Why Tim Burton's Dumbo Won't be Just Another Disney Movie

Tim Burton is one such personality who is known for his fantasy films like ‘Alice In Wonderland’, ‘The Night Before Christmas’, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘Corpse Bride’, etc. His new fantasy film is all set to hit theatres this Friday, based on the life of a circus artist who has to look after Dumbo, an elephant with oversized ears. The film Dumbo is not a usual film but a unique concept directed by the legendary film maker Tim Burton. Let’s have a look why Dumbo is not just another Disney fantasy film but a unique concept.

The original film was based on the story of Dumbo too who had abnormally large ears and was mistreated by other animals. His only friend, the mouse helps him discover his gifted talent to fly with the help of his huge ears.

Dumbo is the combination of both live action and animation wherein the baby elephant works really hard and takes flight! The film has Eva Green, Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, and many other actors working together to make it a big hit.

Tim Burton has given Dumbo the ‘Big Fish’ remake to a classic from Walt Disney himself from the year 1941. The film begins with the ending of the remake from 1966, picking up the story from decades ago.

Right after looking at its trailer that came out in June last year, people were talking about it and discussing how great and cute this little character is and how it’d drive the entire film. We believe that this film is going to be truly magical.

The latest version of the film we believe speaks more about Holt Ferrier who has come back from a War and is looking after the circus. His children discover that Dumbo can fly, and hence decide to invest some money on it to gain more profits.
