‘Transformers’ Scribe to Adapt ‘Dumbo’ to Live Action


It worked for 101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, so why not Dumbo?

Disney has announced it is developing a live-action feature film based on its 1941 animated classic Dumbo, about a shy little elephant with big ears that let him fly.

Writing the script is Ehren Kruger, who most recently penned Transformers: Age of Extinction. Kruger also will produce with Justin Springer.

Dumbo is the most recent adaptation of a Disney animated classic to live action, with Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast also all in the works.

    What? I think it would fit better as 3d animation than live-action. Dumbo as live-action would be difficult and painful to pull off.

    Someone sat down and wrote that mess?

    *Throws up in a corner* Well my childhood is about to be ruined but I guess like Maleficent and Alice I’ll just deny its existence from the world and leave it at that.

    This is just sad. Why not spend time and money on something original?
