To go along with the Disneygraph, the Disney Animation Research Library archives pulled out some very old concept art from famous Disney artist Tyrus Wong, who was the original artist who created the minimalist background painting style used in Bambi. Paul Felix pulled a lot of inspiration for the Disneygraph from the style of Tyrus Wong. We’ve also included a few more pieces from the archive to show off some of the early development of the animals from Bambi as well. Check those out in the gallery below!

Bambi, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, joins the Signature Collection with a variety of new bonus material, including recordings of Walt Disney discussing the challenges and triumphs during the production of Bambi, deleted scenes and characters, stories and effects that Bambi had on the Studio, other films and artists, and much, much more. Additionally, the Digital HD release includes an exclusive, heartfelt feature on the incredible artist, Tyrus Wong, who inspired the film’s soft watercolor backgrounds and beautiful palette. Bambi will take its place in the collection alongside three other great achievements in storytelling, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast and Pinocchio.

Bambi was released in 1942 during World War II and took over five years to make due to its exquisite hand-drawn artwork and attention to detail. Beloved by generations, Bambi holds the No. 3 spot on the American Film Institute’s “10 Top 10,” honoring the 10 greatest animated films of all time. The timeless tale features an adorable young deer named Bambi who explores the wonders and challenges of the woods with his playful pal Thumper, the lovable skunk Flower, and wise Friend Owl – and ultimately fulfills his destiny as prince of the forest.
