A timeless classic that has been loved for generations, BAMBI now joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection. In this life-changing adventure, Bambi sets off with his best friends Thumper and Flower to explore the wonders and challenges of the woods -- and fulfill his destiny as prince of the forest. Full of humor and heart, and featuring awe-inspiring animation, BAMBI remains a family favorite, ready to delight a whole new generation.|In striving for realism, the artists heard lectures from animal experts, made field trips to the Los Angeles Zoo, watched specially filmed nature footage shot in the forests of Maine, and even studied the movements of two fawns that were donated to the Studio.|"Fellas, this stuff is pure gold," Walt Disney told the animators. The story of the little deer coming of age has endured, and today, BAMBI is universally regarded as one of Walt Disney's most charming films.

On the commentary track, they recreated, through transcripts of actual story conferences, the voices of "Bambi's" creative team (including Walt and his artists) as they planned the movie scene by scene, frame by frame. You hear their thoughts and plans about color schemes and music and action as the movie unfolds before you. It is a fascinating look into the creation of this animated classic. I knew I'd love "Bambi" but the commentary track was an extra treat. The 2-disk "Bambi" DVD is a great addition to any movie lover's collection.
The two-disc DVD set comes with a new special features disc that highlights the incredibly long and arduous process of bringing this timeless tale to life on the big screen. "Inside Walt's Story Meetings" reveals the collaborative work between Walt Disney himself and many other studio executives as actors and current Disney experts narrate the actual conversation that took place more than sixty years ago set against key scenes in the film as they play out on screen. It's very similar to a director's commentary that would be included in today's blockbuster films. Another very informative behind the scenes segment is "Time Capsule: The year of Bambi". Hosted by Patrick Stewart renowned for his performances in (Star Trek: The Next Generation, A Christmas Carol and the TV movie mini series Moby Dick.) Stewart has recently lent his wonderful acting prestige to the new release of "Bambi 2" where he plays Bambi's father. It's nice to see such a wonderful actor like Stewart getting involved in more family friendly film endeavors. Moving on, Time Capsule examines the era in history where "Bambi" found its way into the hearts of millions around the world and provided audiences with an easy momentary escape from the fears and troubles of World War II. Finally, in "The Making of Bambi" we get to meet the surviving actors of the film and learn how they lent their original talents to a movie that would be destined to become a legend. An interesting fact that I found most insightful was that the former actor who voiced Bambi in the original film later went onto command entire army regiments during his more mature years in adulthood.
If you have kids who are dying to watch a great Disney movie or just want to relive a more innocent time of your childhood for nostalgia, "Bambi" is definitely worth getting. As for me, other great classics like Pinocchio, Cinderella and The Lion King are on my "to do list" to check out on DVD.
