For the first time ever, the wonder, music and majesty of one of Walt Disney's greatest triumphs comes alive in glorious detail through the magic of Blu-ray high definition! Now Bambi, Walt Disney's beloved coming-of-age story, will thrill a new generation of fans with its breathtakingly beautiful animation, soaring music and characters who will touch your heart-Bambi, the wide-eyed fawn, his playful pal Thumper, the loveable skunk Flower and wise Friend Owl. Plus, all-new immersive game and special features that reveal the extraordinary creative process behind the making of this timeless classic take you deeper into Bambi's world than ever before.
Walt Disney's Bambi is an experience you will never forget-now more brilliant than ever on Blu-ray.
Unlike many of Disney's Blu-ray releases, the color hasn't been oversaturated on Bambi, a wise decision as the delicate palette contributes so much to the poetic visuals discussed in the extras. The most important--and striking--of the new features is "Inside Walt's Story Meetings." Actors impersonating Walt Disney and several of his key artists read partial transcripts of discussions that took place during the creation of the film, between 1937 and 1940. Their narration is juxtaposed with the finished film and insets of relevant sketches, stills, rough animation, etc. Sadly, the filmmakers mar this striking explication with annoying pop-up windows inviting the viewer to see this or listen to that. Also included are storyboards and sketches for two deleted sequences. In "Two Leaves" (introduced by this reviewer), the last two leaves clinging to an autumn tree speculate about their ultimate fate. Although the leaves provide a poignant moment in the book, they only distract the audience from the main story arc. Similarly, a scene of Bambi getting tangled up in a reed and disturbing a wood mouse's nest is amusing, but does nothing to further the plot. And listeners will agree Walt was wise to cut a very forgettable song about being twitterpated. It all adds up to a beautiful package that can only deepen the viewer's appreciation of the most lyrical of Walt Disney's animated features. --Charles Solomon

When that happens, Amazon usually refunds the difference automatically within a couple days. Amazon is pretty good about doing that without your needing to call in.

The sideways title is the only thing that throws me off, but I've come to learn that packaging and artwork are one of the least important aspects of home video. The content is what really matters, and in this case the content more than makes up for the less than perfect cover.
