Taking Flight


Get ready to soar with Dumbo. The new movie is a remake of the classic animated film from 1941. It’s about a young circus elephant who is teased for his big ears. Dumbo is separated from his mother, and he becomes determined to find her.

"The movie is really sweet," NICO PARKER (pictured, center), 14, told TFK. She plays Milly Farrier, a girl who loves science. Milly is misunderstood by her father, her brother, and the rest of the circus troupe. But her science experiments lead Dumbo to a big discovery: He can use his ears to fly. And that’s a big help in his search for his mother. "The movie is about Dumbo learning to see his ears as a gift," Nico says. Dumbo flies into theaters on March 29.
