Dumbo revolves around a circus family that find themselves demoted to be the elephant keepers. When baby Jumbo is born with huge ears, the world mocks him and calls him Dumbo until the kids discover that Dumbo can use his ears to fly.

Dumbo is another Disney live action film, but it isn’t necessarily a remake. The film diverges from the original film pretty early on in the film though it does keep some of the same elements.

LEGO Movie 2 is the sequel to the LEGO Movie which now finds Emmett (Chris Pratt) and his friends living in a dystopian, apocalyptic world as the boy’s sister is now allowed to play with LEGO’S and takes over. Once Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) and his friends are taken, it is up to Emmet to save them, but what he doesn’t know is that he may end up hurting his friends more than helping them.

LEGO Movie 2 is a fun, enjoyable, family film. However, it’s not as smart or inventive as it’s predecessor. The voice cast is great again in their roles, I enjoyed Chris Pratt in his other role as Rex Dangervest and Tiffany Haddish as the Queen. I was also surprised about how much I enjoyed some of the original songs in the film, especially the end credits song.

Incredibles 2 picks up immediately after its predecessor, with the Parr family fighting crime. Superheroes are still illegal though, so in an effort to legalize superheroes, Elastigirl is now in the spotlight leaving Mr. Incredible to stay home with his kids, Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack, who are all going through some sort of trouble.

It took 14 years for everyone to get Incredibles 2 and its a worthy sequel. The animation is beautiful as always when it comes to Pixar. And I was very impressed with a lot of action sequences involving Elastigirl. Kudos to director Brad Bird for still coming up with inventive ways to showcase superpowers.
