Mowgli Movie

There’s a new official plot synopsis for Mowgli (previously tilted Jungle Book), the upcoming live-action-with-CGI movie directed by Andy Serkis:

Plot synopsis:
“Blending live action and performance capture, the story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli (Rohan Chand) raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often-harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis) and a panther named Bagheera (Christian Bale), Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch). But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins. The other story’s central animal characters are: Kaa, the snake (Cate Blanchett); the leader of the wolf pack, Akela (Peter Mullan); the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander); Nisha, the female wolf (Naomie Harris), who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; Nisha’s mate, Vihaan (Eddie Marsan); and Mowgli’s Brother Wolf (Jack Reynor).”

The cast includes Rohan Chand, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, Tom Hollander, Naomie Harris, Eddie Marsan, Jack Reynor, Peter Mullan, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys, Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Georgie Farmer, Robin Berry, Josh Jefferies, and Riaz Mansoor.

The movie Mowgli will open in theaters on October 19, 2018.

Stay tuned for updates.

Jungle Book Origins Movie

You’ve probably heard of Disney’s The Jungle Book but have you heard about Andy Serkis’s upcoming take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel? Yep, the British Actor is set to helm yet another movie based on Mowgli’s story! The film is titled Jungle Book Origins, it will blend live-action and CGI and it will use moiton capture.

Andy Serkis says his movie adaptation will be darker and more faithful to Rudyard Kipling’s book. Disney’s latest movie which actually tries to recapture the spirit of the 1967 animation version. So I guess there’s space for two Jungle Book movies within two years.

Check out the cast:
