(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

With the results of my recent poll indicating that y’all wanna see me review Disney+ original live-action films on this blog, the first one I decided to tackle was the recent Artemis Fowl. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, this adaptation of the book series written by Eoin Colfer, was in development by Disney for years! It was originally intended for a theatrical release in 2019 which got postponed to 2020 which got downgraded to a Disney+ release. What did I think of the film? Read on to find out!

Dumbo (2019)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

When the Disney live-action remakes were being announced like hotcakes, one of the worst ideas we heard was the planned remake of Dumbo! Surely a film about a flying elephant didn’t need to be remade as live-action! And to top it all off, exactly how good could the story be if it was written by the same person who wrote Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Age of Extinction?

“Ever seen a dinobot fly?”

Audiences’ attitudes towards the film were apparent when the film grossed $353 million against a $170 million budget. Is the film really not that special? Or was I able to discover something that everyone else missed? Read on for my review of Tim Burton’s Dumbo!

This was the 2013 film that I was most anticipating to see! It seemed to be a film that would delight the heart of every Disney fanatic, the heart of every film historian, as well as the heart of every person who loved Mary Poppins. It would be the first theatrical film to feature an actor portraying Mr. Walt Disney himself. It was a film that would either become an instant classic or an instant flop!

Without further ado, let’s take a look at Saving Mr. Banks

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
