This movie broke the record of the longest interval between a sequel and its predecessor, previously held by The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Return to Oz (1985). Bambi (1942) was released in 1942, "Bambi II" in 2006, 64 years later.
The background-paintings were painted with "Corel Photo Paint", but some of the original oil-painting backgrounds from the 1942 original movie were scanned with a computer, and parts of these scans were reused in the new backgrounds.
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".
