Original Bambi Star Says Modern Disney Movies Lack Walt Disney’s Sensitivity

April 26, 2022

For many older fans of Walt Disney’s animated movies, films like Bambi are a world away from some of the modern offerings from the House of Mouse, and that is an opinion shared by Donnie Dunagan. While his name may not be familiar to many, you will have heard Dunagan’s voice as he played the young version of the iconic Disney deer in the 1942 release of Bambi, one of the best-known movies in Disney’s long history. Based on the book by Felix Salten, the life of Bambi plays out from his birth, through the trauma of his mother’s death, to his ascension as prince of the forest, and Dunagan believes that more movies would have been like Bambi if Walt Disney had not passed away in 1966.
