Between Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins and The Lion King, Disney knows how to rake in the $$$$$! And they have another idea - Dumbo!
Apparently, the 1941 animated classic Dumbo is being adapted for the stage, but we'd argue that the show is far too sad!
It's rumored that Stephen Daldry, who won the Tony last year for Billy Elliot, was in talks to direct and passed.
Guess no one wants to be responsible for effing up Dumbo!
Let's just hope they get rid of those crows! Yikes!
