Reflecting an age of innocence and a time of wonder, no film better captures the pure magic of Disney than BAMBI -- perhaps the world's most endearing animated tale about the beauty of nature and the miracle of life. An immortal blend of classic storytelling and unforgettable characters comes to breathtaking life through the artistry of some of Disney's all-time greatest animators! Digitally restored and remastered this is a timeless treat for everyone. Disc Two contains a host of extras including behind-the-scenes and the classic animated cartoon THE OLD MILL (1937).
THE STORY: As morning light breaks across the meadow, a new prince of the forest is born. Soon Bambi emerges from the thicket on wobbly legs, much to the delight of his new friends, Thumper, the playful rabbit, and Flower, the shy yet lovable skunk. But the fun of skating on stiff water, nibbling fresh blossoms, and frolicking through the woods is only the beginning. Guided by the wisdom of Friend Owl, Bambi learns valuable lessons about love, loss, growth and renewal along the way. NOTE: The scene depicting the tragic death of Bambi's mother traumatised a whole generation of children and is still today regarded as one of the watershed moments in cinema history (along with the death of the dog in OLD YELLER). Therefore we believe it is advisable that young children should be accompanied by an adult during the first screening of the film.
