Bambi Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review

Bambi was one of my favorite movies when I was a child! I couldn’t wait to receive the Bambi Anniversary Edition blu-ray. When you re-watch your favorite movies as an adult, you gain a whole new perspective of the movie, while also seeing what your children think of it today.

The Bambi Anniversary Edition Blu-ray is released on June 6th.

Interesting Bonus Material

While watching the bonus material, I realized this movie changed the future of Disney movies. Before this movie, Disney animal cartoons were simplistic. When Bambi was made, Walt Disney brought in live animals to the studio. Animators practiced drawing live animals to help make the movie. From the quick movements of squirrels to the strong muscles of deers, the drawings became much more life-like.

After the creation of such realistic animals in Bambi, animation changed forever. With later movies that include Lion King and The Jungle Book, a trend started to show how animals truly look.

A Classic Story That Children Enjoy

My daughter was excited to watch the movie. Thoughtfully, she made a detailed movie poster to display.

My children had a couple of favorite parts. First, they adored Thumper. Rabbits have always been one of their favorite animals. Also, they thought the skunk named Flower was hilarious.

Since my memories of Bambi were of it being a lovely but sad story, I was glad to see my children enjoy it. Not only did my children enjoy it, but the whole family could also appreciate how awesome the colors showed up on our television.

Collectible Tyrus Wong Lithograph

Another neat part of the Bambi anniversary edition blu-ray was that it came with the collectible Tyrus Wong Lithograph. Tyrus Wong was an artist whose paintings inspired the movie. Since he passed away in December 2016, the lithograph commemorates him. Owning this beautiful scene is a wonderful part of having the movie. Disney fans can truly appreciate this.

Digital Edition

If you need another reason to own the new Bambi anniversary edition blu-ray, remember that with this edition, you can now add the movie to your Disney Movies Anywhere collection. This is my third movie to have in my digital collection. Having an online resource of Disney movies is very helpful during summer travels!

    Bambi was one of the first movies I ever saw in the theater when I was little. They must have replayed old Disney movies in the 80s. So much nostalgia!

    This is so cool! I’ve watched Bambi on vhs and haven’t watched it since. I’ll have to get the dvd to watch it again. Your daughter is so sweet drawing a picture for movie night. I always did something similar as a little girl.

    I used to have Bambi on a clamshell VHS (do the kids know what those are anymore?) and I nearly wore it out, and I never replaced it. Now is the time!

    I love Disney movies, with a big puffy heart, but I don’t like Bambi or Dumbo. 🙁 I hate the idea of the mom dying. It was a sad movie to me as a kid, and I can’t bear to watch it as an adult.

    I had no idea that animators used real animals – in the studio – to help their creation of the Bambi drawings! That is amazing! Although Bambi was a sad movie, I love it to pieces and love that its on blu-ray now!
