After Winnie the Pooh or Peter Pan, it is Bambi who will shed blood in a new film radically different from the original work. The hunter responsible for his mother’s death has cause for concern.
What’s going on at Disney? Usually ultra-protective with its franchises, Mickey’s firm no longer hesitates to transpose them into a more adult universe. Next on the list? Baby !
Bambi will also become a horror movie
A new fashion is taking shape within Disney and it consists in producing horror films with characters that are nevertheless harmless at the base. As proof, two feature films are already in production: Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey and Peter Pan Neverland Nightmare. And it will continue…
In a chat with Dread Central, director Scott Jeffrey (The Bad Nun, Don’t Speak…) announced the horror movie Bambi: The Reckoning. A much darker reading in which the young fawn will be able to take revenge on the hunter who killed his mother.
The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story we all know and love. Taking inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that roams the wilds. Get ready to see an enraged Bambi!
In summary, the young fawn will attack the hunter responsible for this murder, even massacre other hunters who approach too close to him.
Rhys Frake-Waterfield is also on the project as a producer, who is already on the horror films Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan.
