Tim Burton is an excellent director. We can see his work in Batman, Big Eyes, Alice in Wonderland and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. Now he will be directing Disney’s live-action remake of Dumbo. The news was confirmed by the Walt Disney Pictures president of production Sean Bailey. WSJ first reported about this news.
So we have been seeing this for a time that Disney has started to remake its classical animations. Dumbo is still in development and it still doesn't have a release date. Cinderella was also released this week. Next year we will see The Jungle Book and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
