added: Sun, Feb 7th '16

Just when you thought the Super Bowl couldn't get any wilder, along comes the new full-length trailer for "The Jungle Book," Disney's upcoming live-action version of the 1967 animated classic about the adventures of a young feral boy who was raised in the jungle by wild animals.

"Iron Man" and "Elf" director Jon Favreau is in charge of bringing this Rudyard Kipling's classic tale to the big screen, which is incorporating the use of photo-realistic computer-generated creatures to interact with a real kid actor.

13-year-old Indian-American actor Neel Sethi is making his feature film debut as the pint-sized wild boy, Mowgli.

Meanwhile, the voice cast includes Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, Christopher Walken as King Louie the orangutan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa the python, Sir. Ben Kingsley as Bagheera the black panther, Idris Elba as Shere Khan the tiger and Lupita Nyong'o as Raksha the wolf mother who is the first to name and adopt Mowgli as one of her own.

"The Jungle Book" arrives in theaters April 15th.

Based on Rudyard Kipling's timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), 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 (voice of Idris Elba), 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 (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the freespirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).

Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don't exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johannsson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes 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" seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world..
