As morning light breaks across the meadow, a young deer named Bambi is born and hailed as ‘Prince of the Forest.’ Soon Bambi emerges from the thicket on wobbly legs, much to the delight of his new friends, Thumper, the playful rabbit, and Flower, the bashful yet lovable skunk. But the fun of nibbling on fresh blossoms and frolicking through the woods is only the beginning.

My Review:

It’s hard to believe that Bambi has been around since 1942! That’s 69 years!!! I remember watching Bambi when I was really young and it was one of the first Disney movies that I watched. I hadn’t seen the movie since so I got to experience this magical film again.

I love the story of dear Bambi and his forest friends. I enjoyed seeing Bambi experience the world for the first time. He was so enamored with the snow, rain and the little things that we all take for granted. I chuckled at some of the scenes especially the one of Bambi trying to navigate through the first snowfall!

This is a timeless classic that people of all ages can watch and enjoy. It has scenes that will warm your heart, scenes that will leave you on the edge of your seat and scenes that will make you laugh.
