With a little over a month to go until the live-action Dumbo hits theaters, Disney is giving fans another sneak peek at the anticipated film.
The newest trailer aired on Sunday during a commercial break for the 2019 Grammy Awards — and the minute-long footage, filled with action and color, gave fans even more of a glimpse into the upcoming remake of the animated classic.
The first clip, which dropped in June and introduced Dumbo’s new look, was a little darker than the original film and full of Burton’s signature tones.
Meanwhile, Sunday’s new preview showed off the big moment when the baby elephant with big ears takes the podium and magically flies around a circus arena crowd.
The film stars Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton as well as Thandie Newton’s lookalike teen daughter, Nico Parker.
The new Dumbo is directed by Alice in Wonderland’s Tim Burton, who is no stranger to crafting retellings of classic Disney tales.

“It was always one of my favorite Disney stories and one I had fond memories of,” Burton told PEOPLE last year. “It’s a very sweet story, and also very simple and primal — I think that’s why people like it so much. It’s about an outsider, someone who is misperceived, and I’ve always been drawn to stories like that.”
Of being on set, Farrell said the experience was unlike anything else he’s ever been a part of.
“Walking on set was jaw dropping,” he previously told PEOPLE. “Tim’s vision for this world and his honoring of not only the purity, but the true strength and resilience of children was like nothing I have been a part of in film before.”
Dumbo will be released on March 29.
