"Here Dumbo, show 'em." 

The first teaser trailer for Tim Burton's live-action adaptation of Walt Disney's animated classic "Dumbo" was released on Tuesday, and it shows the beloved titular elephant take flight for the first time. 

The movie is said to be an expansion of the original's story, which premiered way back in 1941. 

Its synopsis reads: "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." 

The movie is scheduled for a March 2019 release.
