Disney’s Bambi is getting a live action remake

Keeley Ryan

It feels like just about every Disney classic has gotten the remake treatment lately.

From Beauty and the Beast to Dumbothe Jungle Book to Aladdin, many of Disney’s most beloved characters have gotten a big revamp on their return to the big screen

The latest animated classic to get the live-action treatment is none other than Bambi. 

Deadline report that Bambi, Flower and Thumper will be bound for the big screen, with The Farewell team Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano set to produce under their production company Depth of Field.

Captain Marvel’s Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Sierra Burgess Is a Loser’s Lindsey Beer are set to write the script.

Depth of Field are also said to be working on the revival of Pinocchio. 

Robert Zemeckis is set direct the reboot of the classic tale of a living puppet who, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.

Other Disney remakes on the way include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Little Mermaid,  Peter Pan, The Sword in the Stone and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

There’s also Prince Charming, a retelling of the Cinderella story which “takes a look at the iconic prince from the point of view of his brother, who never quite lived up to the family name.”
