Warning: This post contains spoilers for both the 1941 and 2019 versions of Dumbo.

There’s a lot of creative liberty taken in Tim Burton’s 2019 remake of the beloved 1941 Walt Disney movie Dumbo. The timeline, characters, plot points, climax, resolution: almost everything is different in the 2019 adaptation Dumbo. That’s not to say that Burton’s rendition doesn’t stay faithful to its source in certain ways. Fans of the original will recognize the baby elephant’s big ears, his ability to fly, the nastiness of those who mock him and the love shared between him and his mother.

But still, fans of the 1941 film may be surprised to find favorite moments removed. Fear not, though: there certainly are a fair share of homages to the Oscar-winning original in the new Disney picture.
