If you haven’t had a chance to see the newly-released, 70th Anniversary Edition of the Disney classic, Dumbo, be sure to pick it up as soon as you can for a movie experience you can enjoy with your friends and family. Whether you’re four, fourteen or forty-five, Dumbo will charm you.
Dumbo is the inspirational tale of a courageous baby elephant who discovers what makes him different also makes him special – his ears. Eventually, they even bring him fame as the world’s only flying elephant! Dumbo will prove to you that if you just believe in yourself, anything is possible! And, it always helps if you have a friend to support you along the way, as Dumbo does in Timothy Q. Mouse.
The Academy-Award winning music including “When I See an Elephant Fly” sung by a chorus of hip crows who befriend Dumbo and Timothy, will have you singing for days. And the haunting lullaby, “Baby Mine,” will make you tear up just like audiences have for 70 years at one of the most heart-breaking scenes in the movie between Dumbo and his mama, Mrs. Jumbo.
The 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD includes bonus features including Taking Flight: The Making of Dumbo, games, animated shorts and much more!
