"Watching him [Burton] cut loose (more recklessly than his flying baby elephant) is by far the most unexpected pleasure of this movie, which dusts off the 1941 animated charmer with exhilaratingly demented spirit."
- The New York Times
After circus owner Max Medici takes on caring for a newborn elephant, Dumbo, he enlists the help of a former star and his two children for the animal whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock at the struggling circus. When the family discovers that Dumbo can fly, he soon becomes the main attraction. A persuasive entrepreneur becomes interested in showcasing Dumbo in his latest, larger-than-life entertainment venture - Dreamland. However, as Dumbo soars to new heights, the Medici family learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, this all-new, grand, live-action adventure brings a visually striking, modern retelling to the beloved 1941 classic animated film. Starring Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, and Eva Green, Dumbo is a wondrous new adventure where differences are celebrated, family is cherished, and dreams take flight.
