merchant, telling her, ‘he won’t fly without a feather,’ as Merchant eyes it curiously.
Colin Farrell’s Holt Farrier is also seen saying, ‘All right, Dumbo, give me a show-stopper,’ while Milly says, ‘Fly Dumbo,’ before the elephant takes to the skies.
Dumbo is seen taking an aerial lap around the circus tent, which astonishes both the assembled crowd and even Medici himself.
