One of the most iconic short films in the history of animation is Marv Newland’s “Bambi Meets Godzilla,” which focuses on what would happen if the cute, orphaned doe comes face to face with the terrifying, nuclear-infused force of nature. Suffice to say that if you found the original Bambi film to be tragic, you’re not likely to agree with how Newland’s short ended.
The sad thing about Bambi Meets Godzilla, outside of the ending, is the fact that almost all watchable versions on the net are low quality transfers, and weren’t really a joy to watch. This encouraged Coda Shetterly (@KindredCoda) to produce a frame for frame 1080p re-creation of the famous short. Watch it below:
You can compare it to the original:
Now that the original has been recreated, how about a reimagining? Throw some colors in there, make it CG, or use realistic models? The possibilities are endless for animators who have the skill for it.
