Live Action Jungle Book Trailer

From Jon Favreau – the man who created the first Iron Man which helped launch comic book movies into the stratosphere – comes the trailer for the new live action Jungle Book movie, and it looks to be epic beyond words.

This tells the tale that we all grew up with: Mowgli (played in this version by Neel Sethi) is a young man-cub raised by wolves who is befriended by a panther and a bear even as he is pursued by the fearsome tiger Shere Khan who has vowed to destroy the men who have wounded him. With cream of the crop actors like Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), Bill Murray (Baloo), Scarlett Johannsson (Kaa), Christopher Walken (King Louie), Lupita Nyong’o (Raksha), and Idris Elba (as Shere Khan) lending their voices to these iconic roles, this promises to be an instant classic for kids and adults alike.
