Disney fans first saw an elephant fly 75 years ago with the debut of Walt Disney’s animated classic Dumbo. The underdog (underelephant?) film is unforgettable––sensational songs (admit it, you’ve cried during “Baby Mine”), lovable characters, and of course, amazing animation.
In honor of Dumbo’s big-screen debut, Disney’s Animation Research Library has shared a few pieces of archival art from the 1941 film, just for D23 Members! Read on to marvel at pieces of clean-up animation, concept art, and story sketches that helped bring everyone’s favorite elephant to life.
