The events in the direct-to-video Bambi II transpire during the middle portion of the original film, after Bambi's mother dies but before he grows into an adult. The film concerns Bambi being raised by his father, The Great Prince. Bambi learns his place in the forest thanks to his father and with the help of his friends like Thumper. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lightly amusing but unremarkable."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Maybe Bambi II is II much Bambi."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"This is solid proof that in times of such dire straits, like the direct to video Disney sequels, hope still exists. The endless patience has been worth it."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
"I can't deny the movie is a delight to the eye and may be playful enough to entertain young children. For me, however, the original is enough."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Even if we're going to concede that the narrative space filled by Bambi II needed the filling... surely there was a better story than this one."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"...Bambi II never quite comes off as anything more than a needless sequel."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Bambi II doesn't entirely live up to the original, but how could it?"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Certainly not perfect, but Bambi II isn't a bad DTV midquel."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Playing it safe renders it mediocre, unaligned with its predecessor in spirit, though its thoughtful efforts in visual and musical homage shouldn't go unnoticed."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"While it might have been interesting to see Bambi truly updated for the 21st century with up-to-date computer animation techniques, I rather liked the route they took."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Buzzine Magazine
