The live action Dumbo movie is still in the early stages of production, and not much is known about it other than it is being directed by spooky king Tim Burton. However, we finally got a sneak peek of what Dumbo the elephant is going to look like. And for some reason, many people seem surprised that a Tim Burton movie is going to be a little creepy. They must be new here.
Check out the photos below!
This sneak peek of the life-sized model of Dumbo that was revealed at this year’s D23 Expo has been floating around Twitter for a while, and people are not happy.
Apparently, everyone seems to think he's terrifying! Check out some reactions.

Aren't we supposed to feel sorry for Dumbo? Not run away shrieking?

A Tim Burton Dumbo movie is pretty much the pinnacle of something I never want to see. https://t.co/JsIA1LnQAS

Tim Burton's Dumbo is crouched in a corner of your bedroom, half-visible in the dim light. He sees you.

These guys aren't as big of Burton fans as we are. Really, we think Tim Burton could have gone way creepier with Dumbo. He actually looks pretty cute.
Aside from the Dumbo model, there are some rumours about casting floating around that include Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell. Danny DeVito is playing the circus' ringmaster.
What do you think of Tim Burton's Dumbo? Too creepy, or not creepy enough? Sound off in the comments below!
