The Disney classic comes to life in the new trailer for the live-action adaptation of 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.
Even though this trailer is consider a trailer for the “Super bowl” aka (Big Game as the YouTube video calls it), I consider this to be the theatrical trailer of the movie. This new trailer offers plenty of new footage and hearing all the voice talents speak for the first time (including Neel Sethi’s Mowgli). Personally, I loved the Jungle Book when I was growing up and I’m can’t wait to see this movie when it comes out.
“That’s a song about the good life”
The Jungle Book comes to theaters this spring on April 15th, 2016.
