About the film
Director: Tim Burton
Actors: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Eva GreenHolt Farrier (Colin Farrell, WIDOWS) was once a circus star, living his life amongst colorful characters and wild animals. But war changes things (and people), and upon returning home from battle, Holt has to figure out how to reacclimate with everyday life. Fortunately, beleaguered circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito, SMALLFOOT) offers him a job, hiring him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant with ears so large that he’s become the laughingstock of the troupe.
But little do they know that the very thing that makes Dumbo the butt of their jokes is what makes Dumbo special: his ears are big enough that they allow him to fly. Dumbo’s extraordinary ability turns things around for the struggling circus and attracts the attention of suave, smooth-talking entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING), who wants Dumbo to be a part of his new entertainment venture, Dreamland. But once they enter Dreamland, Holt and Dumbo soon discover that it is much darker than its name would suggest.
A dazzling update of a beloved Disney classic from visionary director Tim Burton (FRANKENWEENIE), DUMBO is a delightful, emotional adventure that will make your heart soar.
