Walt Disney acquired the film rights to Felix Salten's novel "Bambi- A Life in the Woods", in April 1937. Disney
began work on crafting an animated adaptation immediately. The story need to be softened to appeal to Disney
family audiences The artists also discovered that it would be challenging to animate deer and other animals
realistically. The Disney Studio was moving to new premises and several other projects put "Bambi" on hold.

Finally in 1939, production on "Bambi" began in earnest. Walt demanded that this film be natural and beautiful.
Soft impressionistic forest backgrounds were one of the many features that made Bambi an artistic marvel. Disney
animators spent four months learning to draw deer naturally. Work proceeded slowly, but the end result was a
beautiful and incredibly emotional film that is still fresh to audiences today.

Sadly, little art from the film has been saved but we are proud to showcase this unusual work from the classic film.
