Dumbo
Friday - Sunday June 28 - 30
Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton & Danny DeVito

 

In this live action reimaging of the classic animated tale, A young elephant, whose oversized ears enable him to fly, helps save a struggling circus.  But when the circus plans a new venture, Dumbo and his friends discover dark secrets beneath its shiny veneer.

 

Just like many of Disney's live action 'reboots' of their classic cartoon library, there are a number of nods to the original Dumbo from 1941. The production team created a full-scale version of the train Casey Jr. circus train from the original film. But it was given wear and tear to reflect the circus's aged and rundown condition in this film. The ring announcer introduces Dumbo with lyrics from "When I See an Elephant Fly," a song from the original. The musical theme itself appears at the end of the film.  When a clown congratulates a successful Dumbo with a bottle of champagne, but Medici shoos him away saying babies shouldn't have booze. This is a homage to Dumbo getting drunk in the original film, which set off the "Pink Elephants on Parade" song.

 

There are no talking animals in this adaptation; instead the story is revised to include more human characters, focusing more so on their perspective. However, the animals are homaged in the film:
  • One of the three silent white mice that Milly and Joe bring to Dumbo is dressed in a ringmaster outfit, which refers to Dumbo's sidekick Timothy Q Mouse
  • A stork perches itself outside of Mrs. Jumbo's train car around the time Dumbo is born, which refers to the stork who brought baby Dumbo to his mother.
  • Two elephants in Medici's troupe act hostile to Dumbo during his debut appearance, which refers to the antagonistic elephants.
  • The last time Dumbo flies he holds a black feather (all the other times the feather was white). This refers to Jim Crow, who gave Dumbo the magic feather.
