Disney has been on a live-action remake kick lately with films like Maleficent and the upcoming Cinderella. In traditional form SNL has decided to poke fun at this current trend with their parody of one of Disney’s most well known animations, Bambi.
This spoof works on a variety of different levels. While it is depicting a movie that doesn’t need to be in live-action in the first place it also pokes fun at the habit hollywood has of making everything more “gritty.” Of course the selection of the cast would be the biggest clue as to what a film like this was trying to do.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson works this skit well and delivers the cheesy lines well. The funniest thing about all this is how serious he looks in such a ridiculous idea. Enjoy the skit above.
