DUMBO 2-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def & DVD Combo Pack

On September 20, Dumbo took flight for the first time with a premium restoration in stunning Blu-ray high definition featuring pristine 7.1 Digital Theater System High-Def Surround Sound, allowing fans to see more, hear more, interact more and share more of this timeless adventure about believing in yourself.

It had been YEARS since I watched Dumbo, so I was excited to see it again with my boys. (it was their first time)  I had forgotten how sad the movie was.  Seriously, saddest of sads.  I was crying like a baby.  The moral of the story is to believe in yourself despite the challenges life brings (or in Dumbo’s case, discrimination), and I think my children “got” the message.

The quality of the animation was fabulous for a 70 year-old movie.  The folks at Disney did a fantastic job transferring Dumbo to Blu-Ray and it is a nice addition to our Disney Blu Ray collection.
