Not talking much but here things you didn’t notice or know about the movie DUMBO……

There was a swear jar on set. Whenever an actor cursed, they needed to put money in the jar. At the end of shooting, the total was given to charity. Allegedly, Colin Farrell was the worst offender and was responsible for the majority of the money.

Filmed entirely on a sound stage–not even the outdoor scenes were exterior shots.

Roshan Seth, who portrays snake charmer Premesh Singh, actually carries a live python around his neck.

Will Smith and Tom Hanks were approached for roles. Smith was interested but backed out to do Bad Boys for Life (2020) and would later sign on for Aladdin (2019). Hanks was courted for a villain role, but turned it down to film Greyhound (2020).

A code name for this movie was Big Ears. The circus train has the number 41 on the front – 1941 is the year the original Dumbo (1941) was released.

While Dumbo (1941) ended with Dumbo discovering his flying magic and becoming his circus’s star attraction, this adaptation focuses on what happens after Dumbo becomes a success.

At the end of the film, Dumbo and his mother return to the Asian jungles. In The Jungle Book (2016) the Asian/Indian elephants are described as being gods, which could explain Dumbo’s flying power.
