Disney's The Jungle Book Film

I've never read The Jungle Book book or seen the original Disney movie. So watching the first of the live action movies directed by Jon Favreau on Monday was a treat. And a coup for Disney to get their movie out ahead of Warner Bros. Pushed back to 2018.



Neel Sethi carried the whole movie as the only live character. His Mowgli the perfect guide to the jungle.



It is a beautiful place but danger stalks Mowgli in the form of Idris Elba's Shere Khan. Out for revenge. But Ben Kingsley's Bagheera is wise counsel and Mowgli is safe growing up with the wolves. A fun childhood for the sweetest wolf cubs and an odd man cub. But danger grows and Mowgli is forced to seek another life. SSScarlett Johansson is hypnotic as Kaa and will squeeze the life out of you until you submit. Bill Murray is a riot. The honey loving good for nothing Baloo. Who introduces Mowgli to the Bear Necessities of life while living the good life from his man tricks. Still further dangers lurk and not just for a man cub. A baby elephant is in peril. And the self proclaimed King Louie wants the red flower that only Mowgli can make. Christoper Walken wants to be like you.

The perfect movie for all ages. Next up Jungle Book The Musical!
