HOLLYWOOD – Disney release first image from new live action Dumbo, starring Will Smith.
The first picture from Disney’s live action Dumbo starring Will Smith was published on the internet today. The image shows Will Smith in full costume and prosthetic make up, playing the eponymous baby elephant with the enormous ears.
Disney fan and Smith watcher Dave Buckiss told the Studio Exec:
Frankly it’s disappointing. It just looks like a picture of Will. His ears look about the same size. I’m not sure what we’re supposed to make of it.
Director Tim Burton, however, insisted he was delighted with his star.
Firstly, Will doesn’t just play a role he becomes that person. Like when he was playing Ali. Now he’s playing another icon, although not one that floated like a butterfly! Ha ha, nope. And as you can see from the picture, he’s almost unrecognizable as the Fresh Prince that we all know and love. Johnny Depp called last night and I couldn’t really understand what he was saying. But I bet it was something like ‘Will Smith is so much better than I am.’ Something along those lines.
