Joe Farrier is the rambunctious young son of Holt Farrier who heartily embraces the circus life. He’d love nothing more than to have his own act — but his acrobatic abilities, juggling talent and just about every other imaginable circus skill are not quite up to standards. When Dumbo is born, however, Joe’s enthusiasm and pure heart seem to meet their match.


Finley Hobbins makes his feature film debut as Joe. “For my first audio on, I had to perform a scene with a fake Dumbo, which was actually casting director Susie Figgis’ dog, because we didn’t actually have a model of Dumbo,” says Hobbins. “Every few seconds the dog would jiggle around and we’d have a laugh. I had to do the scene where Dumbo is just siting around, feeling quite sad and lonely, so me and Nico go to comfort him.”

Hobbins says he’s enjoyed being among the circus performers. “I like the clowns, who are quite freaky and funny,” he says. “And the contortionists are amazing. I just think to myself, ‘Wow, what if I could do that?’”
