Samuel L. Jackson
Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.
Holt was once a circus star until he went off to war and returned terribly altered. Circus owner Max Medici hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughingstock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere and aerial artist Colette Marchant swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
A clown congratulates a successful Dumbo with a bottle of champagne, but Medici shoos him away saying babies shouldn't have booze. This is a homage to Dumbo getting drunk in Dumbo (1941), which set off the "Pink Elephants on Parade" song. See more »
Dumbo performs at the big tent and flies out breaking the front doors with glass flying. A few seconds later people are leaving the same show out the same doors which are not damaged. See more »
Come on, time to go. We haven't got all day. Get that monkey on the train. The Medici Brothers' circus is taking off!

The first half of the closing credits has the text (including the title) zooming sightly back from 3D to 2D. See more »
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!
