Director Tim Burton lends his characteristically dark and whimsical touch to this live action revamp of Disney’s 1941 animated film of the same name. A young elephant with the powers of flight becomes a circus superstar with the help of a trapeze artist (Eva Green) and a caretaker (Colin Farrell). The latter is torn between his employer’s exploitative thirst for profits and his children’s desire to reunite Dumbo with his mother.~Augustine Chay

I ABSOLUTLY LOVE THIS MOVIE, IT'S GREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY AND BRINGS LIFE AND COLOR TO THE CHARACTERS AND PICTURE. YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH DUMBO ALL OVER AGAIN AND WILL WANT TO WATCH IT SEVERAL TIMES WITH ALL FAMILY MEMBERS OF ALL AGES.
The kids the family the adults who won it like Dumbo it’s a good movie love it
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Having ambition, even failed, is better than none
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
Yes the original is an old movie. 1941 was a long time ago. Doesn't matter, what it taps into is still as relevant emotionally and culturally now as it was in 1941. Let's see...
- Lonely and ostracized over differences. Still a thing...
- Stripped violently from mother (or family member) who loves you...uh...don't look to the southern US border in the last two years please
- diverse populations come together to celebrate differences and find strength in that gathering...thank goodness we do that still
- discover inner strength by embracing your difference as your salvation and learning that by being WHO you are will lead to a better life...oh yeah, that's still around
And that's the story of Dumbo. And then it gets updated and doubled in running time so we need lots more than what was in the original. And while that sounds like a bad thing, it really isn't. These Disney remakes are better when they try to do something different rather than just recreate the original.
So now Dumbo makes friends with kids rather than a mouse and crows. Of course the crows wouldn't make it (which just shows how people don't really understand the original story - the crows were the only folks BESIDES Disney's mother and Timothy Mouse who embraced Dumbo and they helped him find himself and his strength...and they were african-american. Those crows were NOT racist, even if they employed hollywood stereotypes of the time - wrong then and wrong now, sure...but the characters of the crows are some of the most caring and accepting and empathetic in the movie...quite a statement in 1941 about african americans vs other ethnicities...but I digress).
There's also a whole new plot about an evil circus. Go michael Keaton, lol.
The new stuff is mostly mixed and doesn't completely land as well as one would hope. The emotions from the original are basically there, although better and more focused in the original.
Dumbo is adorable and not Tim Burtonized so that's ok.
Did I like it? Absolutely. But I already loved Dumbo and getting to spend more time with him was always a good thing.
Shame this film didn't find its audience as its message of acceptance and finding inner strength is a good one.
