This reminds me of the Grimm fairy-tale called "Brother & Sister."
It's a story about two siblings that escaped from their abusive stepmother, not knowing that their stepmother was also a dark (evil) witch, she cursed the springs of the forest (whoever drinks out of those springs will turn into the animal it chose).
And the little brother drank from the "Spring of Deer" and turned into a deer.
That would be cute. Personally I'm not fond of the idea of them as a couple, because they are of different species, but I have yet to watch all of Bambi so I do not know if they suit each other in personality. I am also VERY fond of the idea of them as good friends. I think they'd take to each other, and they'd have some very interesting adventures. It would be an interesting crossover. I wish Disney did more crossovers like this: [link]
Then we'd be able to see how Belle and Bambi interact
It still amazes me how much effort was put into that show. they animated every character so beautifully! ah! I miss shows like that. it's a shame we don't have 2D animation as much as we should any more.
any way, Belle and The Great Prince's relationship is very much based on friendship, the idea behind any romance that would be between them was based on a story I was conceptualizing about a woman who was cursed to turn into a doe, and during that time fell in love with a stag. when love breaks the curse and she's human again, he feels betrayed and she leaves, later shunned from her village as well. but the two meet again and still care for each other. the time they spent in separate forms tested their hearts and through a long winter they watched over one another until with the changing of spring came her transformation back to a doe. (happily ever after ending goes here )
and if you haven't seen all of Bambi, I strongly recommend watching that AND the sequel Bambi 2, which really focuses on the relationship between Bambi and his father The Great Prince of the Forest. they're cute and beautifully done. also Patrick Stewart voices the Great Prince, so the movie is made 100 times better ^^
I know! I really miss the old Disney channel: Darkwing Duck (I have a feeling you'd love Negaduck: [link]), Duck Tales, Goof Troop, even some of the earlier live action shows, the pre-Hannah Montana ones (Lizzie McGuire, That's so Raven), but especially the animated ones. I am kinda torn: I love Disney/Pixar movies, but I miss the old Disney Princess style, and most other Western animated companies make 2D shows that look like this: [link]
Wait, isn't Bambi the Great Prince, because he inherits the title?
Oops . . . missed up the deer . . .
OMG that story is so beautiful!!!
WRITE IT!!! WRITE IT!!!
Reminds me a bit of the 2nd Brother Bear movie, where the girl gave up her humanity to be with the bear (although in the first movie the guy gave up his humanity to care for a baby bear . . . so there's a lot of that . . .)
OMG CAPTAIN PICARD!!! I can see why you like the Great Prince/Belle pairing then. Any girl would love to get some Picard And any guy would like to get some Belle
I'm sure that Bambi would probably inherit his father's title, but we never quite see him get to that point in the films, so for now that name usually still refers to his dad.
I'M SO GLAD YOU LIKE IT! that story idea is one of my favorites, and I need to get it written. hopefully over the summer, but we'll see ^^
Disney does a lot of transformation stories it seems. Brother Bear, Beauty and the Beast, The Emperor's New Groove, Princess and the Frog, Brave. and they all work perfectly to help the character along on their journey of discovery ^^
A moment of silence for Darkwing, Ducktails and Lizzie McGuire . . .
aha . . . I always mentally confused the two deer than. I thought that was his grown up form.
There's quite a few similarities between Brother Bear 2 and Beauty and the Beast (except in Beauty and the Beast they end up human), but there's quite a few differences with the others: in Brother Bear 1 the main character turns into a bear to learn the value of bear-hood and stays a bear to take care of Koda, partially because he is responsible for having made Koda an orphan . . . I saw the Emperor's New Groove, but I don't remember it . . . I think there was no love involved. Brave is the reverse of Brother Bear: the mother becomes a human in the end, although it is considered partially a knock off, at least by a lot of my friends, however I have yet to see it to judge for myself. Princess and the Frog is probably also similar to Beauty and the Beast/Brother Bear 2 if you think about it, since love effects the transformations . . . However I know its a combination of the Frog Prince and the Frog Princess into one fairytale . . .
You're right, they're all pretty good stories and interesting for character development.
very true. though I wouldn't call Brave a Brother Bear knock off at all. the only similarity is the animal they turn into. that movie focuses on mending the relationship between a mother and daughter, where Brother Bear is more a journey of one man's self discovery. but of course you should see it for yourself and then judge. (it's wonderful. one of my very favorite animated films right now)
lol nothing says they're doing anything other then enjoying each other's company. besides, kinky shit? she frickn' fell in love with the beast. THE BEAST! I don't think that sort of thing applies to her.
