Nearly 80 years since the original movie was released, the first full trailer for the live-action Dumbo movie is here - and hints at plenty of heartbreak (and triumph) to come.

Yes, we've all seen the original but knowing the story doesn't make it any less heartbreaking, does it? Now the first full trailer introduces the wider world of the film.

It wouldn't Disney's Dumbo unless the soul-destroying scene was included when Dumbo's mum is taken away from him but comforts him through her cage with only her trunk - I'm not crying, you are. Draining out all the fun and entertainment from an animated classic worked well financially for Disney's Jungle Book remake and there's no reason to see why the studio can't make it work again for Dumbo.

In Dumbo, Danny DeVito plays the circus owner who recruits Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) to care for a newborn elephant with large ears. And you'll really believe he can fly after this!

However, the sources gave no details and it was not clear if the response contained concessions that would satisfy President Trump.

The cast for this new effort is stacked to the gills, sporting the likes of Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin. Dumbo's circus antics is enough to attract the attention of entrepreneur V. A. Vandemere (Michael Keaton), who enlists Dumbo for his "Dreamland" venture. It flies into theaters in March on big floppy ears and, based on the just-dropped trailer, it's going to be a Star is Born-level weepie.

Along with the trailer, Disney also released a new poster, which is slightly less upsetting.

Some people took to social media to note there was a certain few characters missing from the new film - the four crows who sing about seeing an elephant fly don't seem to feature in the trailer.
