A Live-Action Bambi Remake Is In The Works And Our Hearts Can't Cope
Disney fans, we have some bittersweet news - a live-action Bambi remake is in the works, but yes, it will feature *that* scene. Sob.
According to Deadline, Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Lindsey Beer are teaming up to write the script, which let's face it, is guaranteed to be a tear-jerker.
While the original 1942 movie was based on Felix Salton's 1923 novel Bambi, a Life in the Woods, the 21st century remake will see the much-loved characters come to life once again - this time in CGI.
It's set to follow the same narrative, focussing on a fawn learning how to navigate into adulthood with the help of his pals, Thumper and Flower, after tragically losing his mother.
Disney is yet to release any information about the remake, so it's currently unknown when production will begin.
The new Bambi film will be produced by production company, Depth of Field (Chris Weitz, Paul Weitx and Andrew Miano) who are also working on the remake of Pinocchio.
The exciting news comes after the success of Disney's previous remakes, with Lion King making £1.27bn at the worldwide box office, while Jungle Book brought in £739m.
Disney fans will be treated to another remake in a matter of weeks, with Mulan hitting cinemas on 27th March.
And mega Disney fans will be pleased to hear streaming service, Disney+ is *finally* coming to the UK.
It has now been confirmed that fans will be able to subscribe from the 24th March, with the service available for £5.99 per month or £59.99 annually.
The streaming platform is packed with over 500 films as well as 7,500 episodes, with classics including Pinocchio (1940), Fantasia (1940), the original Bambi (1942) and its first animated feature film Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs (1937).
One of Disney's upcoming remakes, Lady and the Tramp will also launch exclusively on the platform.
It certainly seems there's a LOT to look forward to for Disney fans...
