Disney’s The Jungle Book

Written by: | Published: April 09, 2016 | Updated: April 09, 2016

Disney’s The Jungle Book is opening in Theaters April 15th, 2016. This is an all-new live-action movie about our beloved Mowgli, (played by Neel Sethi) a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. Mowgli sets off on an adventure-filled journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. This is not the animated movie you watched as a kid… this is a completely new film with not to be missed photorealistic computer generated imagery (CGI) scenery and animals. I can’t wait to see what looks to be an another amazing Disney movie!

I have the opportunity for you to see a special advance screening of Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK.

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.
