Director Tim Burton has been tapped by Disney to direct the live-action remake of its 1941 classic, Dumbo. Although details are scarce at the moment, the story of the baby circus elephant who learns that his enormous ears can make him fly will be written by Transformers: Dark of the Moon screenwriter Ehren Kruger. Sounds exciting!

The 56-year old director is no stranger to bringing Disney characters to life. In 2010, he brought in the big bucks for the American company with his version of Alice in Wonderland starring a creepy Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Tim's ex, Helena Bonham Carter (we still can’t believe they broke up). The film grossed more than $1billion worldwide and is considered one of the most successful live-action films of all time.

Jumbo Junior (or Dumbo) is one of the cutest and sweetest Disney characters in our books and we hope ol' Tim lets him stay that way.
