Many vintage movie posters were created to promote this movie when it was first released. Many of these posters have a storybook quality. In many ways these vintage movie posters are unique because they were developed before the modern pop art movement arose, an art movement that influenced other Disney artwork. However, Dumbo illustrations are no less charming for their storybook atmosphere and embody many of the characteristics that most people associate with vintage animation illustrations.
The themes of Disney animation art are typically inspirational in nature and Dumbo art is no different. These works are not only aesthetically pleasing to younger viewers but they also encourage them to try their best and never give up on what they believe in. Like many Disney movies, Dumbo art is all about illustrating that the most powerful type of magic is within the viewer.
