Samuel E. Wright,
The film went through several production names. The first was "Bambi and the Great Prince of the Forest", which was its advertised title on the Bambi DVD. The next title was shortened to "Bambi and the Great Prince", then finally, "Bambi II". See more »
As Ronno is talking to Bambi and Faline for the first time, the notch on his ear vanishes every once in a while, then it returns. See more »
The Great Prince:
[looks up, sighs]
Oh, excellent. After all: who better to raise the Young Prince than the Great Prince himself!

This film would not have been possible without the inspiration from the original motion picture and the work of its talented artists and animators. See more »
Bambi 2 - One of the fewest good sequels from Disney
I had to admitted that the sequels of most the original Disney Picture movie were often disappointing. However, after I had seen Bambi 2, I found that it was an enchanting, funny and warm movie, it is definitely one of the fewest best sequels came from the original one.
The story happened to be in between the scene that Bambi's mother was gone and the prince, his father, took him; and the scene he grew up. It is talking about how Bambi lives with his father. At the beginning, his father took care of Bambi temporarily until he find the suitable one to take care of him. As a prince, his father appeared to be quite tough to him at the beginning. However, when they lives longer and longer, the father and son relationship grew. Bambi started to enjoy living with his father. Though they were living so happy, his father found the suitable one and Bambi was sent away. Through an accident, finally, the great prince changed his mind and determined to raise Bambi by his own.
The film is well organized. The characters are well-designed and redrew and the story unfold naturally. The background music was so pleasant to be listened to and match the scene very well. Some scenes were quite memorable, Bambi plays with his father and his father slowly unfold his mind. I can see that he really care about Bambi. it is so warm.
Although the original one was more than 60 years ago, the sequel gave me the feeling of the movies of 19th. The original movie gave me a little bit sorrow and made me sad; But this one gave me warmth and hope.
All above are just my personal opinions, other may not agree perfectly, but, for me, it is worth watching and it is one of the fewest best sequels from the original one. I scored it 9.
