When the live-action re-boot of Dumbo premiered on Monday evening, the circus came to town – literally.
On the evening of March 11, the fifth floor of the Dolby Theatre was transformed. Aerial dancers took flight in hoops above and jugglers on stilts began to perform as bells chimed from the carnival games and the smell of hot dogs and popcorn filled the air. The circus had come to town.
But this was no ordinary circus, for this troupe of carnival characters accompanied Disney’s all-new, live-action Dumbo to town.
Last night we were thrilled to be on hand for the world premiere of Tim Burton’s live-action take on the 1941 classic Dumbo. While underneath the tented ceiling, we spoke with many of the film’s talented actors and filmmakers, who shared these behind-the-scenes details.
Be sure to check out ALL of the smart-phone style interviews over at the story. But also check out these sit-down interviews from the Dumbo press junket (careful, mild spoilers):
