Disney’s fantasy live-action adventure directed by Tim Burton, the story follows circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito), who enlists former circus star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.
But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Joe Farrier: [to Holt] Dad, wake up! Let’s go! The elephants need us.
[as they discover Dumbo buried under a pile of hay]
Holt Farrier: Look at that.
Max Medici: We got a baby. We got a baby.
[then he sees Dumbo for the first time]
Max Medici: What is that? A face only a mother could love.
Miss Atlantis: Sir, many of us find you handsome.
Max Medici: I was talking about the elephant!
[pointing to Dumbo]
Max Medici: You have until tomorrow night to fix that!
Holt Farrier: Me?
Max Medici: Make those ears disappear!
[Holt looks over to the magician]
Magician: Don’t look at me.
Milly Farrier: Hi, baby Dumbo. Welcome to the circus. We’re all family here, no matter how small.
Milly Farrier: You’re a miracle elephant, Dumbo.
V. A. Vandevere: Just when I thought I had seen everything.
V. A. Vandevere: [to Medici] You have something very rare. You have wonder. You have mystique. You have magic. Come with me. Together, we can soar on that elephant’s wings.
V. A. Vandevere: Is that a monkey in your desk?
[Medici opens his desk drawer, a monkey is holding a drink flask]
Max Medici: Just for emergencies.
[referring to as Dumbo’s mom, who is getting taken away]
Milly Farrier: What’s happening? Where are they taking her?
Holt Farrier: Take Dumbo back inside.
Joe Farrier: But she’s his mom, do something.
[referring to the forlorn looking Dumbo]
Milly Farrier: He needs us.
Milly Farrier: Look at me. We’re going to bring your mama home.
[referring to Dumbo dressed as a clown as he enters the circus]
Neils Skellig: He doesn’t look like magic to me.
[Dumbo trips on his ears and the audience laughs]
Colette Marchant: [to Holt] Your children need you to believe in them.
[referring to Dumbo]
Joe Farrier: He won’t fly without his feather.
Max Medici: Okay, big D. This is it, just like in rehearsal , except for lights, music, fire and crowds. You can do it.
Max Medici: Ladies and gentlemen, friends, young and old, welcome to The Medici Family Circus, where anything is possible and miracles happen. And now, introducing our world famous flying elephant.
[as he watches Dumbo fly]
V. A. Vandevere: He’s made me a child again.
Milly Farrier: Fly, Dumbo. Fly.
Milly Farrier: Here, Dumbo. You can do it, Dumbo. Show them.
[Dumbo suddenly flies as everyone in the circus stares in awe]
