Burton, who helmed a successful 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland for Disney, is reteaming with the studio for a remake of the 1941 animated classic Dumbo, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal and Mashable.

The original film followed a gentle cartoon animal ridiculed for the size of his ears, though they gave Dumbo the ability of flight. Details aren't known about the new version, though it's expected to feature a mix of live action and computer animation.
