Bambi Anniversary Edition Available Today On Blu-ray And DVD #BambiBluray

Exclusive Interviews: Original Voices Of Bambi, Thumper & Paul Felix #BambiBluray

Can you believe that my husband has never seen Bambi? Well, I should say that he hadn’t, until a few days ago. When I returned home from the Pirates Of The Caribbean/Bambi press trip, where I also got to interview the original voices behind Bambi and Thumper! I also returned with a brand new copy of Bambi: The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD Anniversary Edition, courtesy of Disney. So, we watched it together and I am going to share with you a little about this brand new version of the Disney classic.

Get The Bambi Anniversary Edition On Blu-ray, DVD & On-Demand

Today you can pick up the Bambi Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand! Today is the day, people! You can also get Bambi on Digital HB and Disney Movies Anywhere. This version of the classic is particularly cool in that it offers a lot of new things for viewers, including deleted scenes and characters and more. This year, Bambi joins Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast and Pinocchio in the Walt Disney Signature Collection.

What’s new on the Bambi Anniversary Edition?

– A variety of new bonus material including discussions by Walt Disney
– Deleted scenes and characters
– Effects Bambi had on the studio, other films and artists
– A feature on Tyrus Wong, the artist who inspired Bambi’s soft watercolor backgrounds and beautiful palette.

While on the #BambiBluray press trip, I also got to interview Paul Felix, a current artist at Disney Animation Studios who was heavily inspired by the work of Tyrus Wong.

My Favorite “Extras”

Out of everything that you get extra on the Bambi Anniversary Edition, I think my favorites are the recordings of Walt Disney. It’s so interesting to hear his insights on the movie and the making of it. He talks about having animals on set for the artists to view, as well as different training classes they had to help the artists become better.

I also really enjoyed the Bambi Fawn Facts. This part, in particular, is great for kids. This portion of the Bambi Anniversary Set helps you learn a lot about deer, as well as other forest animals.

Our Thoughts On The Bambi Anniversary Edition

Jay and I both really enjoyed it. I am still amazed that he had never seen Bambi before. Admittedly, it had been years for me. I definitely enjoyed Bambi more this time, especially after the insightful interviews with people behind the movie. I mean, I had never before thought about Bambi as a move about protecting our environment, as a child. But when Peter Behn [Thumper] shared with us how important it was to Walt Disney to emphasize our need for taking care of and looking after our surroundings, I really started to look at the movie in a different light.

It’s amazing how a movie can seem so simple and cute and really appeal to children, yet that same movie can also have a deeper meaning that makes it also appeal to adults on a completely different level. That, my friends, is the magic of Disney.

  3. One of my childhood memories is watching Bambi and absolutely loosing control of my emotions when Bambi’s Mum died, I just couldn’t cope with it.

    It is such a sweet movie though.

  6. Aww I love Bambi. We introduced the film to the Witches at Christmas. I love the Bambi and Thumper teddy’s, think we will have to go buy them this weekend!! Haha x Great Post!!

  7. I might have to get this edition. I bought my kids this DVD a LONG time ago, like 13 years ago, it is worn out now. I don’t even think my youngest has seen this movie since our DVD is so scratched!

  8. Bambi and Dumbo are both Disney movies that I refuse to watch. They are just so sad, and geared towards younger children. I remember watching both as a young kid, and being so heart broken. 🙁

  21. I definitely want to own this one. This is one of my favorite Disney movies.

  22. I love Bambi when I was little. I know everyone is all about Thumper (and I did love him), but I really adored Flower. There was just something about that sweet skunk!

  27. Amy Desrosiers says

    My kids have never had the pleasure of watching Bambi. I know they would love it as much as I had.

  28. I LOVE Bambi. I loved it as a kid. We had a few books with the character. AND the movie. I also followed the press trip and it looked like fun

  29. Dogvills says

    I loved Bambi as a child. The movie had sad moments, but still had good moral lessons in it. I am going to get a copy of the DVD. It would be nice to add this to our movie library. I am sure it will take a while to put it up on the shelf, because my daughter would want to watch it over and over.

  30. I soooo LOVED Bambi as a child (after I wasn’t scared). It is a great family film and I can not wait to share it with my little ones.

  31. I loved Bambi as a kid and can’t wait for my daughters to experience this at home with me! We are going to have such a fun movie night together.
