Dumbo Directed by Tim Burton
Serious matters of the economy or of mental and physical autonomy do not disappear when reflected through the prism of a child’s perspective. Beneath the carnival trappings and the ruckus of moving trains and screaming crowds, Dumbo himself proves the damage that occurs when children’s rights are violated for the sake of generating capital; there is little evident need for additional decoration.

Whereas humans barely feature in the 1941 version, this one is full of them, and short on things for them to do. The old Dumbo was shunned by his fellow elephants – here was a piercing indictment of how we mistreat our own misfits. In the remake, there are no elephants to mock him, and the film doubles down instead on a message that was always implicit in the story: exploiting animals is bad.

Burton’s version isn’t only one of the most conventional works of his career, it’s also a much safer, blander film than the original.
