Disney’s Changes to ‘Bambi’ Raise Concerns


Disney Plans a ‘Live-Action’ Remake of Bambi: A Risky Move?

Disney recently announced its intention to remake its 1942 animated classic, Bambi, as a new “live-action” film. Lindsey Anderson Beer, one of the screenwriters working on the remake, has hinted at changes in the plot to address evolving sensibilities, particularly around the theme of parental death. This decision has stirred discussions among Disney fans and film enthusiasts.

While some Disney live-action remakes, like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, have been well-received, others have faced criticism for various reasons. The 2010 remake of Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton, received mixed reviews. Subsequent remakes, such as The Jungle Book and Dumbo, didn’t resonate strongly with audiences. Aladdin faced challenges in living up to its beloved animated predecessor, while Mulan received praise for its visuals but was criticized for omitting iconic songs.

The Lion King (2019) is a notable example of a “live-action” remake that divided opinion. Despite its stunning CGI, it was debated whether it truly qualified as live-action, given its animal characters. This raises questions about the term “live-action” in Disney’s remakes.

One key concern with remaking Bambi is the risk of altering its emotional core. The original animated film uses cute animal characters to convey profound themes, such as the inevitability of death and the challenges of growing up. These themes are presented in a way that is accessible and relatable for young audiences.

Attempting to modernize Bambi’s values may involve addressing environmental issues, echoing themes explored in films like FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992). However, some argue that such changes could dilute the film’s original message and emotional impact.

Despite reservations, some Disney fans will likely watch the live-action Bambi when it’s released. Still, the decision to remake the classic raises questions about the motivations behind such adaptations and the potential for them to lose the essence of the original stories.
