Disney has been/is putting out a lot of remakes of their original animated features. The “kick-off”, so to speak, would be the live action ‘Cinderella’ movie that came out back in 2015. Then we got the incredible ‘Jungle Book’ adaptation, with visuals that touched the “Uncanny Valley”, followed by ‘Beauty & The Beast’. Disney still has plans to release a live action ‘Aladdin’ in the next year or two and this morning we got our first look at TIM BURTON’s verion of ‘Dumbo’.
That looks like a dumbo movie. Almost beat for beat like the original. I guess the other live action adaptations did the same thing, but I feel like everything I will get out of this movie, I already got out of the original film from 1941. I don’t know if I’ll be able to have the magic of a flying elephant captured in real life, like it was in the OG animated version without it being cheesy. Time will tell.
Dumbo releases on March 29, 2019
