Starring Colin Farrell, 42, and Eva Green, 37, the new one-minute-and-20-second clip opens viewers’ eyes to Tim Burton’s re-imagining of the animated classic.

‘Look at that,’ are the first words uttered from the mouth of The Guard actor upon finding the large-eared elephant.

The first visuals from the film open to the tune of Baby Mine, the famed song that introduced the world to Dumbo in the original 1941 animated film.

In this short teaser trailer, the elephant is found in a pile of hay by former showman and one-armed war veteran Holt Farrier – played by Farrell – and his two children, Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins).

‘We’re all family here no matter how small,’ says Milly to the fresh-eyed titular star voiced by Frank Welker.
