A film based on the 1941 animated classic we all know and love, Dumbo is to premiere in 2019. The movie tells the story of a clumsy young circus elephant with overly large ears – earning him the name of Dumbo. The new movie is directed by Tim Burton and Hollywood actor Colin Farrell, with Michael Keaton, Sharon Rooney and Danny DeVito are starring.
Mongolia has certainly come to Hollywood. In recent years an increasing number of Mongolian actors have been appearing in top movies. Now, contortionists from the Centre for Development of the Mongolian Circus are making roles for the Dumbo film. According to N.Urangoo, a teacher at the circus centre, this is the very first time Mongolian contortionists are cooperating with Hollywood.
Currently, Mongolian contortionists are starring in a concert tour in Mexico.
