Happy Mothers Day!

(I know some of these ladies are not really moms, but they’re included because not all mother figures are actual mothers)

Facts about the upcoming Dumbo Live Action / CGI to the max remake… 

directed by - Tim Burton (Sleepy Hollow, Nightmare before Christmas, Johnny Depp’s male lover)

screenplay by - Ehren Kruger (Transformers movies, and a list of horror movies / action movies - I’m worried at this point) 

actors - most likely johnny depp as mrs.jumbo and tim burton as the stork. helena bonham carter will play dumbo’s left ear. they still have a 30 movie collab contract to fulfil. throw in a bunch of CGI elephants with huge eyes and sunken in cheekbones and voila 

music - danny elfman most likely.
