Winnie The Pooh and Peter Pan are already taking a horror movie turn – and now Bambi is joining them. More here.
It’s been a bit of a year for apparently wholesome family characters taking a horror turn. Winnie The Pooh and Peter Pan are just two of the iconic children’s stories getting the horror film treatment at the moment, thanks to the upcoming Winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey and Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare.
Now, we can add a third to the list, as news of a Bambi horror film is revealed.
Bambi: The Reckoning is set to take the famous fawn into dangerous territory. While certain scenes in the original film are certainly horrific, not least the death of Bambi’s mother, the new reimagining is set to take things to even darker extremes.
Produced by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who is also behind the aforementioned adaptations, director Scott Jeffrey told Dread Central that “the film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story we all know and love. Finding inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wilderness. Prepare for Bambi on rabies!”
Just to be clear, this is not a Disney-backed production. This image is illustrated with an image of Disney’s Bambi though, which is available on the studio’s Disney+ streaming service, and it likely just as traumatic as what Frake-Waterifeld and his team come up with.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
