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 she was. 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

Owl: [about Bambi and Faline] Ugh. Twitterpated.
Flower: What's "twitterpated"?
Owl: Oh, I'll, uh, tell you when you're older.

By far one of the better Disney sequels-: never fails to bring a smile to my face
6 October 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I honestly wasn't expecting Bambi 2 to be as good as it was. I found it it sweet, funny and adorable. The original Bambi is not only one of my favourite Disney movies, but one of my favourite movies ever. I thought this a very worthy sequel, well it was more of a midquel really, if a tad rushed in places. I liked the fact that they focused on Bambi and his father, after his mother dies, and the story itself was very sweet and well crafted. The animation was beautiful here, not quite as splendid as its predecessor. I have seen sequels like FernGully 2 and Secret of NIMH 2 where the animation is dull, tacky and choppy. Here it was colourful, vibrant and fluid, just look at the wondrous backgrounds. And I absolutely loved the soundtrack, that alone contributed to the film's charm. Of course I do slightly prefer the original's music, but the soundtrack here was so pleasant to the ears. The characters were every bit as likable as they were in the first- Bambi if you forgive the fact his facial expressions were overdone at times, was still adorable and appealing, and Thumper is hilarious. If there is one thing I prefer over the original, it is that the sequel is funnier than the original. The original, while having some very funny moments was more of a tearjerker and a genuine one it was too. In the sequel, there are five or six funny bits in the first fifteen minutes alone. The voice acting was most impressive, special mention must go to Patrick Stewart, who was perfect as the Great Prince. My final verdict is that it isn't quite as good as the stunning original, but along with King Of Thieves and Enchanted Christmas, this is in the top 5 of my favourite sequels. A solid 8/10 Bethany Cox
