Janice Dickinson

Bambi II (2006)

The story of Bambi growing up in the care of his father, The Great Prince of the Forest.

More harmless, but quite entertaining midquel, especially successful in recreating the beloved  characters from the original and adding more humor.

Bambi (1942)

The story of a young deer growing up in the forest.

One of the true masterpieces of animated cinema with wonderfully detailed and endearing characters, telling a story of essential (if a bit dubious) facts about life and nature and with one of the most traumatizing sequences ever presented in a kids' movie.

Bambi****: "Anthropomorphic cartoon feature, one of Disney's most memorable and brilliant achievements, with a great comic character in Thumper the rabbit and a climactic forest fire sequence which is genuinely thrilling. A triumph of the animator's art."

Maltin****: "Walt Disney's moving an exquisitely detailed animated feature...An extraordinary achievement, with the memorably endearing character of Thumper stealing every scene he's in."
