Bambi II (2006) script

written by Alicia Kirk based on characters created by Felix Salten in his book 'Bambi, A Life in the Woods'; more movie
Your mother
can't be with you anymore.
Friend Owl.
Excuse me, sir.
I hope I'm not intruding, but...
well, I just had to come.
Poor little fellow.
So young to be without his mother.
Well, if I can be of any help...
I could use your help.
Find me a suitable doe to raise Bambi.
Oh, oh, yes.
Of course, yes.
Food's so scarce.
Does can barely feed themselves.
Perhaps you could...
Me? You know as well as I do,
a prince looks after the herd.
Does care for the young.
But you are his father,
and circumstances being what they are...
Until spring.
Oh, excellent.
After all, who better
to raise the young prince
than the great prince himself?
Under the snow.
Beneath the frozen streams
There is life
You have to know
When nature sleeps. She dreams
There is life
And the colder the winter.
The warmer the spring
The deeper the sorrow.
The more our hearts sing
Even when you can't see it
Inside everything
There is life
After the rain.
The sun will reappear
There is life
After the pain.
The joy will still be here
There is life
For it's out of the darkness
that we learn to see
And out of the silence
that songs come to be
And all that we dream of
awaits patiently
There is life
There is life
Good morning.
Bambi, a prince awakens
before the forest does.
If you're late again, I'll have no choice...
What was that?
What was what?
I guess it was my stomach.
Then you should eat.
Oh, well...
I suppose I should
find you something to eat.
Urgh. No, thank you.
Have you ever tried it?
Well, no.
Then how do you know
you don't like it if you've never tried it?
Mm! Mm-hm!
Come along. We have to check
on the other deer in the South Wood.
Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Whoo-hoo!
A prince does not whoo-hoo.
He doesn't?
He certainly does not.
A prince maintains control at all times.
Display dignity.
Walk with pride.
Argh! Who-o-o-a!
I'm OK!
Oh! Oh!
Cold! Cold!
One, two...
Don't you think it'd be better
if we got a little closer?
The distance
makes it easier to spot danger.
But it sure makes it
harder to play with them.
Play is a healthy part
of a young deer's development.
Is that so?
Mm-hm. Mother says so.
One time, Mother and I were out...
A fawn came over and wanted to play...
I think it's best
to leave the past in the past.
A prince does not look back,
only ahead.
Oh. Yes, sir.
Now, come.
We still have a lot of ground to cover today.
Don't fall behind.
Boy, am I glad to see you.
What's wrong?
They've been after me all morning.
Who has?
Oh, big brother!
It's them!
Hello, Young Prince.
Hello, Young Prince.
Oh. Hello.
Have you seen Thumper around?
I think he's over there.
Look, look.
Oh, OK.
I guess we will be leaving, then.
Mama says you're gonna
take us to see the groundhog.
What she says goes.
Well, she's not the boss of me.
If I don't want to, Mama can't make me.
Hi, Mama.
What did your father tell you?
'Bout what?
About playing with your sisters.
Oh, that one.
A family that plays together... um...
stays together...
even if it means
taking your dumb sisters.
I gotta go.
But you can't go.
You can't leave me with the girls.
Come on, Thumper.
You gotta take us to see the groundhog.
Why don't you go with your friends
to see the groundhog?
But I want to stay with you.
Yes, well...
I have to check
on the South Meadow and it's very far.
You go see the groundhog.
I'll meet you there later.
Oh. OK.
I'll meet ya.
Hey, Thumper, wait for me!
You sit by me!
No, no!
Quiet! Um...
First one there's who I sit by.
Hooray! It's gonna be me!
Uh-uh, it's gonna be me!
Sheesh! I'm sure glad
your father let you come.
Oh. He understands.
He-he and I are best pals.
Wake up, Flower.
Wake up.
Come on, Flower.
You're gonna miss the groundhog.
Gosh, I hope
the groundhog sees his shadow...
so I can get back to hibernating.
Attention, everyone. Attention.
Everybody, gather round.
We'll be starting
in just a few moments, yes.
Now, there's plenty of room.
Ma'am, could you just scoot over one?
Very nice.
Oh, Young Prince.
This is a special occasion.
We decided we'll all sit by you.
Greetings, greetings.
Each year we gather round
to watch the groundhog
emerge from his winter slumber,
for if he sees his shadow...
it means more winter!
But if he doesn't...
Spring is on its way!
Now, without any further interruptions...
The groundhog!
The groundhog!
Where's the groundhog?
Groundhog! Groundhog!
Groundhog! Groundhog! Groundhog!
Now, what seems to be the problem?
