ORLANDO, Fla. -- A special sneak peak at Disney's upcoming live-action film Dumbo will be shown at Disney World starting next month.

  • Dumbo sneak peak set for Disney World, Disneyland, cruise ships
  • The preview will be shown starting in March
  • Dumbo is scheduled to be released in theaters March 29

The preview will be added to the Walt Disney Presents attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

Directed by Tim Burton, the live-action Dumbo expands the story of the 1941 animated film. 

Former circus star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children (Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins) are put in charge of a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughingstock in a struggling circus run by Max Medici (Danny Devito). Things begin to turnaround when the family discovers that Dumbo can fly, which attracts the attention of entrepreneur V.A Vandevere (Michael Keaton). 

A special preview of the film will also be offered at the Main Street Opera House in Disneyland and aboard Disney Cruise Line ships.

Dumbo flies into theaters on March 29.
