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.
The filmmakers brought in real circus performers to bring a sense of authenticity to their circus. This included circus choreographer Kristian Kristof, a Hungarian fourth-generation circus performer who provided extensive circus knowledge and international circus connections to aid the production.

The last puff of black smoke from Casey Jr. reveals the opening title design, which zooms sightly forward in 3D. For the transition, the title degenerates into blue smoke. 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.
