The Revenge of Bambi: the SNL Parody of Disney Live-Action Films Starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson [VIDEO]
Hunters killed Bambi’s mom and now it’s payback time. They will pay “deerly,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says in the Saturday Night Live parody.
In the parody, which imagines the classic 1942 Disney movie as a live-action film, Johnson plays the vengeful Bambi, a badass flesh-and-blood version of the cute and charming cartoon deer. To get his revenge, the gun-wielding, muscular, and tattooed Bambi enlists his dear friends from the forest/the Fast and Furious movies. Vin Diesel (Taran Killam) stars as Thumper, Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharoah) as Flower, and Michelle Rodriguez (Cecily Strong) as Faline.
It’s time for the hunters to become the hunted! (And maybe it’s also time for Disney to hit pause on its live-action movies.)
