:: Bambi

Bambi is one of Walt Disney's greatest triumphs and one of the all-time most requested Disney classics. It is widely believed that Bambi has had the greatest impact on viewers of any Disney film. Originally theatrically released in 1942, it has been re-released many times since for millions of fans. Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two of Walt's legendary animators who worked on the film, have ascribed the film's continuing popularity to its dynamic mixture of fantasy and reality.

Bambi is a film experience so strong that neither heart nor mind can ever forget it. The young deer Bambi grows to adulthood as he experiences the wonder and adventure of life in the Forest. Bambi's unforgettable iconic characters include Thumper the playful rabbit, Flower the lovable skunk, and Owl, the wise friend. Through changing seasons, fans will be endeared to the classic tale of Bambi, the young prince of the forest.

The new 2-disc DVD features state-of-the art remixed sound with the all-new 5.1 Disney Enhanced Home Theatre Mix. The extensively remixed soundtrack provides dramatic clarity and crisper sound. This all-new digital restoration, done exclusively for this Special Edition DVD release, required a team of film, computer and animation experts to apply the most advanced technology and talent the studio has ever assembled. These efforts have restored Bambi's extraordinary artwork to dazzling brilliance.

The groundbreaking technology employed includes detailed frame-by-frame work on over 110,000 frames, requiring more than 9,600 hours of work! This has resulted in stunning digital images with a far greater range of both colour and density. The quintessential Walt Disney classic now comes to life as never before.
