Disney is to re-make Dumbo, one of its all-time classic movies.

Directed by Tim Burton, the 1941 cartoon about a baby elephant that learns to fly with his huge ears will be re-made as a live-action movie with computer generated characters playing Dumbo and his family.

Sean Bailey, Walt Disney Pictures president of production revealed the plans for Dumbo to The Wall Street Journal, telling the paper 'It's a big world.'

The script has been written by Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger.

The original movie concentrated of the story of little Dumbo and his mother, with the big eared circus elephant bullied mercilessly by the elders of his tribe until his ability to fly made him a star.
