Bambi is set to get The Lion King CG treatment.

Disney is leaving no stone unturned as it continues to harvest its back catalogue of animated hits for new movies. And the latest to bubble to the top is a live action take on its 1942 classic, Bambi.

The film is going to follow a similar path to the recent Disney takes on The Jungle Book and The Lion King, in that it’s effectively going to be an animated remake of the animated film. Similar photorealistic techniques are going to be used for the film.

Screenwriters have been hired for the movie too. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Lindsey Beer (who have respectively worked on the screenplays for Captain Marvel and Chaos Walking) are the scribes adapting the original film into the new one.

There’s no word yet on a director, but we’ll keep you posted as hear more.
