Arcade Fire is going to the circus!
Grab your tissues, because the latest trailer for the upcoming live-action Disney movie Dumbo features a rendition of the original movie’s heartbreaking “Baby Mine” by Arcade Fire. The Canadian rock band’s version of the song appears in the 2019 film’s end credits.
The retelling of the 1941 classic glides into theaters later this month and tells the story of a baby elephant born with abnormally large ears, who is separated from his mother. “Baby Mine” scored his mom’s reaction to losing Dumbo in the original movie. When Dumbo is introduced to the circus audience, he is ridiculed for his big ears until he shows them what’s what but using them to fly.
The revived movie is directed by Tim Burton and stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and more. Arcade Fire’s last album was 2017’s Everything Now.
Dumbo soars into theaters March 29, and the soundtrack is also out that same day. Listen to a preview of the song in the clip above.
