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.
Sharon Rooney was tapped to sing "Baby Mine" in the film. The song is special to Rooney, as her grandmother used to sing it to her when she was a child. Rooney also had to learn to play the ukulele for the song; she'd never picked up the instrument before, but it took her just a week to learn to play the song. See more »
You could've replaced each actor with a wooden plank and you would have had more emotional range in this film. Tim Burton has managed to disappoint, once again. Save your money and watch the original Dumbo instead. The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because Dumbo, himself, was cute. That's it.
