Director: Tim Burton
Starring: Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito
Duration: 112 min
A beloved tale soars to new heights in a dazzling live-action re-imagining of the classic 1941 animation DUMBO, directed by the visionary Tim Burton (BIG FISH).
Eccentric circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Farrell) and his children to care for Dumbo, a baby elephant whose giant ears have made him the laughing stock of an already struggling troupe. When they discover these floppy ears allow Dumbo to fly, the peculiar pachyderm soars into the limelight and saves the circus. But his wondrous talents also catch the eye of suave impresario V. A. Vandevere (Keaton), whose larger-than-life attraction, Dreamland, hides some dark secrets...
Packed with irreverence and subversive humour, the animated story of the secret lives of pets continues with new challenges for Max, Gidget, Snowball and the gang to contend with. For terrier Max, it's ditching his anxiety about protecting his owner's toddler; for Pomeranian Gidget, it's rescuing Max's favourite toy from a flat full of felines; and for crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball, it's being a hero after only pretending to be one. Can our furry friends summon the courage to face their biggest fears?
