The animated film Bambi from 1942 gets a live action version. Among others script writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet from the film Captain Marvel will provide the script, Variety reports on Friday.

The production for the new Bambi is in the hands of Disney, which previously made new versions of The Jungle Book and The Lion King with the help of the computer . When the new Bambi appears is not yet known.

The original Bambi animation film was based on the book Bambi, a life in the woods . The Austrian author Felix Salten published the story in 1923 about the deer being separated from his mother.

Since 2010, Disney has redesigned several of its own animation films, starting with Alice in Wonderland . This earned the film studio around 8 billion euros worldwide.
