Get ready for the most action-packed Disney movie ever. The Rock and his ‘Furious 7’ castmates are teaming up again for the remake of ‘Bambi’ — sort of. Click to WATCH!

The Rock as a gun-toting Bambi? Count us in! The Furious 7 star starred in a hilarious commercial sketch of Disney’s Bambi on the March 28 episode of Saturday Night Live. His co-stars — by that we mean SNL cast members — also took on the classic roles of Thumper and Flower! Yes, this actually happened.

‘Saturday Night Live’: The Rock Plays Bambi In Funny Remake

“Who the hell are you?” Pete Davidson, dressed as a hunter, asks The Rock.

“I’m Bambi,” The Rock says as he lit up a big cigar. The Rock has on huge ears and a fur vest. You’ve never seen him or Bambi like this before.

The Rock pulls out his guns and just starts shooting. Um, is this actually a Disney movie? 

He vows to get revenge on those who took away his mother when he was a boy. “It’s time for them to pay…deerly.” Never going to get over that deer pun. 

Taran Killam nails his impression of Vin Diesel’s Thumper. Jay Pharaoh takes on Tyrese Gibson as Flower, and Cecily Strong plays Michelle Rodriguez as Faline (the girl Bambi).

A group of Tanglewood hunters want to annihilate Bambi and his friends, but Bambi isn’t going to let that happen. Thumper had one big thing to point out. “I ain’t got friends,” he says. “I got a herd.”

The commercial skit also features a new single by Ludacris called “Wham, Bam, Bambi.” Raise your hand if you want to listen to the whole thing. Oh, you do? Same here.

‘SNL’: The Rock Obama Returns

The Rock returned as host of Saturday Night Live and hadn’t missed a beat. The actor and former WWE fighter reprised his role as “larger and more violent” President Obama.

In a surprising twist, Michelle Obama transformed into “She Rock Obama,” played fabulously by Leslie Jones. Don’t mess with the Rock Obamas!
