TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 8 May 2017
I loved this Disney animated classic when I first saw it as a very young child, although I didn't buy the DVD for a trip down memory lane. Rather, because, having read of the death of the Disney artist, Tyrus Wong in December last year, I couldn't wait to see it again, mostly for the artwork. The New York Times described this perfectly: 'Disney's craftsmen have re-created a woodland that shimmers and glows and darkens altogether magically. The wind over a green field, the morning light on the meadow ....' Much of this was due to Wong's creation of semi-abstract backgrounds inspired by Chinese art, and the result is truly wonderful. Of course the animations, the voices, songs and music are also transporting, and on this DVD (not blu ray) edition they are improved by Disney's state-of-the-art Enhanced Modern Home Theatre Mix. Absolute bliss!

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Inside Walt's Story Meetings; Deleted sequences; The Making of Bambi, A Prince is Born; DisneyPedia (facts about our forest friends); Lots of games and activities (I followed one of these 'The Forest Adventure' which is for very young children, but I found it a delightful experience.) There are also subtitles, in English and English for the Hard of Hearing (but only on the main feature.)

At current prices, it's a real bargain, and one of the best ever Disney productions for your collection, particularly if you like the old style loving attention to detail animators brought to their creations in those days. But bear in mind it was made in 1942, so may be a little too slow and gentle for some of today's kids.
UPDATE: My review has also been posted against another edition of Bambi so make sure you look for the one with the cover that clearly states 2-disc special edition at the bottom, although there are a few extras on the other edition as well. Also, prices change very quickly sometimes.

There's much I could say about this charming film ,however I think the review by 'londonlady' sums up nearly all I could say ,so look at the very decently priced 2 disc editions & grab yourself a luminous bargain.Currently the 2disc version is listed as a single disc at a price that would be a crime to miss out on.

Lovely story. Few sad bits but overall my daughters loved it and enjoyed the music. Also good for them to realise that lighting a fire in a woods can cause such a lot of damage. Has made them realise about the cycle of life more and given them something to think about.

Another great classic from Disney puts some modern animation to shame great picture quality and colour you can see the masterful watercolour work up on the screen blu ray manages to show this better than DVD 10 out of 10
