‘Dumbo’ is fun and fancy free

The movie is an example of Disney making for the lesser animation quality when compared to its two predecessors by giving audiences something fresh. The character designs and behaviours go above and beyond the call of duty in this case. Dumbo would never ended up where he does without deformed ears, a mother that loses her cool in a fit of psychosis, the help of a benevolent money seeking mouse, a night of drunken stupor and the defiance of racially stereotypical crows. Anybody claiming that that is exactly what they expect out of Disney animated family entertainment is out of their right minds.
