Disappointed, but that’s just me...
Being a huge Disney buff, I was looking forward to the Dumbo remake from the moment I found out that it was in production. The original 1941 Dumbo was never one of my favorite Disney movies as a child as it would always scare me, but I began to warm up to it as I got older.
After watching the remake, I started to appreciate the original movie a lot more.
Disney’s recent remakes/sequels of their classic films (most notably Mary Poppins Returns) have failed to impress me, but that might just be due to me getting older. The acting was honestly quite bleak (besides Danny DeVito——God, I love that man) and it was hard for me to stay interested in whatever was happening on screen. I didn’t cry (which is extremely rare for me). Nothing too, disturbing or violent—depends on the child, of course.
Overall, personally disappointed, though children are sure to enjoy it.
