Watch: First Trailer for Disney's New 'Jungle Book'
17 September 2015
Disney has now proudly debuted the first official teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's new The Jungle Book movie, starring Neel Sethi as Mowgli. The trailer is only a first glimpse. However it still looks to be a very spectacularly-realized CGI movie, especially with all of Mowgli's animal friends looking incredibly realistic.
The voice cast includes Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa. The movie is also featuring Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Lupita Nyong'o and Emjay Anthony. The first footage is very impressive. I'm can't wait to see more of what it looks like beyond just a few quick shots thrown together. You should definitely take a look.
The director of Jungle Book is Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens, Elf, Zathura, Made). The script is written by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li), based on Rudyard Kipling's classic book of the same name. The story of the film follows a young boy named Mowgli, a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. He will experience a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Christopher Walken, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray voice the animal characters.
On April 15th, 206, Disney will release The Jungle Book in theaters.
