Struggling circus owner Max Medici enlists a former star and his two children to care for Dumbo, a baby elephant born with oversized ears. When the family discovers that the animal can fly, it soon becomes the main attraction — bringing in huge audiences and revitalizing the run-down circus. The elephant’s magical ability also draws the attention of V.A. Vandevere, an entrepreneur who wants to showcase Dumbo in his latest, larger-than-life entertainment venture.
Peter Travers from the Rolling Stone Magazine commented: This live-action re-imagining of Disney’s 1941 animated classic may be the sweetest film Tim Burton has ever made. On point ! Kids of all ages, creatives and the audience loves Dumbo and the new editions make him even fly higher.
