Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.
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.
The circus troupe assembled for the film hailed from all over the world. Significant language barriers made it difficult for the performers to connect. One day they set up a ping-pong table, which helped the performers to socialize with each other. See more »
When Holt arrives at the train station he is wearing three medals, a Croix de Guerre, an Army Distinguished Service Cross, and a World War I Victory Medal. Although the Victory Medal was already earned by 1919, the Army did not issue the medals until June of 1920. Also the Victory Medal would probably have a Citation Star since he had earned the DSC.

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 »
So Dumbo can fly! Big deal. But that is not what the story is about
This should be a simple touching fable of a little elephant finding himself over all odds. This has now been lost
Loads of character actors hamming it up, obliterating everything around it including little Dumbo
Over produced. and overlong ( The original was just over sixty minutes
No heart; no tears;. No film
What a shame!
