The Disney live-action remakes have been pretty hit or miss for me. I loved Jungle Book, and Cinderella. Beauty and the Beast? I’ll stick with the cartoon, thanks. But Dumbo was a strange choice for me. If you’ve re-watched it lately, not only is it heart-wrenching, there’s no humans in it.
But they’ve got Tim Burton directing, who’s the king of weird. They’re also adding more human characters at the circus. From what I’ve seen from both trailers reminds me a lot of his movie Big Fish, which I loved. It also looks a lot more hopeful and inspiring than sad. What do you think? Are you excited for the new Dumbo next year?
