Are you ready to believe—again—that an elephant can fly? A new version of “Dumbo” is hitting theaters, nearly 80 years after the original. It’s likable, but it also comes from that new Disney attraction—Remake Mountain.
Director Tim Burton, who began his career working for the Disney Studios, is now helming this new version of their 1941 classic “Dumbo.”
Burton doesn’t always succeed at re-makes. But he’s comfortable recreating America in 1919, when fleabag circuses rattled around on the rails from one mid-sized city and hamlet to another.
