    Just got the info from Rotten Tomatoes. When I first heard the news, my first thought was "WHAT?!?! This is ridiculous, Walt Disney once again rolls in his grave!!!" Then I realized that there was a remake of 101 Dalmatians in 1997 that turned out to be really good. Who knows? Maybe this will be pretty good too.

      It was released in 1996.

      Anyway, I look forward to this.

            I dunno this idea sounded pretty stupid. Out of all the
            movies in the animated canon that they could of adapted
            why did they chose Dumbo of all things?

              Speaking of live action Disney characters, how was Maleficent?

                I've never seen Maleficent, but I'm not a fan of Angelina Jolie so I don't plan to see it anytime soon.

                  Meh, this Dumbo shit. If they are going to start tackling old 40's Disney toons I hope they leave The Three Caballeros alone. Panchito Pistolas ftw.

                    Angelina Jolie was great everything else including the story was horrible, my opinion.

                      As long as were talking about live action Disney remakes, I might as well bring this up:

                        I saw that teaser. Seems to me they're wanting to make the story closer to the fairy tale, despite using the names of the characters used in the 1950 movie. This and Dumbo (if it ever makes it out of the development stage) are the only remakes from Disney I want to see, especially since the latter might have that Frozen Fever short attached to it.

                          I wonder how they will handle the crows, will they still be shuckin' and jivin'? Will they take them out entirely? Change them to pigeons or some other kind of bird? Give them different dialect/accent?

                          Maybe they do Song of the South next.

                            The live-action 101 Dalmatians film from 1996 was very well done. They did a good job making that one.

                              Sorry for the bump, but I found out that Tim Burton will be directing the new Dumbo.

                              Watching his take on Alice on Wonderland was hard on the eyes, so I wonder what this will be like.

                                For somebody who works in a theater, I saw bits and pieces of both Maleficent and Cinderella. Both look good . Cinderella's big draw would have to be the Frozen Fever short before the film.

                                  Let's hope they use a Dumbo pupept like the one used in the 1983 TV series: "Dumbo's Circus".

                                    Now you know they're not going to do that.
