This new preview clip of The Jungle Book, the upcoming live-action/CGI fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Jon Favreau, features Mowgli (Neel Sethi), Baloo (voiced by Bill Murray), and Bagheera (voiced by Ben Kingsley):
The Jungle Book – I’m helping Baloo getting ready for hibernation.
“An orphan boy (Neel Sethi) is raised in the jungle with the help of a pack of wolves, a bear (Bill Murray), and a black panther (Ben Kingsley).”
Baloo doesn’t hibernate but he does nap, a lot actually, and he enjoys honey of course! I guess he’s related to Winnie the Pooh.
Anyway, here’s a new featurette about how the new film relates to Disney’s 1967 animated version and Rudyard Kipling’s book:
The Jungle Book – Legacy
The film will hit theaters on April 15, 2016.
