One of the highlights at Disney’s D23 Expo last month was The Jungle Book footage that director Jon Favreau previewed. On Monday, you’ll get to see what all the buzz was about as the first trailer will hit.
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.”
Favreau talked about bringing the classic animated film to life and what a thrill it was to finally see it all on the big screen after all his work. He also talked about finding the right kid to carry a movie like this and how wonderful Sethi was to work with. Sethi told us how excited he was to work with big names like this and Kingsley talked about bringing the humanity to a character like this and why working with Sethi in person made a huge difference.
The Jungle Book will hit theaters on April 15, 2016.
