Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
Today we celebrate the 10th birthday of Bambi 2; one of the many straight to home sequels that Disney has released since the turn of the century. Although mainly straight to Home Video release, it was however released to Cinema in some countries like the United Kingdom, France, Austria, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Australia and some other European countries.
Trivia for this movie was found on the fantastic Disney Wikia.
Firstly, let me share the soundtrack for this movie:
- In the original Bambi, Thumper had five sisters. In this film, he only has four.
- Alexander Gould, the new voice of Young Bambi, was also the voice of Nemo in Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo.
- Bambi’s coloring has changed very little since the original film.
- Faline’s coloration, however, is a darker brown than it was before- closer to her adult coloration. Conflicting with this, however, is the fact that Faline is the only fawn in the movie who keeps her spots all the way through.
- This is the final VHS release from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
- Patrick Stewart, who voiced the Great Prince of the Forest in this film, was the only actor who was ever around when the original film was released.
- The film is actually a midquel, and the story takes place in the middle of Bambi.
- This movie was first titled Bambi and the Great Prince, but was changed to Bambi and the Great Prince of the Forest and later Bambi II.
- This movie is considered to hold the world record for longest period of time between a sequel and its predecessor.
- Bambi was released in 1942; Bambi II in 2006, almost sixty-four years later.
- It was one of the last Disney Movie to have FBI Warnings, Previews, and Feature Presatation Logo on VHS.
- Other than French (which is just Bambi II), majority of foreign titles translate to “Bambi 2 – The Great Prince of the Forrest”
Have you seen Bambi II? I don’t think I’ve seen this sequel so shall have to put it on my list!
