Dumbo 2 Story
In the year 1919, an equestrian performer named Holt Farrier works at the Medici Brothers’ Circus, owned by Max Medici. The circus is going through financial problems, forcing Medici to sell his stable of horses, since their caretaker, Annie ( Holt’s wife ) died due to the Spanish flu outbreak. Medici hires Holt to take care of the circus’ pregnant elephant named Mother Ella Jumbo. She soon gives birth to a calf who has exceptionally large ears, which prompts Medici to order Holt to hide its ears, fearing how the visitors will react to such a strange deformity. However, the calf ends up accidentally revealing its ears during a performance in Missouri. The crowd begins jeering and making fun of the calf and names it Dumbo. The calf’s mother is shocked and enraged at the crowd’s behavior and runs into the ring causing enormous damage which ends up killing a circus handler. This results in Medici selling Mrs. Jumbo. Holt’s children, Joe and Milly, comfort Dumbo and soon realize that Dumbo can fly by flapping his ears.
