From a post on (and obvious from watching the supplementals on Disney's Bambi DVD): "Star Trek: The Next Generation" captain Patrick Stewart will play Bambi's father in the direct-to-DVD sequel, Bambi and the Great Prince of the Forest, due from The Mouse in the first quarter of 2006. Disney has previously tapped a number of its classic franchises for its DTV racket, with mixed (but mostly crappy) results. They have proved that they can create something new and original with franchise potential, like Sky High, so why must they cannibalize so shamelessly? I am a die-hard Disney fan (albeit partial to the artistry of Walt and the Nine Old Men), but enough's enough. March on to the future without climbing over the broken bodies of Cinderella, Peter Pan and 101 overworked and now very inbred Dalmatians.
