Live Action Dumbo

I received an advanced copy of the Live Action Dumbo to facilitate this review, however, as always opinions are 100% my own.

Live Action Dumbo

Growing up Disney movies were a part of our everyday life and Dumbo was one of the ones that we watched most often. I loved the mom loved Dumbo just the way he was and done anything she could do to protect him. While I haven’t watched Dumbo in a really, really long time, I still have the VHS tape that we had as kids. (Yes, I realize just how old that makes me sound.) I even have the DVD around from when Liz was little.

Now we have added the new Live Action Dumbo to our movie collection and from the moment it started playing I was in love. No one can do a remake quite like Disney, I think that even Walt Disney himself would love it! I do get a little sad that the kids now days won’t grow up watching the circus performers and getting excited over the “train” coming to town. But with the magic and painted skies of Joplin, Missouri Dumbo will come to life for years to come.

I even shed a tear or two when they saw Dumbo’s eye for the first time, but the shower made me laugh out loud. But his momma came to his rescue, much like all parents do. But I don’t want to spoil it all for you, but I want to leave Jumbo or Dumbo you decide?

Jumbo or Dumbo you decide?
Extras explore how one of cinema’s most imaginative filmmakers and an award-winning
cast and crew collaborated with Disney to bring to life this beloved classic for the entire family

“Dumbo,” the grand live-action adventure from Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, which expanded on the beloved animated classic and sent spirits soaring, prepares for a landing on June 25. Disney invites fans to fall in love again with this heartfelt story, in which differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight, when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD,  Blu-ray™ and DVD — with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, Easter eggs and bloopers.

Stunning extras will transport viewers to the set of “Dumbo,” where cast members Danny DeVito (circus owner Max Medici), Michael Keaton (opportunistic businessman V.A. Vandevere), Colin Farrell (war-veteran-turned-elephant-keeper Holt Farrier), Eva Green (stunning aerialist Colette Marchant), Nico Parker (Farrier’s daughter, Milly) and Finley Hobbins (Farrier’s son, Joe) share their personal stories of courage and character. Features explore how Disney’s timeless animated story was brought to life with an incredibly expressive, lovable, fully computer-generated baby elephant; the longtime collaboration of Burton, production designer Rick Heinrichs and costume designer Colleen Atwood, which resulted in jaw-dropping sets and costumes; and the creation of the visually colossal Dreamland parade sequence. Also included are nine deleted scenes, hidden and not-so-hidden Easter eggs, bloopers and a special performance of “Baby Mine” by Arcade Fire.

In “Dumbo,” struggling circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive but sinister entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, spectacular, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.

“Dumbo” will be released in several different formats, giving families the flexibility to watch it on a variety of devices. Viewers can watch the film in Digital 4K UHD, HD and SD, and bring home a physical copy of the film as the 4K Ultra HD Edition (4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital Code), Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Code) and a single DVD.
