Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
So Dumbo can fly! Big deal. But that is not what the story is about
This should be a simple touching fable of a little elephant finding himself over all odds. This has now been lost
Loads of character actors hamming it up, obliterating everything around it including little Dumbo
Over produced. and overlong ( The original was just over sixty minutes
No heart; no tears;. No film
What a shame!
