Storyline

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.

Best acting was from the elephants
2 April 2019 | by dave8999See all my reviews

No matter what the story was, how they tried to ramp up the excitement, it was all utterly let down by the worst set of acting I have seen since my sons infant school nativity. These are supposedly professionals, those who pay their hard earned money to go and watch this, deserve better.
