Disney is reportedly having a NEW movie in the works, but fans aren’t so sure it’s a good idea.
The legendary studio is said to be working on a live-action remake of Bambi.
Accordingly meetingOscar winner Sarah Polley was chosen to direct the project.
The film will reportedly be a musical and feature music by country singer Kacey Musgraves.
The project seems to be in its infancy so far, but already has producers and script drafts on board.
However, many critics on Twitter seemed keen to stop the film before it really got going.
Some social media users pointed out that they would like more original Disney content, while others feared the death of Bambi’s mother would be even more “traumatic” in a live-action.
In response to the news, one person tweeted: “Can people please stop coming here? They won’t stop until you fools stop giving them your money.”
In response, another said: “Holy crap we gave them so much money they’re going to murder a deer right on camera.”
A third person pleaded: “Please stop doing live action films. It’s the perfect way to ruin our childhood.”

“Bambi, this is awful, I couldn’t even watch the original,” claimed another person.
A fifth critic snipped: “Has anyone got any new creative ideas? Or is this just another attempt to stop paying writers and creatives their worth?”
Another person cried: “No. Stop. You’ve traumatized enough kids with the cartoon version. My God.”
“Seeing a deer being shot in an animated cartoon was traumatic enough as a kid… I can’t even imagine how kids would react to this live action,” added a recent commenter.
FOR THE SECOND TIME LUCKY
Bambi wouldn’t be the first classic Disney film to get the live-action remake treatment.
Most recently, “The Little Mermaid” came to our cinemas.
The remake starred Halle Bailey as Ariel and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric.
The duo was joined by a host of other stars including Melissa McCarthy, Daveed Diggs and Awkwafina.
Aladdin also received a remake in 2019, with Guy Ritchie’s version grossing more than £800 million (about US$1.1 billion) at the box office.
The film is slated for a sequel, which will see Will Smith return as a ghost in an even bigger role.
