Disney have been all over the live action remakes in the last few years. The Lion King, The Jungle Book and most recently The Little Mermaid have all gotten modern remakes using computer generated animals instead of animated ones.
But we're in the very early days of this Bambi remake, so we don't know if Sarah Polley will take the visuals in a new direction!
Twitter was quick to react to the news of the 1942 classic getting a live-action makeover.

Disney want us to experience Bambi's pain again and again.
Next, they'll make it a VR game and make me take the shot myself. https://t.co/3An3CnFfKK
