USA Today mentions that Bambi’s Platinum Edition DVD will be released on March 1, a week earlier than expected. As for the film’s digitally restored video and surround sound, Disney home video executive Gordon Ho remarks, “It’s amazing how much more vivid and clear it looks from the color and clarity standpoint.” As for the DVD’s bonus features, the main prize may be “Walt’s Annotated Bambi,” which molds a vocal reading of the studio founder’s own notes from the film’s development with footage and production drawings. “Viewers will experience, firsthand, the production of Bambi as it is happening through Walt’s words,” Ho says. Also included are additional scenes — in various stages of development — and a sneak peek at the upcoming Bambi II: Great Prince of the Forest.
