I received Dumbo on Blu-ray for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Dumbo, the grand live-action adventure from Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, which expanded on the beloved animated classic and sent spirits soaring, prepares for a landing on June 25. Fall in love again with this heartfelt story when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD - with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, bloopers and more!
In “Dumbo,” struggling circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive but sinister entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, spectacular, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.

We are definitely ready for summer and for some showings of Dumbo in our house.
Dumbo will be released in several different formats, giving families the flexibility to watch it on a variety of devices. Viewers can watch the film in Digital 4K UHD, HD and SD, and bring home a physical copy of the film as the 4K Ultra HD Edition (4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital Code), Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Code) and a single DVD. My girls saw Dumbo in theaters and they were thrilled to be able to watch it here at home. It is a heartfelt movie that can forever live in your heart! We watched it when afternoon thunderstorms rushed us out of the pool. I especially enjoyed the bonus features for this movie including the circus spectacular as you get to hear directly from the cast themselves. This is a beautifully done movie that truly brings the old animated version into a new light for a new generation.
