Bambi (1942 film)

Premiered: August 13, 1942
Length: 70 minutes
Directed by: David Hand (Supervising Director)
Produced by: Walt Disney
Distributed by: RKO Radio Pictures

Originally planned as Disney’s second animated film, the production of Bambi was delayed because of challenges animating the deer and the dark content of the story, making it Walt Disney’s fifth animated film. Based on an Austrian tale by Felix Salten titled Bambi, A Life in the Woods, Bambi tells the tale of life in the forest as a young deer grows to be the prince of the forest. Bambi didn’t do well in the Box office due to its release during World War II but made up for it in later releases.
