New Release: Bambi II Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray

Bambi IIAfter releasing its classic animated movie Bambi on high-definition Blu-ray in March, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is delivering the sequel to Blu-ray on Aug. 25. Bambi II won’t be in the studio’s Diamond line, as the original film was, but will instead be a Special Edition DVD, Blu-ray/DVD combo and movie download.

The 2006 movie, which was screened in some theaters overseas but premiered on disc here, features the voice of Patrick Stewart (X-Men) as Bambi’s father, the Great Prince, and Alexander Gould (TV’s Weeds) as Bambi. In the family film, the Great Prince teaches Bambi how to survive in the forest, and Thumper the rabbit, Flower the skunk and Owl are around too.

The discs and download will come with a bunch of special features, both new and exras from the earlier DVD release.
