It doesn't matter how old you are. Just like many other Disney films, you are going to absolutely love Bambi. The animation is beautiful, the characters are great, and the story is so emotional! What a lot of people will remember is the death of Bambi's mother. She was shot by a human off-screen, which has lead to many tears being shed over the past 73 years. Very young children may find it scary or upsetting due to the death of Bambi's mother, the forest fire near the end, and other stuff. Should your child watch it? Definitely! It was absolutely breathtaking in 1942, and it still is today.
