Disney Era Analysis – Dumbo

As mentioned in a previous blog post, I’ll be writing analysis content on all 60+ Disney animated feature films and their film making eras.

The first era is the Golden Age, which ran from 1937 to 1942 and started with Disney’s debut animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. As mentioned in my previous blog post, the Golden Age is known for setting the now-famous features in Disney’s animated feature films – being based on fairy tales, taking well-known literature and turning it into a child-friendly film, movies about and from the perspective of anthropomorphic animals, exaggerated villains, musical moments, adventures, and comedic sidekicks.

So how did Dumbo measure up to these now-famous features and was it the right film to follow the Golden Age’s outlier film, Fantasia?
