Yep, another Disney animated classic going live-action. Has Disney just abandoned what made Disney? Okay, let’s see it.
Is anybody else NOT getting a Dumbo vibe from this movie? What’s it about?
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. 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.
So…is Dreamland going to be a stand-in for the Disney parks? Has Disney really lost their way that much? Well, they put Tim Burton on yet another Disney live-actioned not-stalgia production so I’m going to say yes. Apparently we learned nothing from Alice In Wonderland did we Disney?
