The director Sarah Polley is now in talks to helm Disney’s live-action remake of the cartoon classic “Bambi,” which was originally released in 1942. This movie is the latest one that is scheduled to undergo the treatment at the studio.
Polley is perhaps most recognized for her work on the drama titled “Women Talking,” which was released in 2022 and won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay earlier this year.
According to a report from an entertainment news site called Deadline, the live-action movie that is now in the early development stage at Disney would contain songs from country music sensation Kacey Musgraves, who has won six Grammy Awards.
Disney’s ‘Bambi’ remake may be directed by Sarah Polley.
The first film adaptation of “Bambi” followed the adventures of a young deer cub named Bambi as he discovered his place in the woods.
Bambi grows of adulthood alongside his two best friends, a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower, as he experiences the highs and lows that come along with maturing into an adult.
Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster are responsible for the script’s most recent revision, which they authored. The Weitz brothers’ company, Depth of Field, will provide financial support for the film.
Beginning with the release of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in 2010, Disney has been methodically redoing its animated masterpieces. This strategy has been in place for the last several years.
To this point, it has brought back classic movies including “Lady and the Tramp,” “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Lion King,” “Mulan,” and most recently, “The Little Mermaid.”
