WATCH: First trailer for 'Dumbo' is out

MANILA, Philippines – The first trailer for the live-action movie Dumbo was released on Wednesday, June 13, and it promises a movie that's going to take you to new heights. 

Directed by Tim Burton, the man behind Beetlejuice, Alice In Wonderland, and Edward Scissorhands to name a few, the trailer introduces viewers to Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), who returns from the war and is tasked to take care of the young Dumbo.

Born with extraordinarily long ears, Dumbo quickly becomes the circus' laughingstock. But then Holt's children discover that the tiny pachyderm can fly. 

Danny DeVito plays circus owner Max Medici, Eva Green stars as aerial artist Colette Marchant, while Michael Keaton plays the entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere.
