The motion picture studio attempts to revive the 1941 classic animated film in a new live action format.
Dumbo, the baby elephant, was ridiculed for his enormously oversized ears, and due to this drew away from everyone and everything.
But everything changes for the young elephant when the children figure out that those massive ears give him the ability to fly. Entrepreneur V. A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton) sees the elephant performing his routine and decides to recruit Dumbo for “Dreamland,” his over the top circus.
For a while, Dumbo enjoys the fame and newest venue to perform at alongside aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt puts the pieces together that “Dreamland” is most definitely not the dream environment they thought it would be.
In the original film, the baby elephant is born with comically large ears and given the nickname Dumbo. One day while performing, he is taunted by a group of other children, drawing his mother into a rage that gets her locked up.
Dumbo’s ears then cause a major accident that injured many other elephants in the show, leading him to be made to dress like a clown and perform dangerous stunts.
The modern take on this Disney classic utilizes a variety of visual effects to take the original characters and bring them to life in a live action format.
