Walt Disney's Bambi The Story and The Film, Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, 1990, First Edition


First edition, published in 1990.

"For the first time ever, the complete film story of Bambi is told in book form and accompanied by unparalleled artwork from the Disney archives. Original film cels, inspired sketches and drawings, and fine art paintings magnificently illustrate Bambi's life: the heralding of his birth, Thumper's friendship, his mother's death, the forest inferno, and how a stronger and wiser Bambi lives to become the new Prince of the Forest. This coming-of-age tale captures the innocence of childhood and the thrill of discovery.
Two of the top Bambi animators, Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas, complement the story of Bambi's life with vivid recollections of the creative struggles that culminated in Walt Disney's favorite film. From 1936 to 1942, live animals were brought to the studio, natural-science lectures were given, photographs of nature were hung on the walls, and hundreds and thousands of sketches, drawings, and paintings were made. The result: the century's most beloved and enduring nature film.
Throughout WALT DISNEY'S BAMBI, beautifully reproduced artwork- most of it never shown or published before combines with the on-screen story of Bambi's life and the behind-the-scenes story of the film's making to entertain the whole family."
