The UK cinema release of the live action version of Disney’s The Jungle Book is getting closer and in anticipation a brand new trailer has arrived.
Directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), The Jungle Book is based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic story and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film. The cast features newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli with Idris Elba providing the voice of Shere Khan, Ben Kingsley voicing Bagheera, Bill Murray voicing Baloo, Scarlett Johansson voicing Kaa, and Christopher Walken voicing King Louie.
The Jungle Book tells the story of Mowgli, 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, 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 who 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 film also stars 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 arrives in cinemas in 3D on 15th April 2016. Watch the brand new trailer below:
