Dumbo (2019) // Film Review

★★★★ Visionary director Tim Burton has really made the animated Disney classic his own, which results in a dark, whimsical and heartfelt story. We’re living in the day and age where every Disney movie appears to get a live action remake. In the increasingly long list of remakes, including Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016)…
