Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton star in director Tom Burton’s new live-action version of “Dumbo.”
It’s not exactly a flying elephant, but air travelers will soon get the chance to soar through the skies in the next best thing: A giant “Dumbo”-themed Spirit Airlines jet.
The carrier on Wednesday debuted a specially themed Airbus A321 that features a larger-than-life image of Disney’s Dumbo. The plane was wrapped with the Dumbo decal at Spirit’s maintenance hangar at Detroit Metro Airport.
Director Tim Burton’s upcoming live-action take on the 1941 Disney classic, “Dumbo,” stars Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Eva Green. It opens nationwide on March 29.
Spirit’s plane took off Wednesday from Metro Airport to Orlando International Airport.
Guests traveling between Detroit, Orlando, San Juan, Fort Lauderdale and Baltimore/Washington will have the chance to fly with “Dumbo” on its first three days of service.
The aircraft will then travel across the country for the next two months.
