Actor Colin Farrell is no stranger to blockbuster movies and this Friday (March 29th) the Dubliner flies back onto our screens in Disney's latest live-action release Dumbo.

The 42-year-old stars as Holt Farrier, a former circus performer and wounded soldier who is asked to care for a baby elephant when circus owner Max Medici is finding things difficult.

On discovering the calf's unusually large ears allow him to fly, their fortunes begin to change - in every aspect.

Here's a taste of what to expect:

Speaking on Today FM's Dermot and Dave, Colin chats about his admiration for director Tim Burton and tells us why this family fantasy adventure has been so refreshing:

the whole process of doing this film had a sweetness that majority of the work I've been involved in had been missing

In what is a hopeful tale about inclusion and the celebration of difference, Farrell feels it conveys, "the belief in the power of good". And let's face it, we all need a drop of that in today's day and age.

After the huge success of Disney's other recent live-action releases (The Lion King, The Jungle Book & Aladdin), and with such a stellar cast (Michael Keaton, Eva Green & Danny DeVito - to name a few) we've no doubt Dumbo will be right up there with the best of them.

Dermot and Dave caught up with Castlenock's finest in Dublin over the weekend as he walked the red carpet at the Light House Cinema , Smithfield for the Irish Premiere of the movie.
