Based on the children’s novel by K.A. Applegate, inspired by the true story of Ivan the gorilla, The One and Only Ivan debuted on Disney+ on August 21, 2020. Originally planned for a theatrical release, this Thea Sharrock-directed film went straight to streaming, most likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What do I think of the film? Read on to find out!

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!
