Furthermore, production has already begun in London with Burton helming a cast that includes Colin Farrell and veterans of the filmmaker Eva Green (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children), Michael Keaton (Beetlejuice), and Danny DeVito (Batman Returns). But it is the Casey Jr. train and the concept art that tells us a lot about the world that Burton is creating.

Holt Farrier (Farrell) is a former circus star returning from the war, who is persuaded to care for a baby elephant by Max Medici (DeVito), the owner of a struggling circus.

The details were revealed at Disney's D23 expo yesterday (July 15), where they also said that state-of-the-art visual effects will be used to create main character, Dumbo.

'But when Holt's children (Parker and Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star'. The cast also includes Roshan Seth, DeObia Oparei, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith.

Production for Disney's newest live-action film, Dumbo, is now underway, and director Tim Burton is now in England shooting the film.

Will Burton reprise the sequence with another singalong? Instead, Disney officially confirmed him for a role in the live-action Aladdin remake with Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Mena Massoud as the titular street rat.

Dumbo continues Disney's latest trend of bringing live-action versions of its beloved properties to life, with The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast being the most recent additions to an ever-growing catalog.

But even if it's not attached to a score sheet, we're hoping Burton will adapt the Pink Elephants on Parade sequence from the original.

Dumbo will soar into cinemas in March 2019.
