With news of a Tim Burton ‘Live Action’ remake in the pipeline we thought it was the perfect time to revisit this true classic. With its gorgeous hand-crafted animation DUMBO is the most underrated of Disney’s back catalogue and is timelessly perfect with a genuinely cute hero and appealing storyline, Dumbo’s exactly right for younger children but not too milk-soppy for anyone over eight. 


A young circus elephant is born with comically large ears and given the cruel nickname Dumbo. One day at a show, he is taunted by a group of kids, inciting his mother into a rage that gets her locked up. After Dumbo's ears cause an accident that injures many of the other elephants, he is made to dress like a clown and perform dangerous stunts. Everything changes when Dumbo discovers that his enormous ears actually allow him to fly, and he astounds everyone at the circus with his new talent.
