Dumbo (Live-action)

2019 | 112 min | K-7 | adventure, family, fantasy

Holt Ferrier, who was injured in the First World War, returns to work in the underperforming Medici brothers’ circus. Circus elephant Jumbo gives birth to baby elephant Dumbo. Circus owner Max Medici assigns Holt, a former star, and his children Milly and Joe to take care of a newborn elephant.

At first, everyone makes fun of Dumbo with giant ears, but they are surprised when Dumbo can actually fly thanks to his ears. Dumbo turns out to be an outright miracle, and for Medici, the flying elephant is the best tool to boost business. The new attraction of the circus is getting the attention of the big commercial entertainment machinery. Businessman and amusement park owner V. A. Vandevere takes an interest in Dumbo and hires him for his newest, larger-than-life Dreamland show.

Dumbo rises to new heights with the charming and flamboyant aerial acrobat, Colette Merchant. Then Holt learns that beneath Dreamland’s glittering surface lie dark secrets. Directed by Tim Burton. As actors, e.g. Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito.

For media educator

The film about the flying elephant is an adaptation of the classic Disney animation released in 1941. The new version starring human actors is more realistic than its predecessor and the target group is also slightly older. The main characters are kind and sympathetic, but the story also contains dark tones. The film deals with, among other things, bullying, people's cruelty towards animals, and children's separation from their parents.
