Disney The Jungle Book New Trailer & Images
Can I say that I’m still on my D23 Expo high? I mean seeing the first ever previews of the upcoming Disney Live Action Movies and now BAM, Disney The Jungle Book new trailer and images are here! YES! Just released, The Jungle Book is sure to give you jungle fever for the upcoming 2016 Disney Live Action film! Check out the stunning images and watch the new trailer with your family. Here’s the full details:
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer 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 (voice of 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 (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.
The almost 2 minute long teaser trailer definitely has a wide range of jungle creatures coming to life! My kids loved picking out their faves. Aren’t the visuals amazing? And with a stellar cast and amazing director, I’m definitely excited to see my childhood cartoon brought to life! Baloo, Mowgli and the gang are all here. And oh yes, Bill Murray humming Bare Necessities!
