The Disney “Bambi” Live Action Spoof from SNL is More Relevant Now than Ever

Considering the rate at which Disney is going to be pumping out live-action movies in the next 5-10 years I thought it was the perfect time to repost this video from a 2015 episode of SNL that Dwayne Johnson hosted.   It was a spoof trailer for a live-action Bambi and when you see it now you realize how perfectly it was executed.   The spoof live action film stars Dwayne Johnson as Bambi, Vin Diesel (Taran Killam) as Thumper, Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharoah) as Flower and Michelle Rodriguez (Cecily Strong) as Faline.

I don’t think SNL’s had a better Disney spoof than this.  It hits on all points not to mention the impression by Jay Pharoah was spot on as usual.   I’m not sure if the Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson feud was going on at the time but the whole Vin Diesel talking as if you can’t understand him angle was fantastic.   There’s just everything to love about this.

As far as what Disney will actually do with a live-action Bambi, no one can predict it.  I personally think they shouldn’t even attempt it.  Bambi’s actually one of the few films that hasn’t been mentioned yet (neither has Pinocchio).  Maybe Disney will decide to pass on Bambi.  I hope they do.  In the meantime check out The Rock as Bambi below:
