It’s exciting to see all of the Disney movies that I’ve always loved come to life with their live action remakes. I don’t think that I have ever wanted one more than DUMBO, because the story always had special meaning for me.
I fell in love with it a long time ago and as with any movie remake – I am always hesitant. But here’s why this one wrapped me in.
There isn’t a movie that he hasn’t made visually beautiful and made you want to be in it. So imagine my excitement when I woke up to the teaser trailer for the movie. It’s BEAUTIFUL.
Here’s the official plot –
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Dumbo opens on March 29, 2019.
