This year Disney’s Bambi celebrates it’s 75th anniversary and will join the Walt Disney Signature Collection. It is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand. Originally released in 1943 during World War II, it took over 5 years to make due to the hand drawn, detailed artwork. Did you know that Bambi holds the #3 spot on the American Film Institute’s “10 Top 10” which honors the 10 greatest films of all time? It’s easy for me to see how it earned that spot with it’s timeless tale and lovable characters. Seriously, who can resist Bambi’s wobbly newborn legs, Thumper’s adorable voice and the irresistibly sweet personality of Flower the Skunk? I also love music in this movie!
” The Collection release includes a variety of new bonus material, including recordings of Walt Disney discussing the challenges and triumphs during the production of “Bambi;” deleted scenes and characters; stories and effects that “Bambi” had on the Studio, other films and artists; and much, much more. Additionally, the Digital HD release includes an exclusive, heartfelt feature on the incredible artist, Tyrus Wong, who inspired the film’s soft watercolor backgrounds and beautiful palette.”
It’s really neat to learn what went into making the movie and the people that are behind the scenes. Deleted scenes are also a fun treat!
