After 78 years, Disney’s Dumbo is flying into theaters once again! In this new retelling of a Disney classic a little elephant named Dumbo helps out a struggling circus owner through his ability to fly. But Dumbo becomes the joke of the town because of his over sized ears. On the first day that he was preforming in the circus, he had peanuts thrown at him. But once Holt, the animal caretaker and war veteran, and his children find out that Dumbo has the ability to fly everything changes for him and the whole circus. Dumbo pulls in two recruiters, V.A. Vandevere and Eva Green, to help the circus recover after losing  a lot of money with small audiences and low ticket sales.

Tim Burton directs this new adaptation, and brings with him producers Ehren Kruger, Justin Springer, Derek Frey, and Katterli Frauenfelder. With a star studded cast, Eva Green as Collet, Collin Farell as Holt, Danny DeVito as Max Medici, and Michael Keaton as V.A. Vandevere, audiences are sure to appreciate the new look at the old classic. The new movie was released on March 29, 2019, and has gotten 49 percent on rotten tomatoes.

I personally loved this new Dumbo movie. In my opinion the actors that they chose did an outstanding job. They also had a cameo from Micheal Buffer and he was the announcer for the circus. I think that was very clever because he is the announce for all the UFC fights and that job fit for him perfectly. But other then that Disney is doing an impressive job at making all the old animated movies into live action films  and they are coming out better and better every time. But be prepared to bring a box of tissues because is was a very sad movie.
