Dumbo: grab the tissues before you watch the new trailer

A new trailer has been released for Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Dumbo and it’s a bit emotional.

You probably already know the story back to front but this new version is giving us all of the feels. Grab a tissue and press play on the trailer below:

Tim Burton helms Dumbo, which stars Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Eva Green and Michael Keaton. The new version expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.

Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

A new poster showing Dumbo in flight has also been released:
