    Really don't know what to make of this one. I've always thought Dumbo was a case where the ride was more popular than the movie, so I have no clue whether or not this will be successful.

    New trailer.



    I think this actually looks pretty great. I'm sort of getting a "Big Fish" vibe from it, which for me, is perfect because that's my favorite Tim Burton film.

    That looks much better than I was expecting.

    I'm glad to see Tim Burton and Michael Keaton working together again.

    This just feels like a massive misstep by Disney.

    I enjoy the animated film (though it hasn't aged well), but the story is really small and intimate. It works because it's told from the perspective of Dumbo himself. Here, it's a "grander" story being told through the eyes of random circus children.

    At least they're doing something with Pink Elephants on Parade.

    So far, it's done nothing but print money for Disney. Why would they stop?

    I'm not saying I agree with it, but it makes complete sense as to why they continue to remake films. From a business stand point, it's a pretty easy decision.

    ^ You're stating the obvious. Sometimes it's best to let things be. Remakes never live up to the originals.

    I mean, I 100% agree with this, philosophically. But if they're going to keep remaking (and they are), then we should at least hope the movies are good.

    Jungle Book and Cinderella were both very well done. I especially liked Cinderella, it was understated and simple and Cate Blanchett was awesome and Lily James was a perfect cast as well. Hermoine as Belle, not so much. They won't live up to the originals because of the nostalgia and music.

    But here's the thing; it's not like they're replacing the originals. You can still watch Dumbo in all its glory and skip this one altogether.
    Or watch it, enjoy or hate it, and then go back to original Dumbo.
