Disney is giving the live-action treatment to one of it’s most iconic films. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bambi is getting a remake.

The last few years have seen several Disney remakes based on some the biggest films from the studio during its golden era in the ’90s, including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin and the upcoming Mulan. This time Disney is taking it way back to one of its originals with a remake of the 1942 film Bambi.

While there has been no official announcement by Disney, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel, Tomb Raider) and Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, Chaos Walking) have been hired to write the new “live-action” version.

According to the publication, the studio will be utilizing the same methods used to produce previous remakes staring animals, like The Lion King and The Jungle Book. While the film will appear to be live-action it will only be made to look that way using advanced CG technology.
