Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Disney has named Bambi as the next animated movie it will give the photo-realistic treatment.
The film will follow the studio's recent remakes of its cartoon classics Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Alice in Wonderland and The Jungle Book.
Live-action versions of The Little Mermaid, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio are also in the works.
Variety reported Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Lindsey Beer are writing the screenplay for a new version of Bambi, the 1942 tale of a motherless deer and his woodland friends, including skunk Flower and bunny Thumper.
No director or voice cast has been announced for it yet.
