Disney(NEW YORK) -- Get ready to grab a tissue.  The first live-action Dumbo trailer has arrived. 

Tim Burton directs this remake on the 1941 animated Disney classic film, and we don’t have to wait long to get our first glimpse of the little elephant using his huge ears to fly.

"Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight," the official description from Disney reads.

The trailer appears to follow the original’s main story -- including the heartbreaking separation of Dumbo and his mother.  But then the circus owner leads Dumbo and his child friends on a mission to reunite Dumbo and his mom. 

Dumbo stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Danny DeVito and Alan Arkin.  It opens March 29 of next year from Disney, parent company of ABC News.
