When I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of Dumbo. I watched it over and over again, begged for it. I knew every word. Now, I am getting the chance to reignite my love for the story as Tim Burton brings Dumbo to life.
The live action adaptation which stars Colin Ferrell, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, and Eva Green now has a synopsis.
Holt (Colin Farrell) 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, entrepreneur V.A Vendevere (Michael Keaton) and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
Dumbo is set to make it’s way to theaters March 29, 2019.
