Dumbo

"An enchanting blend of Disney twinkle and Tim Burton’s dark whimsy that’s at its best when venturing off the beaten path." ★★★★ Empire

Showing Times

Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists performer Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly and Joe to care for newborn Dumbo. The kids fall in love with the winsome, clumsy, big-eared baby elephant and are at pains to protect him from ridicule. Their faith is vindicated when Dumbo's freakish ears prove to be the saving of the struggling circus, and when the flying pachyderm is hired by entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton) as the star attraction in spiffing new attraction, Dreamland, it looks like a golden future beckons.  All that glitters is not gold, though...

The beloved 1941 animated version feels a bit suss in these times so this is a fundamental rejig of the original - and who better than Tim Burton to do it!  There haven't been any previews as yet, but it looks to have all the usual Disney magic, with the distinctive high gloss of Burton at his impressive best.  We expect this one to fly!
