Another Disney classic is getting a remake. 

A live-action remake for Bambi has been officially announced. 

Screenwriters Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser) will pen the screenplay for the remake of the 1942 animated feature. Producing the new iteration are Chris and Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano via their Depth of Field banner. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter the live-action remake of Bambi will be similar to The Jungle Book and The Lion King, which were not live-action per se but certainly made to look very lifelike. 

Other animated classics in the works are — The Little Mermaid, Pinicchio, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, Lilo & Stitch and Hunchback of Notre Dame.
