Arte you as excited as we are about the new Dumbo? OMG I've been seeing the trailer for close to a year and have been waiting! That and also the live action Lion King! Well, on Tuesday my son Reed and I were able to go to the press screening of it. Here's what I wish I would have known going into it as a mom and an animal lover...the brutal animal cruelty and abuse that you mildly see in the animated version translate very severe and harsh and horrific when it looks real. It was a lot to handle....so much so I almost wanted to leave. I had to keep reminding myself that it is a Tim Burton film and so it's going to be a little whacked. I also was sure that I would be emotional and tear up...but I didn't. I was waiting for that pulling on your heart strings moment, but all I got was feeling sorta sad and icky. Ity was weird. I really wished someone other than Tim Burton would have done it because I think the harsh story of Dumbo was loved so much because Disney gave it a careful gentle touch. I wanted to love it so bad. It was entertaining but not my favorite.
