First Look At Disney’s Live-Action Jungle Book
This could have really gone either way. With Disney’s pedigree and a cast of this size and quality, the new Jungle Book film could easily have lacked substance and still turned a profit. Thankfully the first brief but extensive look at all the moving parts looks pretty damned promising.
Directed by Iron-Man’s Jon Favreau, The Jungle Book stars Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, Idris Elba, and Christopher Walken as some impressive CG members of the animal kingdom along with newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli. Unfortunately we only get to hear one of these heavy hitters throughout the trailer, as Johansson’s manipulative snake, Kaa, narrates.
The Jungle Book hits cinemas 15 April 2016.
