Background on Disney's The Jungle Book:
Based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories, inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, and directed by Jon Favreau, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about a man-cub named Mowgli who’s been raised by a family of wolves. Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when the fearsome tiger, Shere Khan, 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, and the free-spirited bear, Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures that don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
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. With screenplay by Justin Marks, produced by Jon Favreau and Brigham Taylor. Mysterious and dense jungles exist all over the world. They’re full of rich vegetation, curious creatures and precious natural resources that inspire adventurous stories. Discover the magic of nature as you step into the tropical wilderness of Mowli’s home to explore the dynamic harmony and tension of the jungle and its inhabitants.
