“Bambi” is another one of those American Animated history staples. Plus, it’s a cultural milestone that permeates so many viewer’s personal histories. Everyone knows how they responded when Bambi’s mother was shot. Some people have memories of using that scene to torture younger siblings, friends and nearby victims. But, why release it a second time on Blu-ray? Outside of the dreaded Disney Vault, it’s the perfect chance to introduce it to a new generation.
When it comes to films like this, even the special features suggest that the film exists on another level. That being said, I did enjoy the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short. I love vintage Disney animation, especially ones that were only recently liberated from Universal. I also find it weird to spend more time with the featurettes rather than the special features. Back in the day, vintage WB DVDs would present older movies as they were shown in the 1930s and 1940s. Newsreels, animated shorts, etc were set to play like a vintage evening at the movies. Oh well, just an idea.
