It’s a Disney classic with a twist. On Saturday Night Live, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted and starred in the hilarious sketch, a remake of Bambi with an action film twist. SNL castmembers appeared with the Rock as his fellow Fast and Furious 7 castmembers, Vin Diesel (Taran Killam), Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharoah) and Michelle Rodriguez (Cecily Strong).
The Rock plays Bambi, Killam plays Thumper, Pharoah plays Flower and Rodriguez plays Faline.
The badass Bambi is out for revenge for his mother’s death. The beginning of the faux preview shows the Rock confronting a hunter. The weapon-wielding, forest-dwelling creatures are a farcry from Disney’s original story.
With Ludacris singing the theme song and a motto of “Get Bucked”, this skit has gone viral with more than 1.5 million views.
This isn’t the first time Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has appeared on Saturday Night Live.
