On Wednesday, Disney released the first taste of what audiences can expect when they see Tim Burton's live-action remake of Dumbo.

This March, the beloved tale will take you to new heights. Watch the new trailer for Disney’s #Dumbo.

That means that we get our first look at the famous elephant, who struggles to fit in among his kind because of the very thing that makes him special: those ears.

Disney's head of distribution, Cathleen Taff, said at CinemaCon in April that Burton would use the ending of the original 1941 animated version as a jumping-off point for this new iteration.

And though the original movie was a product of its time, one can only hope that the powers that be over at Disney held off on the racism this time.

The teaser made a lot of fans pretty nostalgic. People couldn't help becoming emotional hearing the haunting cover of the lullaby "Baby Mine," a song featured in the original movie.

Honestly...same.

Others remarked on how incredible the CGI appeared.
