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.
The tank that houses Miss Atlantis was constructed with double walls - a narrow internal tank that lined the bigger tank was filled with water and fish to create the illusion that she was underwater. See more »
If you're expecting it to be like the original, then you won't like it. I was completely disappointed. I was hoping for a realistic rendition of Dumbo. This just wasn't it. Really, REALLY bad acting by the kid actors (no emotion at all, ever. They sounded like they were literally reading from the script and not acting it out) and a lot of old actors that can't find jobs were casted in this. For being a Tim Burton (my favorite!) movie, it is probably his worst one. And it didn't stick to the story line at all, except that Dumbo flies. The story centered around Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton and oh by the way there's Dumbo and some French lady trying to fly on him 🙄 I think kids who have never seen the original will like it. Dumbo is very cute and realistic, but the rest just didn't do it for me 😕
