The classic story of Mowgli, a young Indian boy raised in the jungle by Baloo the Bear and Bagheera the black panther who fights for his life against sly and blood thirsty tiger Shere Khan, returns to the big screen in a new Walt Disney Pictures production featuring stunning CGI, reminiscent of Cameron’s Avatar.

The film contemplates the literal scars that mankind can leave upon nature, the true meaning of family and the voyage of self-discovery that all children must eventually embark upon; pieced together with warmth and insight that’s never too sentimental or obvious.

The film’s cast includes Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Bill Murray as Baloo, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha.
