Storyline

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.

Trivia

Walt Disney Pictures's fifth live-action adaption to be a remake after Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016), Pete's Dragon (2016), and The Beauty and The Beast (2017). This does not include Alice in Wonderland (2010) which was completely different and not based on the original animated classic in 1951, the same said for Christopher Robin (2018) which was a sequel to the Winnie the Pooh series as opposed to being a remake.

Goofs

When Holt arrives at the train station he is wearing three medals, a Croix de Guerre, an Army Distinguished Service Cross, and a World War I Victory Medal. Although the Victory Medal was already earned by 1919, the Army did not issue the medals until June of 1920. Also the Victory Medal would probably have a Citation Star since he had earned the DSC.

I'm not too GROWN UP to love this movie!
10 April 2019 | by wonderfullyberrySee all my reviews

Was this movie PERFECT? No. But...it was very enjoyable. I'm confused as to what other people are needing... Great actors? This has that. An interesting story? Got it. Stunning visuals? Check. Drama? Sad moments? Happy moments? Nostalgia? Fantastic score? Elements from the original? A warm fuzzy ending? PINK ELEPHANTS?!! (It has all those things). In this day of opinions and people depending on screens to LIVE...I think we've forgotten the magic of the ORIGINAL screen. What happened to just going to a movie, and enjoying it for what it is? What is so EXCITING about your life that you find this boring? Umm there are a couple circuses and a freaking flying elephant in this movie!! To me, that's interesting enough. And the sweet sweet storyline between Dumbo and Mrs. Jumbo. Perhaps only the moms out there can relate...but there is NOTHING like the bond between a mama and her baby, and I loved that the story had a great deal of that to offer.

I love Tim Burton, and I think he did a really wonderful job with this movie. I dare you to go see it and leave your judgment in the car.
