We Asked Our Readers If Disney's 'Dumbo' Reboot Was Worth Seeing, Here's What They Said

The Tim Burton film raked in $45 million USD in the United States.

This weekend Disney‘s Dumbo reboot splashed into theaters following the release of a graphic-filled Coach collection which featured handbags, accessories and more. The film, which was directed by Tim Burton, who is known for creating dark, imaginative worlds such as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland. The original movie hit theaters in 1941, among millennials who grew up in the ’90s. To them the animation is what makes it a classic, but Disney has been toying with a rollout of live movies including Aladdin and Lion King.

The Dumbo live-action remake raked in in $45 million USD in ticket sales in the United States, as reported by The New York Times. Despite it becoming the number one film this weekend, it was still met with criticism from The Verge and NPR for being unmemorable. The feature which runs for almost two hours stars emerging actress Nico Parker, alongside Finley Hobbins, Eva Green, Danny DeVito and Colin Farrell. Both aforementioned publications, shared that the CGI universe Burton created wasn’t executed well and when paired with the key actors and actresses, it came across as strange.

Recently we asked our readers on our Instagram Stories if the 2019 movie lived up the original. Keep reading below for the best responses we received.
