The Jungle Book Teaser Trailer
Journey into the heart of jungle in the teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming live action adventure The Jungle Book. View trailer below.
The Jungle Book is an all-new, live-action/CGI epic adventure about Mowgli (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 (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 (Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), a python who’s seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
I remember watching Disney’s animated version of The Jungle Book many times when I was little. Thus, when I found out they were making a live action version, I was estatic, but still have a lingering feeling about this adapation, similar to ones I’ve previously had with Disney’s recent live action adaptations like Alice in Wonderland, Oz The Great & Powerful, and Maleficent. Regardless, I am interested to see how this movie sizeable up to animated version.
The Jungle Book arrives in theaters next year on April 15th, 2016.
