Trivia

This film includes ideas meant for Bambi (1942) which were ultimately cut. See more »

Goofs

In the 1942 original movie, Bambi's mom said, no deer lived half as long as The Great Prince of the Forest. In other words he was more than twice as old as any deer she knew lived long enough to be. That would make The Great Prince much older than her. In Bambi II, however, The Great Prince told Bambi (still a young fawn) that he was Bambi's age when he met Bambi's mom for the first time. Although, she may have been exaggerating. See more »

Quotes

The Great Prince: Friend Owl.
Owl: Excuse me, sir, I hope I'm not intruding but... well... I just had to come.
[Looks at Bambi]
Owl: Poor little fella. So young to be without his mother. Well, if I can be of any help...
[starts to fly away]

A midquel which tells the story of how Bambi meets and gets to know his father
12 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching the old Disney movies, and Bambi has always been one of my favorites. When I first saw that they were making a new Bambi movie, I was really torn. I hoped that it would be a good follow-up, but was afraid that it would ruin the whole Bambi experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the movie, though not as good as the original is far surpassing many Disney sequels.

The animation quality is good. Not only is it much better than most of Disney's recent sequels, it is is actually up to, and at some points even surpassing, the animation in the original. The songs were beautiful, and to my immense relief, they are all sung in the background in the style of the original. There is only one point at which any of the animals sing. It was extremely cheesy, but mercifully short.

The only real failing of this movie is that it lacks the fresh, genuine feeling of the original. While Bambi I felt unique and novel, Bambi II often feels cliché and it seems like they are recycling some material from The Lion King. The addition of Ronno as an antagonist adds nothing to the story but goofiness and low-quality humor. The Great Prince's character seems to be the caricature "single dad" struggling to understand his kid. And while Bambi's character has always been humanized (as are all animals in Disney movies) he seems far more "human" and much less "animal" than he did in the original.

Overall, I liked this movie, and was able to get a few nostalgic moments. Although it does not quite live up to the original, it is nevertheless a sweet and enjoyable movie.
