Dumbo revolves around a circus family that find themselves demoted to be the elephant keepers. When baby Jumbo is born with huge ears, the world mocks him and calls him Dumbo until the kids discover that Dumbo can use his ears to fly.

Dumbo is another Disney live action film, but it isn’t necessarily a remake. The film diverges from the original film pretty early on in the film though it does keep some of the same elements.
