Bambi on DVD
Disney unlocked the vaults and Bambi is now available for purchase. We got a sneak peek at the DVD and the kids just adored the movie. It's certainly an old classic and the second movie I can ever remember seeing in the movie theater when I was about 4 or 5 years old. Bambi is Walt Disney's fifth full length animated film and was originally released in 1942 - so there is a very old vibe to the flick. The music is beautiful and the kids loved the nature setting and talking animals.
Thumper the bunny and Flower the skunk were a real hit for the kids. I thought I should caution them about Bambi's mother dying as I presumed they'd be upset... maybe they would have been if I didn't warn them it was going to happen but I must say with my warning they were totally unaffected by what I remember being a tragic sad part of the movie as a kid. They just rolled with it and enjoyed Bambi's adventure, the big fire at the end of the flick, and seeing the transition of him as a new fawn and then as a true King of the Forest.
Also, I love that Disney offers the Blu-Ray, DVD combo package as we have need for both style DVD's in our household. Classy Mommy Approved. Snatch this one up before it's locked up in the vault again!
