Dumbo radiates joy in our latest Young Critics review

29 April 2019

Our Young Critic Megan Evans is transported into a world of excitement in Dumbo.

Adorable, funny and enchanting the live action version of Disney’s Dumbo is just as captivating as the original cartoon. If you are looking for a film that will transport you into a brightly coloured world of excitement and leave you with a huge smile on your face I highly recommend Dumbo. 

The plot follows a travelling circus who has recently bought their newest act, a tiny baby elephant: Dumbo. However Dumbo is no ordinary elephant, he has a miraculous secret talent- he can fly! Whilst this seems to be a stroke of luck for the struggling circus at first, things soon turn sour and we are soon catapulted into a series of exciting adventures. 

Of course it wouldn’t be a Disney film without adorable creatures and Dumbo is no exception. The CGI used on the film to create the animals is so magnificent and realistic that it is completely impossible not to let yourself get submerged in Dumbo’s story. 

Overall, Dumbo is a highly energetic and captivating film for the whole family with beautiful messages at its core. I guarantee that you will leave the cinema smiling at the joy this film radiates. 

Applications for the Young Critic's Circle will shortly be open again. More information will be released online and on social media soon.
