Disney's beloved floppy-eared elephant returns in Tim Burton's re-imagining of the children's classic Dumbo

The animation empire released its first teaser trailer featuring the star-studded cast which includes Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton.

Following on from re-makes of Cinderella, Maleficent, Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast, Disney's latest live-action offering is a dark tale in typical Burton style, the Daily Mail reports.   

The trailer opens to the melancholy tune of Baby Mine, the famed song that introduced the world to Dumbo in the original 1941 animated film. 

In this short teaser, the elephant is found in a pile of hay by former showman and one-armed war veteran Holt Farrier - played by Farrell - and his two children, Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins). 

"We're all family here no matter how small," says Milly to the fresh-eyed titular star voiced by Frank Welker. 

The clip dives into the dark and glimmering spectacular that is the world of Dreamland - the name of the film's circus setting.

Eva stars as Colette Marchant, a French trapeze artist, and she is seen for the first time gliding through the air while effortlessly holding onto a chandelier.

The trailer ends as the circus workers stare in amazement as the young pachyderm takes flight. 

Dumbo is set to hit theatres in March, 2019.
