This Disney movie is about a baby elephant who has really big ears and gets made fun of for it. His real name is Jumbo Jr., but he’s in the circus and gets cruelly renamed Dumbo.
He gets separated from his mom, which is heartbreaking to watch. This happens because she is angry that her baby is being mocked and laughed at, so she acts out and they think that she’s gone mad.
Dumbo discovers that he can fly with his big ears, which makes him the star of the circus show. He flies using a magic feather, but his positive thinking and perseverance is really what helps the most.
The circus is owned by Max Medici and it is really struggling until Dumbo the flying elephant wows the crowds.
Dumbo is obviously the main character. Some other characters in the movie are his mom Mrs. Jumbo, Timothy Q. Mouse, Casey Jr., Jim Crow, and Mr. Stork.

The story of Dumbo is somewhat based on a real elephant named Jumbo who was an African Bush elephant in Sudan. His mother was killed by poachers and he was sold to an Italian animal dealer named Lorenzo Casanova.
In the cartoon movie Mrs. Jumbo (Dumbo’s mom) is taken away in a train cart and we don’t see her again. In the 2019 movie Dumbo is reunited with his mom and they are released from the circus and go off into the wild together.
