People are literally crying their eyes out after watching the very first 'Dumbo' trailer

While I'm sure you didn't wake up this morning intending to cry, I've got bad news for you: today isn't going to go how you thought it would - not by a long shot.

Why, you ask? For one important reason: the trailer for Dumbo is finally here, and it's about to rip your heart out.

Scheduled for release on March 29, 2019, the new movie is a live-action remake, loosely inspired by Walt Disney's 1941 animated film of the same name.

It will follow an elephant who is an outcast for having oversize ears, but soon finds he is capable of flying by using his ears as wings.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin, from a first look at the trailer, it's got everything you need in a film and more.

But, before you watch it, a serious warning: come emotionally prepared, because this film can and will break you.

As soon as the trailer was released, people around the world took to social media to share their feelings. And, needless to say, they had a lot of feelings.

"I have a feeling that new one will be more heart breaking than the original. And I can't watch the original without crying my eyes out. Trailer already made me cry!!! (sic)" wrote Twitter user @88_Adelheid.

She was joined by @julietjohnson97, who posted: "I just saw the trailer to the live action Dumbo and elephants are one of my favorite animals I DONT KNOW IF ILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT IM GOING TO CRY MY HEART OUT (sic)".

In addition, @MMcDongal wrote: "I didn’t think any Disney movie could be as sad as the animated #Dumbo. I was wrong. The live action #Dumbo looks like it will pull your heart out, stomp on it, and make you cry harder than any Disney movie before. (Until the new Lion King movie comes out). #Findyourcourage (sic)".

For other people online, the footage made them pumped for the upcoming Disney year. You can't deny, it's looking pretty good with Dumbo in March, Aladdin on May 24, Toy Story 4 on June 21, The Lion King on July 19 and Frozen 2 on November 22.

Finally, for many fans, the trailer was a stark reminder that what happens to Dumbo in the film happens to real life elephants - and many other animals - all the time.

"It is a tragic irony that we are devastated by this scene in the new #Dumbo movie , yet fail to recognise that this is happening to real elephants as a result of human actions (sic)," tweeted @BellaLack.

@kayesthetical agreed, writing: "the trailer for the live-action movie of dumbo made me cry. elephants are such precious creatures that needs to be protected at all costs (sic)."

So, are you ready to find your courage and watch Dumbo on March 29? You have four months to prepare.
