Grab Bambi on Blu-Ray Today #BambiBluRay #PiratesLifeEvent
In addition to interviewing the original voices of Bambi and Thumper (Donnie Dunagan and Peter Behn), I received an advance copy of Bambi to review prior to it’s release today. I must say the story is much like I remember as a kid. Definitely heart-warming and a timeless classic. My kids fell in love with both Bambi and Thumper, however #TheBoy has a thing for Flower (the skunk in the movie). Maybe that’s because he is a little stinker himself.
So what is all the fuss about Bambi? Well Disney is celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Bambi and inducting this lovable movie into the Walt Disney Signature Collection. This is a great family film and perfect for a family movie night. Order your copy of Bambi today.
All about Bambi:
“Bambi,” Walt Disney’s beloved coming-of-age story, will thrill audiences with its breathtaking animation and characters who will touch your heart: Bambi, the wide-eyed fawn, his playful pal Thumper, the lovable skunk Flower and wise Friend Owl. (C) 1942 Disney
“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 the prince of the forest.
