There was a time when it was enough to tell Dumbo that it would begin watering in the eyes on me. In the Disney heartthrob from 1941 bullied the little adorable elefantungen for their flapping ears. When his loving mother trying to protect him from the bullies turned her into a igenspikad cirkusvagn.
considering that the director is Tim burton's heart always bultat a little extra for the outsiders, Willy Wonka and Edward Scissorhands, it feels right of course that it was he who would make the remake of the classic.
In burton's ”Dumbo” (that blend animated elements with spelscener), the story begins with the antiquated cirkussällskapet the Brothers Medici. The director (Danny DeVito) has just invested in a pregnant elefanthona which he hopes will give birth to his next cash cow.
it turns out that the kid that comes out has huge ears in the form of wilting lettuce leaves, and after a humiliating debut dressed up to jättebebis becomes Dumbo vented from the incentive. When cirkusbarnen Joe and Milly discover that Dumbo can fly is turned, however, immediately fiasco into a success. Then, when the rumor about the flying elephant reaches of the successful V A Vandevere (Michael Keaton), owner of the amusement park Dreamland, he offers to buy the entire circus.”Dumbo”, the elephant that can fly.

in 2019, the world has suffered of a certain cirkusskam when it is about to force animals to perform tricks before an audience. The new version relates, therefore, the right freely to model and spend a lot more focus on the goings-on than that of animals, for example, devoted to the strange little time on the fact that Dumbo separated from his mother. Which is a shame because any human being can identify with the vulnerable little hårdhudingen Dumbos fate and challenges.
as vivid in his game as the actors all around are mechanical. Not to mention the two subdued, gravallvarliga the children, and Michael Keaton makes a replay on the ”Beetlejuice” fixed on beta-blockers. It is really just cirkusmiljöerna the glimra to sometimes. As soon as trumvirveln is heard and the curtain goes up, we get us a hefty dose of Burtonmagi. A visually evocative såpbubble number, with dancing pink elephants, is a nice nod to the original famous delirium-the scene.
If the original version was about the courage to be yourself and turn their words benefits is Tim burton's version of the importance of not selling out. Danny DeVitos character runs a small tivoli and loses himself when he is gobbled up by the big soulless Dreamlandkonsortiet.
It is almost as if you can hear the director's inner monologue. For Burton may still be a drömmakare but with the ”Dumbo’ it unfortunately becomes painfully clear that his waywardness is ground down by the commercial Disney-the mill so that no elephants longer flies.
