Dumbo is getting ready to soar into theaters on March 29 — but before then you may see him in the skies above your house! Plus, in other Dumbo news, we’ve just learned that the band Arcade Fire will be performing “Baby Mine” from the original film during the end credits of the new film.
Disney’s new, live-action Dumbo will include the lullaby “Baby Mine” from the original animated classic. The new film’s version of the lullaby will be performed by the band Arcade Fire — a band with a special connection to the original film.
Arcade Fire’s Win Butler states: “There is a scene with a locomotive in the original Dumbo that uses an instrument called the Sonovox that my grandpa Alvino Rey made famous in the 1930s.”
The scene Butler references features the lullaby “Baby Mine” and portrays a touching moment between mother and son. Watch and listen to this special sneak peek at the film and Arcade Fire’s “Baby Mine”.
As you wait for the film to open be sure to look up! You might see Dumbo flying over your house!