I'm afraid to go out there.
I'll see my shadow.
Well, that's entirely the point, isn't it?
I don't care.
Must we go through this every year?
Hello, Bambi.
Hi, Faline.
I almost didn't recognize you.
I-I guess it's 'cause
my spots are almost gone.
And my antlers are coming in too.
Can you see 'em?
Um, well...
I don't see anything.
Well, I don't.
Oh, well, yes.
The groundhog!
Oh, why me?
Oh, this is the last year.
My nerves just can't take it anymore.
I see his shadow.
More winter.
More hibernating.
No shadow, no shadow.
Please, no shadow.
Please don't let there be a shadow.
No shadow.
No shadow.
Oh, spring is here!
Spring is here!
Oh, let's sing a gay little spring song,
let's get together and sing
Fa la la, roll de ay,
twit twit awee
Oh, that song.
Oh, I'll never be frightened again.
It looks like
I scared the shadow right out of him.
Did you see the look on his...
Hey! Hey, hey, hey!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Hey!
Where's everybody going?
Forest on fire?
Who are you?
Name's Ronno,
and these are the boys Stab and Jab.
Well, I hope the three of you
have a nice day.
I wouldn't go that way if I were you.
That's where I saw a man.
You saw a man?
There I was, out in the meadow.
Suddenly I heard this voice
luring me in.
"I'm here, I'm here."
See, man's got this stick that can
make his voice sound like one of us.
But I'm way too smart for that,
so I crept up on him...
real quiet.
Then bam!
I knocked him out with my trusty antlers.
That's quite a story.
Oh, you think so?
It's... unbelievable.
Yeah. Unbelievable.
You calling me a liar?
You wanna spar, do ya?
Clobber him, Bambi.
Isn't that a girl's name?
Come on. Let's go.
Just a little, friendly competition.
Coming, Mother.
Yeah. Maybe you should get going.
Jeez, I was only
playing around with him.
Isn't that right, Bambi?
I'm coming!
Ma! How many times
do I have to tell you?
Don't bother me
when I'm trying to make new friends.
Sorry, dear.
You big mama's boy!
Why don't you run home to your mama?
You big old mama's boy!
Coming, Mama.
Gotta go.
See you, Bambi.
So tell me,
what did the groundhog see?
See you, Bambi.
Do you want us to walk you home?
No. My father's coming for me.
Well, it was nice
to see you again, Bambi.
I miss you so much.
Shh. There, there.
It's going to be all right.
You'll see.
Why did you have to go?
Everything in the forest has its season.
Where one thing falls, another grows.
Maybe not what was there before,
but something new and wonderful,
all the same.
But I feel so alone.
I'm always with you.
Even when you can't see me,
I'm here.
I'm here.
It's me.
I'm here.
I'm here.
I'm coming.
I'm here.
It's me.
I'm here.
I'm here.
Run, Bambi!
Run, Bambi!
Go! Now!
But it was Mother.
I heard her voice.
It was one of man's tricks.
I'm sorry.
What if I hadn't gotten there in time?
You could have been...
When I tell you to run, you run.
Never freeze like that, ever!
I'm... I'm sorry.
Let's go home.
She's never coming back, is she?
Friend Owl.
Winter is coming to an end.
You should have little trouble
finding a new home for Bambi.
Big brother!
Oh, big brother!
Big brother!
Every time we turn our backs he's gone.
Search everywhere.
Leave no stone unturned.
How come
we're hiding from your sisters?
I think they're sweet.
Well, you don't have to live with them.
Back up.
Watch it!
Come on! Push harder!
So, where are we off to today?
You're going to stay near the den
where it's safe.
But I'm ready for danger,
for adventure, for... for...
The den.
Yeah. Yeah, good idea.
I'll stay and guard the den.
Hey, Bambi.
What's wrong?
Come on.
You can tell your bestest friend.
Well... my father
never takes me with him anymore.
I guess I'm not
what a prince's son is supposed to be.
If I could just show him.
Show him what?
That I can be brave like him.
If that's all it is, being brave is easy.
I can teach you.
You can?
Sure. Watch this.
I think he's got a hairball.
No, I'm being brave, silly.
The trick is to be scarier
than whatever's scaring you. See?
You look like a squirrel.
Oh, oh, watch me, watch me!
E-e-ew, Flower!
You just found your inner strength.
Oh, gosh!
OK. Now, stand very straight.
Stick out your chest.
Take the deepest breath
you ever took in your whole life.
Now let it out with a big grrr.
You're gonna need a lot of practice.
Come on. Do what I do.
I'm a mountain lion. Raargh!
