Walt Disney Signature collection Bambi a great Disney classic with amazing bonus content! available on Blu-ray Today! #BambiBluRay

****Disney provided an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****

The classic Disney film Bambi is 75th anniversary is this year, and is celebrating with the release of the highly anticipated Walt Disney Signature collection Bambi! This will be available Digital HD May 23rd and Blu-ray June 6th! Bambi, one of Walt Disney’s most beloved classics, to me is one of his best films. This coming-of-age story has delighted audiences for 75 years. 

I have seen photos of artists studying and practicing their drawings on actual deer that were brought into the office, to be sure that the motions and actions of the deer on the screen look as authentic as they possible could.  The film took over five years to make due to its exquisite hand-drawn artwork and attention to detail. The breathtaking landscape and drawings, and lovable characters makes this movie stand out from all others. Get ready to follow along with Bambi, his playful pal Thumper, the lovable skunk Flower and his wise Friend Owl!

"Bambi," Walt Disney's beloved, will thrill audiences with its breathtaking animation and characters who will touch your heart: A timeless classic that has been loved for generations, Bambi now joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection in this celebrated anniversary edition. In this life-changing adventure, Bambi sets off with his best friends Thumper and Flower to explore the wonders and challenges of the woods - and fulfill his destiny as prince of the forest. 

Bambi is the kind of movie that makes you laugh makes you cry, really makes you feel. This is a movie that takes you on a roller coaster of emotions, but you want to experience to again and again. Did you know that the Walt Disney classic “Bambi” holds the No. 3 spot on the American Film Institute’s “10 Top 10,” honoring the 10 greatest animated films of all time. 
The movies love spans generations, from my grandmother growing up with the movie, to my daughter growing up with the movie, it is a classic that is a part of movie history. My grandmother was 5 when she went to see the movie, and when she heard that I was going to be able to cover the newest release she was excited and told me that Bambi is one of the first movies she ever saw, and that she still loves it. 
The 75th anniversary edition is filled with extras you may have seen from the classic movie releases from the past the extras include, Deleted Scenes: Two Leaves, Bambi Stuck on a Reed, Winter Grass, Twitterpated, The Making of Bambi: A Prince is Born, Characters Drawn to Nature, Actors: Giving Voice to Animas, Art Design: Impressions of the Forrest, Music: Nature’s Symphony, History: Back to the Beginning, Tricks of the Trade excerpt, Inside the Disney Archives, The Old Mill: Animated Short, Original Theatrical Trailer, and The Golden Age.

The Bambi Effect, “Bambi” was full of innovations for its time. With this extra 
we get a chance to take a look at how those past innovations affected future Disney animated titles all the way up to today.  How did Bambi change the animated cartoons we watch today?

Studio Stories: “Bambi” Recordings of Walt Disney. Listen in on intimate moments where he discusses the challenges, pitfalls and triumphs during the production of “Bambi.”

As you would expect from a Disney release there are some great Deleted Scenes, including Bambi’s Ice and Snow, in this scene Bambi coaxes Thumper and his brothers and sisters to come play on the ice during the first snow, and The Grasshopper with this scene you see a grasshopper confronts Bambi and Thumper and finds himself in quite a predicament. I love when there are deleted scenes added to a release, it is a great way to see how a movie could have taken another route, or how a character can change, or you can just see a sure little scene that you have never seen before.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit: “Africa Before Dark” This Oswald Short, is cute and starts the zany Oswald. Walt Disney’s original character. I am so glad that the Disney corporation got the rights back for this character, Walt would be proud to see his creation still out there making shorts under his company again.  
There is even a special digital exclusive short called, Celebrating Tyrus Wong, this is a heartfelt look at the man who played a key role in the success of “Bambi.” Much like Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle, Tyrus Wong had a unique signature style all to his own. The soft water-colored backgrounds and beautiful palettes in “Bambi” were inspired by Tyrus’ concept art paintings. 
Before receiving this Blu-Ray, we had an older vhs clam shell copy of the film that we have watched again and again. Bambi is a movie that I watched as a young girl, and that my daughter grew up watching. The old vhs was grainy and jumped a bit, but we always watched and enjoyed it. I am so glad that this is now out on Blu-ray the quality is amazing and so much better than what I had in the past, you cannot even compare it! 
With the purchase of a digital movie you can get a special edition tank top featuring the Paul Felix art inspired by Bambi! This will be available via Disney Movie Rewards with every digital purchase/redemption of Bambi.   

With the added classic extras and the brand new bonus features, this is a movie that is a must for your Disney movie collection. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this special signature collection dvd. Walt Disney Signature collection Bambi is 75th anniversary Blu-ray is available now!

I love the movie Bambi. I am anxiously awaiting my pre-ordered copy, because none of the stores in my area ever keep the Signature Collection combo packs in stock for very long. Bambi is one of the all time greats. That tank top is to die for!
