|Walt Disney acquired the film rights to Felix Salten's novel "Bambi-A Life in the
Woods" in April 1937. Artists 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 plus 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.
Very little art from the film has been saved but we are proud to offer this unusual
work from the classic film.