Oh. Oh!
I'm a... a bear.
I'm a turtle. Grrr.
What? Turtles are so scary.
Come on.
You can do it.
Come on, now.
Watch this. Raargh!
(Flower) Grrr!
(Bambi) Baa!
Yeah, that's it.
Come on. Try it again.
Yeah. That was good.
(Flower) Grrr!
Come on, come on!
(Flower) Grrr!
(Thumper) Raargh!
Yeah, that's it.
(Thumper) Watch this. Raargh!
See? There's nothing to it.
All it takes is one good grrr.
Porky pine!
Get out and stay out,
you trespassing hooligans.
Trashy, muddy paws.
Couldn't you have anything nice?
Well, we can always swim across.
Let's go before he sees you.
No. This is it.
I can show my dad how brave I am.
You better hurry.
Don't worry.
I'll take care of your dad.
And remember what I taught you.
I'm gonna walk across this log.
Get off my property, you pesky squirrel.
I'm not a squirrel.
I'm the young prince.
Ha! Where you going, Princey?
Not this way.
Try again.
Help! Help!
There's this thing,
and it's got these eyes,
and these claws like... grrr!
And it walks around like this.
Hai, hai, hai.
And, well, you gotta see it.
Well, come on!
Ha! Try again!
Try again! Try again!
You don't understand.
I have to get across.
Go around. In my day, we didn't wander
willy-nilly onto someone's property.
We took the long way.
It sometimes took days,
weeks, in the pouring rain,
'cause we had
a little thing called respect.
Bambi, you did it!
Oh, you did it all right.
Behind you! Look out!
Again! (laughs)
Come again!
Hurry up!
It's right over here.
Oops. Wrong way.
Nothing here.
(Bambi) Whoa!
What was that?
I didn't hear anything. Probably a bird.
Yeah, that's it.
A bird. Ow!
Oh, no.
Ha! That'll teach you.
Think twice before you trespass round here
again. Mind your own beeswax next time.
(fish) Grrr, grrr, grrr.
That's the problem with these kids today.
No respect. No respect at all.
What are you looking at,
you big moose?
Bambi, are you OK?
How does it look?
I'm not gonna lie to you.
It ain't pretty.
It's hopeless.
I'm a coward.
No. You're brave.
No one's ever got that far across before.
That's the great thing about me.
I don't feel any pain.
Watch this.
Argh! Oh!
See? Nothing.
(Bambi) Ow!
What was that?
Ah, probably just some poor, dumb animal
caught in a trap. So anyways...
(Bambi) Ow!
I wasn't finished talking about me.
Just one more.
Bambi, what happened?
Bambi got stuck by a porky pine.
A porcupine? Where?
(Thumper) Hold still!
It was nothing.
Are you hurt?
(Thumper) Stop moving!
I'm fine. Really. It's just...
Got it.
Bambi. I thought I recognized that scream.
I'm surprised to see you moving.
It was only a porcupine.
No, no, no.
I'm talking about
how you froze out on the meadow,
and right in front of your father.
Don't feel bad.
If we didn't have cowards, we couldn't
tell who the brave ones are. Hm.
I'm not a coward.
Oh, uh, yeah, sure, sure.
Come on. Let's go.
I'm staying here.
Ah, come on.
Ronno, quit it.
Leave her alone.
Did you say something, Bambi?
No. Uh, well...
I mean, yes.
Leave her alone. Please?
You tell him, Bambi.
Oh, wook. It's the wittle bunny
and the wittle skunk.
Does the young prince play
with the wittle bunny and the wittle skunk?
Run, Bambi!
(Thumper) Whoa!
Other way! Other way!
Turn around! Turn around!
(both) Aaaarrrgh!
We made it.
What's the matter?
Too scared? Uh-huh.
Look at him.
Look at him shaking.
Now who's the baby,
you big baby?
I told you to stay near the den.
When I give you an order,
I expect you to...
How did you...
Did you jump?
Yes, sir.
I didn't make a jump like that
until I had antlers.
Yes. Well...
We should be going...
He's never said
anything nice like that before.
I guess he saw how brave you were.
Gosh, what a jump.
It was like flying.
What's the big deal?
Anyone can make that jump.
Come on.
You jumped further than this yesterday.
I... don't know.
You're not afraid, are you?
(singsong) You're too afraid.
You cannot jump.
Ner-ner-ner ner-ner!
You did it.
Let's do it again.
And this time put it out further.
(Thumper) Come on, Bambi.
You can do it.
Wait till your dad sees this.
Oh. Good morning, sir.
Ahem. Morning, Owl.
