Get Ready for Disney’s Live Action Dumbo by Watching the Original

When it comes to Disney movies, 2019 is a year like no other. I don’t know that there has ever been a year where I was this excited for every. single. movie. slated to release in a 12 month period.

March delivers the first two (out of 10 this year) and they are Captain Marvel and Dumbo. And while, y’all KNOW we love some Marvel in this house, I need to focus on my favorite big-eared elephant for a minute.

Update: Dumbo is here and so is my Dumbo Movie Parent Guide. Check it out!

My affiliate links are below, which means I may earn money from purchases made.

I love Dumbo. This is well-documented.

But, my kids have never seen the original movie. They have been on the attraction and know a little bit about the story, but we haven’t all watched it together as a family.

That ends now! I bought a copy of the original Dumbo on Blu-Ray and DVD and decided to share the love. So two copies made it into my cart and I’m giving one of them to one of you!

But before I do that, you have to see these new posters. Like I am legit trying to figure out where the circus room will be in my house so I can hang them up. I’m obsessed with those circus tent stripes.

Character Posters for Disney’s Dumbo

While the internet was abuzz with the 2019 Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures slate yesterday (which is amazing and I can’t say that enough and you can read all about it on my girl Patty’s blog), Disney quietly slipped these fantastic new Dumbo posters into your feed. I want them all.

And I should say that I’m not one to get super hyped for a poster, but come on. Come on!


There are five new posters so be sure to click through so you can see them all! Of course Dumbo is my favorite. How did they get his eyes so perfect?

I'm so excited to actually see Dumbo the elephant himself. I can't wait for my son to experience this movie, he's never seen the original so he will be thrilled.
