Bambi comes to Blu-ray next March
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the 1942 animated film BAMBI will be released on Blu-ray March 1, 2011. The Blu-ray will be in a BD/DVD combo pack and will be restored both visually and audibly and will be a part of the Disney Diamond Collection. I’m sure many of you have seen this classic sometime or another, but here’s a short recap. BAMBI is about a young deer who must grow up on his own in the forest when his mother is killed by a hunter. He makes friends with the local wildlife that include Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk.
I don’t remember much about it, except that it was quite depressing and didn’t really have much of a plot. However, for you hardcore Disney film fans this is a must have for your personal collection. You never know when Disney will throw a film back into their vault. Special features for the film include:
- Disney’s Second Screen – Content comes alive on your laptop, iPad, or smartphone as you watch the movie.
- Disney View – 16×9 Full frame viewing experience
- Intro by Diane Disney Miller
- Inside Walt’s Story Meetings – Enhanced interactive edition
- Two never-before-seen deleted scenes
- Deleted song
- Blu-ray interactive galleries
- Game: Disney Big Book of Knowledge
- Classic DVD bonus features
