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.
In 2019, a beloved tale will take you to new heights.

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
