‘SNL’: Dwayne Johnson Spoofs Disney Remakes With Action-Packed ‘Bambi’

Love Disney remakes and Dwayne Johnson action pics? Then Johnson’s new project is probably for you.

Saturday Night Live” took aim at Disney live-action remakes, like the recent “Cinderella” and “Maleficent,” with Johnson starring in an action-packed “Bambi” sketch this weekend. The guest host donned a deer suit to play a new gun-slinging, cigar-smoking version of the titular woodland creature.

Johnson’s “Furious 7” co-stars are also apparently in the movie, with Taran Killam starring as Vin Diesel as Thumper, Cecily Strong playing Michelle Rodriguez and Jay Pharoah imitating Tyrese Gibson. The group sets out on a revenge mission against the murderers of Bambi’s mother.

“When I was a boy, they took away my mother,” says Johnson in the clip. “Now it’s time for them to pay… deer-ly.”
