Even today, 69 years after it was released, Bambi remains a remarkable achievement in hand drawn animation. The world depicted within it is not realized with the depth of detail we see in today's animated features. The result, however, is equally convincing and certainly more artistic. Yet, despite is technical and aesthetic merits, the charming characters and some wonderful moments, Bambi shows its age. The musical score is old-fashioned, the story is simple and there is not an annoying personality to be heard. Irrespective of how well it resonates with modern audiences, however, Bambi has never looked better. It is the latest Blu-ray reissue in Disney's Diamond Edition series. Yet again the studio has done yet a splendid job of remastering the audio and video for HD. It has also packed in a mass of superb extras making Bambi another must-buy for collectors.

Bambi is based on Felix Salten's novel, »
