Concept Art of the title character was highlighted at the CinemaCon.
Disney showed the elephant in the room – so to speak – and showed the first footage from Tim Burton's upcoming remake of the 1941 Disney animated classic Dumbo during his slate presentation on Tuesday at CinemaCon.
The company showed only conceptual art of the title character with his big ears, blue eyes and his sweet, emotional expression that will be CG in the last movie.
However, the clips gave a first glimpse of their live-action stars including Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Colin Farrell under the big top in a dark but stylized Burton-style circus.
The craft looks first-rate from Burton's longtime collaborators, including Oscar-winning production designer Rick Heinrichs and four Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood.
Dumbo is currently in production post production in London. It was shot in the UK in Pinewood and Cardington Studios.
The studio played behind-the-scenes footage of his upcoming vacation movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms by Lasse Hallstrom. The guests were given an insight into Conceptual Art and Clips of the Four Realms, shot by cinematographer Linus Sandgren (Oscar winner La La Land ) and the lavish production design of double Oscar-nominated Guy Hendrix Dyas. And guests learned that the film will contain a new ballet number explaining the history of the empires.
