Bambi Retains its Alluring Qualities after 75 Years

GameStop, Inc.

Celebrating its Diamond Anniversary, Disney’s Bambi is the ultimate achievement in hand drawn animation and the study of animal movement to animate this big eyed fawn on his journey into becoming a majestic stag.

As he grows with his friends Thumper, Flower and the rest, Bambi learns about life in the forest as well as tragedy when…don’t make me start crying.

What makes this Diamond Anniversary, Signature Collection worth the purchase are the bonus features. A fully remastered Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon from 1928 called Africa Before Dark, follow’s Mickey Mouse’s predecessor on safari as he hunts lions, bunnies and other creatures of the jungle. The cartoon looks so fresh in fact, that you assume Disney recreated the whole thing from scratch using modern technology.

A slight disappointment, or maybe a bad choice of titling are the “Deleted Scenes.” Introduced by the amazing talented and one of the most jovial men to ever pick up an pencil, Disney Legend, Floyd Norman, these scenes are more sketches with explanations of what Walt Disney had intended along with a reading of the script. Although they are extremely fascinating in how preserved the original sketches are, the section leads you to believe that these were actual animated clips.

Disney always hits a grand slam with the Signature Collections and Bambi is no exception. I learned more about deer and woodland creatures from the three minute clip than I think I did in all of second grade. I didn’t know that baby bunnies were called kittens or kits for short.

Bambi is out now on Disney Movies Anywhere and comes to Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

  • Overall Score
4.5

The Verdict

Bambi remains a Disney triumph, only now you can cry even harder with its digitally restored Signature Collection touches.
