According to IMDB’s summary of the movie, Farrell’s character is hired by DeVito to care for Dumbo. But once Farrell’s on-screen children find out that Dumbo can soar, an entrepreneur played by Keaton and an aerial artist played by Green plot to make Dumbo a star.

“Dumbo” is scheduled to hit the big screen on March 29, 2019. It is one of a group of live action adaptations of classic Disney animated films including the upcoming films -- “The Lion King,” starring Beyonce and Donald Glover, “Aladdin” and “Mulan,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
