Paramount is describing this film as a fun family adventure in the spirit of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory or Night at the Museum. I'm pretty sure animals weren't perpetually abused in either of those stories. Ringling is a documented animal abuser and has received the largest fines for animal abuse from the USDA.
Portraying them in a fun filled manner where the abuse should be a crime and will only expand on the myth that circus animals lead a safe, healthy, and happy life.