Just thought I'd let you know
that the search is off to a flying start.
Oh! Yes, well,
no pun intended...
with the... flying... as I'm an... an owl.
Yes, well.
I've met with several does already
who would make excellent mothers.
(Bambi) Put it out further!
Unless you've changed your mind?
No, I have not.
(clears throat) Uh... uh...
Hey, watch this!
Watch this!
Did I make it?
Yep. You did it.
What exactly are you doing?
I'm practicing my jumps.
Yeah. See?
I see.
I don't get it.
Yesterday he really liked it.
What's he doing, anyway?
I don't know,
but he sure does an awful lot of it.
Well, why don't you ask him?
Oh, he looks busy.
I better not.
Parents like it
when you ask them questions -
lots and lots of questions.
Go on. I'm right behind you.
(Thumper giggles)
Um... uh...
(laughs nervously)
What are you doing?
Oh. Observing.
What's observing?
Well, it's...
It's difficult to explain.
You have to look, listen...
and smell, all at the same time.
Oh, I can do that.
Look, listen, smell.
Try to feel the forest around you.
I don't feel anything.
Does playing in the meadow.
How do you know?
I feel it in my hooves.
If there was danger,
they'd know to stomp, and I'd run to them.
But wouldn't you be scared?
Perhaps, but I would still run to them.
A prince may be afraid,
but he can't let fear stop him from acting.
Wow. You know everything.
Not everything.
Well, the forest is waiting.
Are you coming?
Oh! Sure!
(sisters) Big brother!
Oh, for crying out loud!
Feel the forest.
Feel the forest.
Feel the forest.
Feel the...
Felt it.
by Michelle Lewis)
Why does winter
always make you wait
For a glimpse of sun?
Takes a simple clue or leap of faith
To know the time will come
When long, cold nights
Fade into memory
looking at the morning light
And we will be together
Leaving our cares behind forever
At the first sign of spring
The heat of the sun
will shine right through
And never a moment
comes too soon
As the first sign of spring
Air is getting warmer by the day
As the thaw begins
So put a corner on this page
The leaves are green again
And cloudy skies
I hear it, I hear it!
Are lifting away
right in front of our very eyes
And we will be together
At the first sign of spring
When will I get my antlers?
Won't be long now
if you're anything like I was.
Am I?
Well, only one way to find out.
At the first sign of spring
A new season's begun
For a father and son
And everything grows a little faster
And every moment stretches longer
And it will only get much stronger
We will be together
Leaving our cares behind forever
At the first sign of spring
The heat of the sun
will shine right through
Never a moment comes too soon
As the first sign of spring
Bambi, time to go to sleep.
But I can't sleep.
I'm wide awake.
OK, I'll try.
It was funny
when you chased that cricket,
then there was one more,
then one more.
Yes, yes.
Now, get some sleep.
Flower sleeps all winter.
Why do we sleep?
Everything must get rest.
Some at night, some during the day.
Some not at all.
(Great Prince chuckles)
Mother's resting now, isn't she?
Oh, I forgot.
A prince leaves the past
in the past, right?
That's enough questions for today.
Now, please get some sleep.
Good night.
(Bambi) Come on, sleepyhead.
Remind me never to let you
eat blossoms before bedtime.
Wait. I hear trouble.
What? What?
Hornet nest antler-high.
Very good.
Wait! Now I see trouble.
Where? Where?
Rival stag, dead ahead.
Ah, he's pretty small.
Shouldn't be any trouble.
Oh, yeah?
I can be plenty of trouble.
No, not you.
Yes, me.
Now you've had it.
Now who's got who?
There you two are. Well, yes.
Hello, Friend Owl.
Well, he-hello.
I've... I've been
meaning to speak to you.
I've been looking everywhere.
I thought you'd be by the meadow now.
I'm afraid I got a little...
So I see. Well, no matter.
I usually find what I'm after.
Speaking of which,
there's someone I'd like you to meet.
Great Prince.
Bambi, go to the den.
I've heard so much about you. You know,
your mama and I grew up together.
You did?
Go to the den.
But I want to hear about Mother.
There'll be plenty of time for that
once you're settled in your new home.
You're sending me away?
No. Just...
just let me explain.
But I did everything you said.
I even heard with my hooves.
Bambi, a prince does not...
That's all you care about not me.
Don't speak to me...
I wish Mother was here instead of you!
Oh, my, my, my. Well, I've certainly
made a muddle of things.
No. This is my fault.
Bambi needs a mother.
A prince should not be raising a child.
I'm sure gonna miss you guys.
Don't worry.
We'll see each other again.
