‘SNL’: Dwayne Johnson In Disney’s Live-Action Bambi (Video)

 Dwayne Johnson Saturday Night Live Dwayne The Rock Johnson In Disney's Live-Action Bambi SNL

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did his fourth stint hosting Saturday Night Live last night, where he starred in one of their digital shorts centering on a new Disney film. With Disney riding the live-action train lately with Maleficent, the recent Cinderella, and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast, now comes the adaptation we’ve all been waiting for — Bambi.

Johnson appears as the title character, with his Furious 7 cast mates rounding out the rest of the beloved lineup — Vin Diesel (Taran Killam) as Thumper, Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharoah) as Flower, and Michelle Rodriguez (Cecily Strong) as Faline, and it’s about to get real.

Check out the Bambi sequence here below, along with several others featuring The Rock.

Johnson, whose Furious 7 releases in theaters on April 3, 2015, also did a song and dance number during his opening monologue called “Franchise Viagra” that explains that when he’s brought on to an existing film franchise, he beefs it up. The song includes franchises he’s up for joining, like Fifty Shades of Grey, Frozen, and Avatar 2, so heads up movie producers.

There was also the cold opening that was just waiting to happen — “The Rock Obama,” where he hulks into — you guessed it — President Barack Obama. Definitely a highlight of this episode.

Wrestling fans will enjoy the “WWE Promo Shoot” skit, where The Rock gets a little too personal with the pre-match insults to his opponent, while those with a fondness for onion rings will appreciate “Dinner Date.”

Check out all these and more in the Video section here below.
