With new songs and animation in the tradition of the original film, “Bambi II” is a vibrant story about the magical journey of growing up, and a father and son’s growing bonds with one another.

In the new film, Bambi reunites with his father, The Great Prince (voiced by Patrick Stewart), who must now raise Bambi and teach him the ways of the forest.  But the proud parent soon discovers that there is much that he can learn from his spirited son.   

Bonus materials include “Bambi Trivia Tracks,” “Thumper’s Hurry & Scurry” game and “The Legacy Continues” featurette on the making of the film.

Bambi II” will be a widescreen release (1.78:1), with English and French audio and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. SRP will be $29.99, but expect to pay no more than $21.00 in the real world.
