Tim Burton’s “Dumbo” is Coming!

I’ve always loved Tim Burton’s work for his dark, twisted, and even macabre take on things.  When Burton joins with Disney, we tend to get a less saccharine and darker vision of a great story with surreal, frequently animal elements, and so Tim Burton’s upcoming 2019 version of the Disney classic Dumbo promises to be a real treat.

We had last seen Dumbo as a two dimensional cartoon image in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and his upcoming outing will be as a far more realistic CGI elephant that is flawlessly integrated with a stellar live-action cast that includes such diverse talent as Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito.  And yes, the hauntingly sad lullaby Baby Mine from the 1940’s classic will be incorporated, so get those tissues ready for when mother elephant is chained up and separated from her baby…

The flying baby elephant with the endearingly enormous ears will be soaring across a big top circus tent in your neighborhood around March 2019.  He works for peanuts, after all…

    I probably won’t be going to see this version. I wasn’t too thrilled with his live-action “reimaginings” of ALICE IN WONDERLAND. And I was ambivalent, at best, regarding the live-action remake of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

    To paraphrase Neve Campbell (channeling the late, great Wes Craven) in SCREAM 4: “Don’t mess with the originals!”

      I’m willing to give this “Dumbo” a try, but hopefully we’ll never see CGI dwarves in a remake of “Snow White.” That could be politically incorrect to say nothing of creepy…
