One of my all-time favorite Disney movies “Bambi,” the endearing, timeless tale of a wide-eyed fawn, is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year and is being added to the celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection! It’s available on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on May 23, and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on June 6.
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.
“Bambi” was released in 1942 during World War II and took over five years to make due to its exquisite hand-drawn artwork and attention to detail. Beloved by generations, “Bambi” holds the No. 3 spot on the American Film Institute’s “10 Top 10,” honoring the 10 greatest animated films of all time. The timeless tale features an adorable young deer named Bambi who explores the wonders and challenges of the woods with his playful pal Thumper, the lovable skunk Flower, and wise Friend Owl – and ultimately fulfills his destiny as prince of the forest.
If you’re ready to plan a Bambi viewing party, we have an adorable Bambi Butterfly cupcake recipe. One of the most classic Disney images ever is Bambi looking at the butterfly on his nose while Thumper looks on. So, it’s only fitting that we create our own butterflies!
