Danny Elfman To Score Tim Burton’s Live-Action DUMBO!

A familiar name is set to compose the live action remake of Dumbo, and it’s a Disney Legend!

Danny Elfman confirmed during a press interview promoting his Danny Elfman’s Music From the Films of Tim Burton concert in Mexico City later this month that he will be reuniting with director Tim Burton on the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s Dumbo.

The movie starring Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito and Alan Arkin is based on the studio’s 1941 animated classic of the same title about the young elephant with extraordinarily large ears who develops the skill to fly. Ehren Kruger (The Ring, Arlington Road, Scream 3) wrote the screenplay and is also producing the project with Katterli Frauenfelder, Derek Frey and Justin Springer (Prom).

Elfman has previously scored all of Burton’s movies except for 1995’s Ed Wood, 2007’s Sweeney Todd and last year’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Dumbo is set to be released on March 29, 2019.