We'll come visit you, if it's not too far.
But Mama says it is too far.
And if you get scared, just be scarier
than whatever's scaring you.
It's time to go.
I'll never forget any of you.
Of course not.
Can't forget your bestest friend.
Being a prince means sacrifice.
He must ignore his feelings
and do what is best for others.
Do you understand?
I'll visit you soon.
Be good for Mena.
And never forget...
you are the prince.
Hello, Princess.
You're not leaving
without saying goodbye?
Ah, and I thought we were pals.
I feel for you.
Gosh, I really do.
It's gotta be hard to have a father
that's so ashamed of you
that he'd give you away.
Oh, yeah?
Are you all right?
Both of you get out of here. Now!
Bambi, run!
Run, Bambi!
Faster, Bambi.
Don't look back! Keep running!
Keep running!
Where's Bambi?
Look! It's Bambi!
We gotta help him.
Make your brave face.
This one? Grrr!
This one? Grrr!
No, no.
Make the bravest face
you ever made in your whole life.
This one? Grrr!
That's the one.
Aha! Looky who's here. I guess
somebody didn't learn their lesson.
I learned plenty.
Argh! Argh! Argh!
Get up.
Get up!
A prince does not...
I'm here.
I'm here.
It was raining and thundering.
It didn't look good for the young prince.
There were thousands of dogs,
but Bambi wasn't a bit scared.
They came closer...
and closer.
There was nowhere to go.
Then a dog that was tall as a tree
roared from the shadows,
but Bambi was too fast.
He jumped up...
High in the air.
And then came crashing...
Crashing down.
Right on the big dog's head.
Quiet. I'm telling it.
But the best part was...
The best part was when Thumper helped
Flower make his bravest brave face.
And scared all the dogs away.
That's how it went.
Hooray for Thumper!
Look who's here.
Oh, the young prince.
You know, they're OK for sisters.
Just too bad they're girls.
What do you know, Bambi!
Well, looks like
those antlers are finally coming in.
I hadn't noticed.
Thumper's been telling us quite a story.
Yes, yes.
The one with the thousands of dogs.
What can I say?
I'm a born storyteller.
I'll bet it seemed like a thousand dogs.
(all) Ooh!
Uh... uh... uh...
What's twitterpated?
Well, it's...
I'll tell you when you're older.
Well, well, well.
If it isn't the young prince.
One of these days we'll meet up again,
and when we do...
Argh! Aaargh!
Get it off! Get it off!
Mommy! Get it off!
Mommy! Argh! Argh!
See? I told you turtles were scary.
Oh! I gotta get going.
My dad's waiting for me.
Bye, Bambi.
Ah, Bambi,
you never have time for us anymore.
Yeah. Isn't it wonderful?
Hey, Dad.
Where are we going today?
We're already there.
I never even knew this was here.
Beautiful, isn't it?
This is...
This is where I first met your mother.
I was just about your age.
What were you like?
Me? Well, let me think.
Actually, I was a lot like you.
For it's out of the darkness
that we learn to see
And out of the silence
that songs come to be
And all that we dream of
awaits patiently
There is life
There is
There is life
Look at that cloud
As high as a tree
At least that's how it looks to me
How about you?
What do you see?
What if we see things differently?
Show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
Tell me about the sunrise
Let me see the stars shine
Show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
And I can show you
how it looks through mine
If I had wings
And I could fly
I would tell you all about the sky
How about you?
If dreams came true
What do you imagine you could do?
Oh, show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
Tell me about the sunrise
Let me see the stars shine
Show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
And I could show you
how it looks through mine
And I could show you secret trails
Where no one's ever gone
I bet you've got secrets too
So don't be shy
Come on, come on, come on
Come on and show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
Tell me about the sunrise
Let me see the stars shine
Show me
How the world looks
through your eyes
And I could show you how it looks
Let me show you
how it looks through mine
Come on and show me
Yeah, yeah
Come on and show me
With the healing of a heart
The hillsides grow green
The soil's rich and dark
There's a clear running stream
And the past fades away
With the melting of snow
Spirits lift up
And wild flowers grow
With the healing of a heart
Stars land in heaven
Love lights the dark
With the healing
Of just one heart
Just one heart
With the healing of a heart
The whole world springs anew
Fresh as forgiveness
Sweet as the words
I love you
I love you
It's just so hard to say
I've been waiting
I've been waiting
For a brand new day
With the healing of a heart
Stars land in heaven
Love lights the dark
With the healing of just one heart
Love lights the dark
With the healing of just one heart
Love lights the dark
With the healing
Of just one heart
With the healing of a heart
