A live-action version of Disney animated classic “Dumbo” is in the works.

“Transformers” franchise writer Ehren Kruger has been tapped to pen the script for the upcoming feature, which will introduce a family arc into the story, in addition to the original tale about a circus elephant with big ears who befriends a mouse and learns how to fly, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original film was released in 1941 and won an Oscar for Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture.

This isn’t the only live-action version of an animated film in the works by Disney executives – they are also developing a “Beauty and the Beast” and “Cinderella” remake.
