In a magazine about Disney that i read recently, this animation was considered like an awful sh.t, totally shameful and disastrous..
On the other hand, my watching was rather peaceful and interesting. Maybe the fact that i still haven't watch the original explains my attitude but it would be only marginal.
OK : the start is a bit rough because we catch up Bambi and his father just after mom/wife death in winter We don't know more and it's true that Bambi doesn't seem particularly affected by such a loss
If we put that apart, however, the movie is rather good : it's just about 1 hour so it's rather quick ; The passing of seasons, winter trough summer, is beautifully done : the colors are vivid and for one time, the songs echo to the ambiance ! The characters are well drawn, especially to read their feelings as for humans. The story focuses about Bambi learning the ropes to become the future king : we can regret the 1st rank seat but Bambi seeks also a connection with his distant father and the way to be brave. The most important is that Bambi has a lot of friends (cute Thumper !) to help him and have fun so i believe every little kid can have fun with it ! For sure, bigger children and maybe grown ups could be easily bored but that's not the point as the movie is not for them !
