Holt Farrier has returned from war and has a young family to care for. Once a star performer, the veteran has been changed by the sights and experiences of the battlefield and finds it impossible to return to his former profession.
Max Medici owns a family-run circus, featuring all manner of performers and animals. Max agrees to hire Holt, but not as a performer – Holt will be responsible for caring for the animals. And there’s one animal that he and his family really need to pay attention to…Dumbo is the laughingstock of the show, a baby elephant with huge, oversized ears. But there is far more to Dumbo than meets the eye, as Holt and the children discover that Dumbo’s ears enable the little elephant to fly! With some gentle encouragement and reassurance from his newfound friends, Dumbo’s confidence slowly grows until he can reveal his talents to a wider audience. But as crowds start to gather to see the amazing flying elephant, the performers discover a dark secret that will push this family to their limits…
Dumbo is a live-action reimagining of Disney’s classic 1941 animation directed by the prolific Tim Burton, celebrated for his work on Alice In Wonderland, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
