Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
This is the second Disney film to have a heroine named Collette, after Ratatouille (2007). See more »
When Dumbo escapes from the circus with Milly's help, he flies over the Brooklyn Bridge and in the background they show the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. The Empire State started construction in 1930 and the Chrysler Building started construction in 1928 yet the movie is set in 1919 and early 1920s. See more »

Hi, baby Dumbo, welcome to the circus. We're all family here, no matter how small.

At the end of the closing credits a brief bit of "When I See an Elephant Fly" plays, which was heard at the end of Dumbo (1941). See more »
You could've replaced each actor with a wooden plank and you would have had more emotional range in this film. Tim Burton has managed to disappoint, once again. Save your money and watch the original Dumbo instead. The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because Dumbo, himself, was cute. That's it.
