I knew Dumbo had been around for a long time, but had no idea it had been 70 years. I remember seeing it in a theater when I was young and assumed it had been new at that time, but that was nowhere near 70 years ago. Dumbo is definitely a classic.
The picture and sound quality of both the DVD and Blu-ray versions is amazing. It’s a big improvement over the special collector’s edition VHS that I got years ago. The technology and skills that were needed to restore this film are quite impressive.
Dumbo is rated G, but I was a sensitive kid and some of it was too intense for me when I was little. I really liked the happy parts of the movie, but there are sad and scary parts.
It’s fun to see the movie again and all the bonus features are definitely a plus. There are different features on the DVD disc and the Blu-ray. I like the extras on the DVD that show the history of the film and the Dumbo ride at Disneyland. the Blu-ray has some fun interactive games and some animated shorts.
Dumbo is fun for kids to experience for the first time and it’s a fun walk down memory lane for adults who grew up with Dumbo!
