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

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'll be darned if it still doesn't pack a punch ... that is, if you believe.
29 March 2019 | by robfollowerSee all my reviews

Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure "Dumbo" expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. There are more than a few changes made to the beloved 1940 classic. This time out, the focus is more on how the title character's physics-defying abilities affect the humans around him. "Dumbo" also has a darker overtone . I rather enjoyed the twist. As you would expect from a Burton production, this is a visual knockout. Dumbo is about the cutest pixelated creature you're likely to see, and he's a wonder to behold. Yet it's the reaction of the marginalized characters to his amazing feats that are the key to the film. When Dumbo soars, they soar with him his success is their success as he defies everyone's preconceptions of him by simply believing in himself.
