Guess since I was a dirty rumor-monger last month, I better own up here that that Star Fox: Grand Prix rumor is apparently a bust.

Hey, I don't think we ever had an article for the Dumbo movie (I'm posting here because this archive has a link to the trailer). However, turns out, that's okay, because here's a review from a non-furry for you guys!

I also like their logic of "You know what people coming to see Disney movies hate? Talking animals!"

Yes, that's right, Dumbo is not anthropomorphic! So skipping that one, then!

I guess that means with the Who Framed Roger Rabbit version of dumbo, the non-speaking one is now most canon.
