The synopsis for the film is as follows:
Holt, a former circus star, finds his life turned upside-down when he returns from the War. Circus owner Max Medici enlists him to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughing stock in an already struggling circus. But, when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V. A. Vandemere and aerial artist Colette Marchant swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.
The live-action adaptation is directed by Tim Burton, with the screenplay written by Ehren Kruger. The film stars Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Alan Arkin, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Debbie Oparei and Joseph Gatt.
