Dumbo Plane Wrap

All Aboard Spirit’s New “Dumbo” Plane

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.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
