Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, are you ready to celebrate? A Disney Legend for a New Generation Comes Home On Digital,4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Movies Anywhere June 25!

Disney’s fantasy live-action adventure directed by Tim Burton, the story follows circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito), who enlists former circus star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

This Dumb inspired Cheesecake Ball will be perfect for your family to enjoy while watching the movie or hosting a movie inspired circus party.
