Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

  • Looks way better than I anticipated. I’d forgotten it was Favreau. I like him so, like with CINDERELLA, I expect a pleasant surprise. I love Reitherman’s version so much though. You guys seen Sabu’s and the soviet Mowgli series? Both so recommended.

  • I think this looks FANTASTIC. And the voice cast is A+

  • KBacon

    Baloo (Murray) whistling Bare Necessities was cool

  • André

    Way more excited for Andy Serkis’s version with Bale, Cumberbatch and Cate Goddamn Blanchett et al.

    This looks very much like yet another bland, well-crafted Live Action Disney film.

    Let’s hope it’s more “Cinderella” than “Alice in Wonderland”.

    I’m certain there will not be a single surprising thing about this film, narrative-wise.

    “… a single surprising THING…”

    Sorry, Ryan 😛
