Disney’s ‘Bambi’ remake to be directed by Sarah Polley

Disney fans get excited as The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline confirm that Canadian filmmaker Sarah Polley is in talks to direct the live-action, ‘Bambi.’ Earlier this year, Sarah Polley won the Oscar for best-adapted screenplay for her film, ‘Women Talking.’

The project remains in development and would be created with CGI-generated animals voiced by celebrities, just like ‘The Lion King’ and ‘Jungle Book.’ Deadline reported that the studio first showed its intention to remake Bambi for live-action back in early 2020, and it will feature music from six-time Grammy-winning Kacey Musgraves.

The most recent draft of the script has been written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, and Chris and Paul Weitz’s Depth of Field will be producing the movie.

The original animated movie was released in 1942 and is about a young fawn named Bambi who is to become the next prince of the forest like his father. As he grows up in the woods with his two best friends, a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower, he learns about friendship, love, and protecting his loved ones.
‘Bambi’ is the fifth animated movie by Disney and is considered one of the cornerstones of Disney’s legacy.
