The adaptation of the 1941 film about an adorable flying elephant, follows other recent successful live-action movies from Disney, including Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland.

The studio also has live-action versions of Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast currently in the works.

In May, Disney announced limited Blu-ray and DVD editions of many of its classic family movies, with unique artwork inspired by their villains.
