Dumbo Two-Disc 70th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: For the first time ever, in celebration of this landmark film's 70th anniversary, experience the daring adventures of the world's only flying elephant with a dazzling all-new digital restoration and brilliant Disney enhanced high definition theatre mix sound. The inspirational tale of Dumbo, the courageous baby elephant who uses his sensational ears to soar to fame with the help of his clever best friend Timothy Q. Mouse, will thrill and delight audiences of all ages. And now, the award-winning music and empowering messages about friendship and belief in yourself reach new heights in this must-have Blu-ray high-definition presentation of Walt Disney s animated classic Dumbo!

Review: Dumbo is one of the lesser known Disneys by the public at large.  It doesn't get the fanfare that a lot of the Princess-themed films and the late 1980s to early 1990s features like the Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Beauty & The Beast get.  The film is charming, fun and heartwarming and is certainly up to snuff with the other features in the Disney library.   This is the first time that you can own this classic on blu-ray high-definition.  The film looks amazing, which is saying something for a film that was released back in 1941!  The movie has a few cultural aspects that are a sign of the times, but mostly things that fly under the radar of children.  This film is a great family feature and can now be owned on the best possible format.
