Though the live-action retelling of classics The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast took over the box-office and generated hundreds of millions of dollars in receipts, there is still a lot of nostalgia and interest surrounding Disney’s four similar offerings hitting theaters in 2019.
First up on that list is Tim Burton’s Dumbo.
To build up anticipation for the films upcoming release, and offer fans another reason to discuss the movie that seems to have been almost discussed to death, Disney has partnered with Spirit Airlines to offer up the unique opportunity for fans to officially fly with Dumbo.
The plane, an Airbus A321, departs today from Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), heading towards sunny Orlando International Airport (MCO). Guests who are traveling between Detroit, Orlando, San Juan Fort Lauderdale, and Baltimore/Washington over the next three days will have the chance of flying with the big-eared elephant before he begins a two-month adventure, traveling the country in support of the film’s forthcoming release.
Directed by Burton, Dumbo stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin, Finley Hobbins, and Nicol Parker. Check out the time-lapse video below and be sure to check out the film when it hits theaters on March 29.
