Dumbo

 (1941)

Dumbo Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Ostracized from the rest of the circus animals, poor Dumbo the elephant is separated from his mother, who is chained up in a separate cage after trying to defend her child. Only brash-but- lovable Timothy Mouse offers the hand of friendship to Dumbo, encouraging the pouty pachyderm to exploit his "different" qualities for fame and fortune.

For more about Dumbo and the Dumbo Blu-ray release, see Dumbo Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sterling Holloway, Edward S. Brophy, Herman Bing, Verna Felton, Cliff Edwards, Billy Bletcher
Directors: Samuel Armstrong, Norman Ferguson, Wilfred Jackson, Jack Kinney, Bill Roberts, Ben Sharpsteen

Dumbo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

If you were among those who imported Dumbo, you already know what to expect from Disney's terrific 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer which, to my eyes, is identical to the one that's been making the rounds overseas for the better part of a year-and-a-half. Rather than tamper with the endearing qualities of Golden Age animation, Disney has meticulously restored the film to its former glory and, in the process, rendered previous home video releases wholly unnecessary. Colors aren't overbearing; they're delicate, painterly and, above all, beautiful. Black levels aren't overwhelming; instead they're rich but not unyielding, inky but naturally so. Contrast isn't stark; it's perfectly balanced, consistent and wonderfully filmic. And detail? Every crisp line, brush stroke, wind-swept leaf, frighteningly fluid pink elephant, and expressive eye, ear and mouth have been preserved, restored and given the studio's patented, frame-by-gorgeous-frame high definition polish. Grain has been removed, yes, but unlike other, more insidious uses of DNR, Disney's has simply restored the film's original cel-painted purity without diminishing the artists and animators' intentions in any way. Moreover, there isn't any significant artifacting, banding, aliasing or, really, any other eyesore that isn't inherent to the source or animation. Ever-so-slight ringing caught my eye on occasion, but whether or not it was a product of judicious edge enhancement was never entirely clear. Even then, it's such a minor anomaly that it hardly qualifies as an issue. Dumbo takes its place beside Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi and stands as a testament to Disney's ongoing devotion to its most treasured classics.


Dumbo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's domestic Blu-ray release features the same solid DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track as its 2010 Latin America and United Kingdom counterparts. However, it also features a restored 320kbps Original Mono track, which is sure to delight purists with all but its lossy nature. Not that the 7.1 remix drastically alters the Dumbo soundscape. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout while retaining the tone and tenor of the various actors' voicework, and effects haven't been pumped up, inflated or given anything other than the lossless support they deserve. The rear speakers are rather passive -- save a raging storm here, a flurry of horns there -- but they expand the soundfield with ease and deliver a reasonably immersive catalog experience. The LFE channel doesn't lumber across the floor either, even though it exudes authority and confidence when called upon. If anything, the music and songs have the unmistakably thin presence and pinched personality of a '40s soundtrack and score, not that anything short of time travel and a modern recording studio could change that. All in all, I seriously doubt Dumbo could sound much better than it does here. Adjust your expectations accordingly and enjoy.
