Have you ever seen an elephant fly? For a limited time beginning in March, you will when you catch a special preview of scenes from Disney’s all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” in sneak peeks planned for Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and Disney Cruise Line. Check out this special message from two of the stars of the film, Danny DeVito and Colin Farrell.

Guests sailing with Disney Cruise Line during the month of March will get to see the “Dumbo” sneak peek while aboard the ships. At Disneyland park, the preview of “Dumbo” will be presented at the Main Street Opera House in Town Square, while Disney’s Hollywood Studios will include this advance look at a portion of the film as part of the Walt Disney Presents attraction.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” 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.

Here’s a look at the latest trailer for Disney’s “Dumbo,” which flies into theaters on March 29, 2019.

  • If this is going into the Opera House, what’s going on with Mr. Lincoln during that time?
