Elephants are returning to the big top in 2017, but it’s not quite what you’d expect.

The team at Significant Object, who created the animals in the stage production of War Horse, have created massive puppet elephants to perform in a circus show!

The puppets will be featured in ‘Circus 1903,’ which puts a spin on the traditional circus. ‘Circus 1903’ will start in February 2017 in Los Angeles before touring nationwide.
