Another circus film! YAY!
I don’t know about you, but we’re SUPER EXCITED about what Tim Burton has to offer with his live action remake of the Disney classic, “Dumbo”.
Not only is there a super cute baby elephant with huge ears who can fly using magic, who’s story is one of triumph and courage despite his troubles, bullying, and size, but also the production have insisted upon using some of the finest real-life circus performers from across the globe. One of whom is our friend, Josh Brown, who you’ll see flipping off a trapeze, as well as super talented dancers!
We think this is great, as it will add a real amount of genuine talent, direct from the ground of circus, that only really exists in the circus! Unlike “The Greatest Showman” where we were slightly disappointed to see far too much CGI where real circus performers could have added the talent they’ve trained so hard to perfect.
I think this movie will really embody what the circus is about, when you see fire-performers actually breathing fire, and genuine clown acts, I just don’t think that can be faked. A lot of credit has to go to the Circus Choreographer, a Hungarian man by the name of Kristian Kristoff, known in the industry as “Gentleman Juggler” who brings 30 years of talent as well as multiple Guinness World Records, we are all excited to see how its portrayed!
“And now, I present to you the worlds smallest little elephant, who will spring form the springboard in one spring to the top of the pyramid, waving his little flag for the grand climax, Ladies and Gentleman, I give you…… Dumbo!” – The Ringmasters Voice, Dumbo (1941)
