Bambi II is a 2006 animated direct-to-video film, a followup to the 1942 film Bambi. The story takes place in the middle of the original film, with Bambi's father, the Great Prince of the Forest, dealing with the now motherless Bambi until another doe comes to take his place in spring. The film celebrated its 13th anniversary on January 26, 2019.
- If we didn't have cowards, we couldn't tell who the brave ones are appeared!
- It looks like I scared the right out of him!
- Hey! I wasn't finished talking about me!
- What's the big deal? Anyone can make that jump.
- Where's everybody goin'? Forest on fire?
- You wanna spar, do ya?
- There I was, out in the meadow. Suddenly, I heard this voice luring me in. "I'm here, I'm here." See? Man's got this stick that can make his voice sound like one of us. But, I'm way too smart for that. So, I crept up on him real quiet. Then, bam! I knocked him out with my trusty antlers.
- (To Bambi about his father)
- I feel for you. Gosh, I really do. It must be hard to have a father that is so ashamed of you, he'd give you away.
- Excuse me, sir. I hope I'm not intruding, but... well, I... I just had to come. Poor little fellow. Too young to be without his mother... Well, if I can be of any help...
- Food so scarce, does can barely feed themselves. Perhaps you could...?
- You are his father. And circumstances being what they are...
- Oh, excellent. After all, who better to raise the young prince than the great Prince himself?
Great Prince of the Forest
- I think it's best to leave the past in the past. A Prince does not look back. Only ahead.
- I told you to stay nearly the den. When I give you an order, I expect you to--
- Everything must get rest, Bambi. [yawning] Some at night, some during the day. [grumbling slightly] Some not at all.
- [yawning & grumbles to Bambi's annoying yack]
- Remind me to never let you eat blossoms before bedtime.
- (While riding on Bambi's back, Thumper turns to Ronno)
- What's the matter? Too scared? Uh-huh. Look at him. Look at him shaking. Now who's the baby, you big baby?
- [Bambi has a dream in which he meets his mother]
- Bambi: I miss you so much.
- Bambi's Mother: Shh. There now. It's going to be all right. You'll see.
- Bambi: Why'd you have to go?
- Bambi's Mother: Everything in the forest has its season. Where one thing falls, another grows. Maybe not what was there before, but something new and wonderful all the same.
- Bambi: But I feel so alone.
- Bambi's Mother: I'm always with you. Even when you can't see me, I'm here.
- Thumper: I'm a mountain lion! Raarrgh!
- Bambi: Oh! I'm a - a bear! [Bambi bleats And screams, meow, whistle]
- Flower: I'm a turtle! Rrrrggh! [Bambi and Thumper look at him oddly] What? Turtles are soooo scary.
- Porcupine: That's the problem with these kids today. No respect. No respect at all. [to The Great Prince] What are you looking at, you big moose?
- Thumper: [after Bambi leaves to spend time with the Great Prince] Aww, Bambi. You never have time for us anymore.
- Faline: Yeah. Isn't it wonderful?
[Bambi gets into an argument with his dad]
- Great Prince: Bambi, a prince does not...
- Bambi: That's all you care about, not about me!
- Great Prince: Don't you speak to me like that!
- Bambi: I WISH MOTHER WAS HERE INSTEAD OF YOU!!!
- [runs off, upset]
- [Last lines]
- [The Great Prince shows Bambi a beautiful area of the forest]
- Great Prince: This is... This is where I first met your mother.
- Bambi: Really?
- Great Prince: Yes. I was just your age.
- Bambi: What were you like?
- Great Prince: Me? Well, let me think. Actually, I was a lot like you.
- Flower: Gosh, I hope the groundhog sees his shadow... [yawns] so I can get back to hibernating.
- Bambi: When will I get my antlers?
- Great Prince Won't be long now if you're anything like I was.
- Bambi: Am I?
- Great Prince: One way to find out.
- Thumper: [sing song tone] You're too afraid! You cannot jump! Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah...
- Thumper: Nah, nah, nah-- [looks up] AAAH!
- Bambi: Did I make it?
- Thumper: [muffled] Yep. You did it.
- Thumper's sisters: Big brother!
- Thumper: Oh, for crying out loud!
