Something to Get Thumped-up About: Disney’s Latest Plan for a Live-Action Remake of an Animated Classic

“In the latest move to turn its animated classics into live-action features, Disney has set its sights on one of its most storied: ‘Bambi,’” report Borys Kit and Mia Galuppo in a scoop for The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog.

The story says, “The studio has hired Geneva Robertson-Dworet (‘Captain Marvel,’ ‘Tomb Raider’) and Lindsey Beer (‘Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,’ ‘Chaos Walking’) to pen the screenplay for the live-action remake.”

“The original movie, released in 1942, told the story of a young fawn named Bambi as he learns his place in the forest,” the article continues, adding, “With his two best friends, a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower, Bambi comes of age as he faces the joys and heartache — cue the loss of a parent — of growing up.”


  1. Let’s hope this goes better than Dumbo… which should have been titled, “The Anti-Circus, Circus Movie… with a cameo by Dumbo”. What a train wreck that was.

    Bambi is one Disney classic that does not need to be remade with a new, PC heavy storyline.

    The original’s moralizing is more than enough. Don’t mess with success.

  2. Do ANY of the Disney classics need to be remade?? I’ve yet to see any that have been good with the notable exception of the Jungle Book which was passable, but not great.
