Here is a short review of "Dumbo" movie plot summary.
In 1919, equestrian performer and World War I amputee Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) returns after the war to his previous employer, the Medici Brothers' Circus, run by Max Medici (Danny DeVito). The circus has run into financial troubles and Medici reveals he was forced to sell his stable of horses after Holt's wife and co-performer, Annie, died from the Spanish flu outbreak; instead, he hires Holt as the caretaker for the circus' pregnant Asian elephant Mother Ella Jumbo. She gives birth to a calf with unusually large ears and Medici orders Holt to hide them, fearing how the public might react to such a deformity.
However, the calf accidentally reveals his ears in his debut performance in Joplin, Missouri, and the crowd laugh and mockingly name the calf as "Dumbo" while pelting him with peanuts and other objects. Mrs. Jumbo, horrified and enraged by her son's mistreatment, rampages into the ring, causing extensive damage and collapsing the big top while also accidentally killing a handler who antagonizes her. Anticipating a public outcry, Medici resorts to selling Mrs. Jumbo. Holt's son and daughter, Joe and Milly Farrier (Nico Parker), comfort Dumbo (Edd Osmond) and discover that he can fly by flapping his ears. The children also discover that feathers are the key to Dumbo's willingness to fly.
Dumbo is then forced to play the role of a firefighter clown in an act where he has to put out a fire with water sprayed from his trunk, but the performance goes awry, and Dumbo is trapped on a high platform surrounded by flames. Milly delivers a feather to Dumbo, giving him the confidence to fly to safety. The audience is astounded and word of his talent begins to spread. V. A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), the wealthy owner of a bohemian amusement park called Dreamland in New York City, approaches Medici and proposes a collaboration; Medici becomes Vandevere's business partner and the Medici Brothers' Circus' troupe would be permanently employed to perform at Dreamland, solving their financial problems.
