Tim Burton’s new live-action Dumbo has just soared into theaters and is on it’s way to becoming Disney’s newest masterpiece.

Read on for our spoiler-free review.

The visually stunning handcrafted sets matched with the incredible CGI created a timeless setting for a family heartwarming story. There are nostalgic hints at the 1941 animated version throughout this retelling that make this film great for all ages. Tim Burton’s reimagining of Dumbo is truly breathtaking and I am a HUGE Tim Burton fan!

All the actors gave from Michael Keaton to Danny DeVito gave outstanding performances. The kids were a joy to watch, especially when interacting with Dumbo.

Colleen Atwood made sure the costumes while classic matched the grandeur of the big top.

From Dumbo taking flight, to the real connections we feel with these new characters, every moment is paired with the mesmerizing score of the incredible Danny Elfman. Elfman has taken familiar melodies that we know and love and has made them even more magnificent for the big screen.


Dumbo leaves us with a great heartfelt message, not too weepy like the original and is the family film to watch this spring, overall what a magical film!
