Bambi celebrates its 75th anniversary and joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection this year. That makes for a great opportunity to add the classic film to your family movie night list this month. Find out more about the film’s special features on Blu-ray, get some Bambi gift ideas, and find out how to participate for your chance to win your own copy.
Movie nights are a great way to spend some time relaxing with the kids after a long week. Last night, my kids took their baths, grabbed their stuffed animals and favorite blankets, and I popped up some corn. Then we all enjoyed a great night of classic Disney animation with Bambi. Amazing! So many memorable moments. One of my favorite scenes is when it starts to rain and Bambi sees lighting for the first time. It is so beautifully done!
Did you know Bambi was released in 1942 during World War II? It took over five years to create because of its exquisite hand-drawn artwork. No wonder it still holds the No. 3 spot on the American Film Institute’s “Top 10.”
Here is a list of some of the bonus content included with the Blu-ray version (remember that some bonus features may vary by retailer):
- Deleted scenes:
- Bambi’s Ice and Snow – Bambi coaxes Thumper and his brothers and sisters to come play on the ice during the first snow.
- The Grasshopper – A grasshopper confronts Bambi and Thumper and finds himself in quite a predicament.
- The Bambi Effect – Take a look at the film’s innovations and how they affected future Disney animated films even up to today.
- Bambi Fawn Facts – Discover fun, real-life facts about the creatures who live in the forest he calls home.
- Studio Stories – Listen in as Walt Disney discusses the challenges, pitfalls, and triumphs faced during the production of Bambi.
- Celebrating Tyrus Wong – A heartfelt look at the man who played a key role in the success of Bambi. The soft, water-colored backgrounds and beautiful palettes were inspired by his concept art paintings.
- Plus, classic bonus features like the Making of Bambi, Inside the Disney Archives, and more.
You can find Bambi already in Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, or you can get it on Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on June 6, 2017.
