Bambi is celebrating its 75th anniversary! It is the fourth movie to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection. To celebrate, you can bring home Bambi on Blu-Ray and Digital HD with all new special features that show you the rich history of this classic film.
Bambi was released in 1942 during World War II and has been loved by every generation since. It is one of the most treasured animated movies of all time, holding the No. 3 spot on the American Film Institute's “10 Top 10.”
I was excited to be sent home with a copy of the Blu-Ray + Digital HD. Our other copy of Bambi is just a standard DVD. The quality of the Blu-Ray blows the other out of the water. It feels like new life was breathed into the animation and the intricacies of the characters and the environment are more pronounced. Bambi and his forest friends are moving along beautiful paintings as they tell the story of friendship, loss, and love.
Bambi is a must have for your Disney movie collection!

While visiting the Walt Disney Animation Studios, I had the honor of speaking to Donnie Dunagan (young Bambi) and Peter Behn (young Thumper). It was amazing to hear their stories about what it was like making the movie and working with Walt Disney.
I remember as a kid, playing with the figurines of Bambi, Thumper, and Flower. My kids now play with their plushes and the new figurines available at the Disney Store. Just look at these two, you know you want to bring them home!
When I saw they had this adorable backdrop for us to play with, I knew exactly who I was going to be!
And with a little Disney magic…

Bambi is one of the first disney movies I watched. The first one was Lady & the Tramp and the second one Snow White! This is great they are having it back on blue ray! xx corinne
I need to pick this up. It made me cry a lot when I was a kid, but I liked the story.
I just hosted a Disney dinner party where the main course was Bambi’s Mom. Now I’m going to feel guilty seeing this movie everywhere. Lol. I am excited to introduce my son to Thumper though!
Wow, looks like you had a great time getting information on this movie. Bambi is such a great movie, it was the first movie I ever saw in the theaters.

Bambi is such a classic, I can;t wait until it is released from the Disney Vault! The ending does pull at my heartstrings but it’s still such a cute movie.

Bambi has always been one of my favorite Disney movies since I was a young child. I am going to have to get this on Blu-ray and watch it with my nieces and nephews. The message is what makes the story. Thanks for sharing this awesome movie.
