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.

Did You Know?


This is the first live action reboot of a Disney animated feature film that's completely original and not an adaption of anything. The original Dumbo film was based on a children's story, but it wasn't a fairy tale, but a tool for a miniature panorama toy device. See more »


V. A. Vandevere: [from trailer] You have something very rare. You have wonder. You have mystique. You have magic.
Max Medici: [seeing Dumbo soar around the circus] Whoaaaaaaaaa!
V. A. Vandevere: Come with me. Together, we can soar on that elephant's wings.
