The Jungle Book (Trailer)


From the company that brought you Pirates of the Caribbean (aka, Disney) comes the first look at the latest entry of live-action Disney cartoons, The Jungle Book and I gotta say, it looks pretty awesome. While I’ll probably never be completely sold on CGI the animals on display here (save Kaa, the snake) look pretty amazing. I also love the sprawling, epic, action packed angle the film is taking then they tie it all back in at the last second with some nice Baloo the bear action. Count me in when the film drops this April. More info below…

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Chef,” “Iron Man,” “Elf”), 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 Johannsson), 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.
