Produced by Walt Disney
Directed by Samuel Armstrong
Well, that was freaking adorable. Most people have probably seen this movie. I myself vaguely recall watching it as a child, which made it all the more special to watch it today.
This film is about a female elephant who really wants a baby. Finally the stork comes (I am no doctor but whaa?) and delivers a baby that is so cute you will explode into rainbows and sunshine. He has really big ears, though, so everyone makes fun of him. The characters are lovable, especially the mouse, but the songs are just okay. There is an obligatory trippy sequence after Dumbo accidentally sips a bit of champagne which features some cool animation.
Overall, it is definitely worth a revisit if you have seen it already.
The only title character in Disney that never speaks.
The racism was pretty bad but it's Disney so that is pretty much expected.
One of the few Disney movies set in America.
Grossed more money than Pinocchio and Fantasia combined.
Walt Disney's favorite.
