MAX MEDICI (Danny DeVito), the owner of the struggling Medici Bros. circus, purchases an expectant mother elephant in hopes that her adorable offspring will bring in the crowds. But when the baby is born with giant ears, Medici’s hopes are dashed–until he discovers that Dumbo can fly. Things are looking up, literally, for Medici and his circus—especially when an entrepreneur with money to spend makes him an offer he can’t refuse.
HOLT FARRIER (Colin Farrell) is a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from World War I. He has lost his wife and his circus act, and struggles to connect with his two children, Milly and Joe. When he is asked by the circus owner to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock, Holt doesn’t exactly jump at the opportunity—but his children do, which opens the door to a future bond he never saw coming.
DUMBO, a newborn elephant with a sweet disposition and oversized ears, is the newest addition to Max Medici’s run-down circus. His differences initially alarm Medici, who’d been banking on a cute baby to attract huge audiences–until Dumbo discovers he can use those ears to fly. Dumbo finds it hard to celebrate though, when his beloved mother is taken from him, leaving him lost and afraid—and the star attraction in a state-of-the-art amusement park called Dreamland.
V.A. VANDEVERE (Michael Keaton) is a persuasive entrepreneur who sets his sights on Max Medici’s circus and its newest, miraculous member—a flying elephant. Yet all Vandevere can see are dollar signs. He plans to make Dumbo a big star in his state-of-the-art amusement utopia, Dreamland, by pairing him with a stunning aerial artist named Colette. With Vandevere’s eye on the prize—nothing and nobody can stop him.
COLETTE MARCHANT (Eva Green) is a French-born performer, accomplished aerialist, high-flying star and the sparkling presence on V.A. Vandevere’s arm when he recruits Dumbo for his state-of-the-art amusement park called Dreamland. Much to Colette’s surprise, Vandevere casts her in a new act alongside the flying elephant. But teaming up with Dumbo and the family who cares for him reveals more to Colette about show business—and herself—than she ever imagined.
All will be revealed when Dumbo flies into theaters everywhere on Friday, March 29. Sign up for a FanAlert and be the first to know when tickets and other exclusives are available in your area.
