The Jungle Book — TV Spot: 'Live the Legend'


added: Sun, Feb 21st '16

A 30-second commercial has been released for "The Jungle Book," the forthcoming live-action adventure version of Disney's 1967 animated musical based on Rudyard Kipling's classic story about a boy raised in the wilds of India.

Featuring the voices of Sir. Ben Kingsley as Bagheera the black panther and Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, the film introduces 13-year-old Neel Sethi as Mowgli, a "special" boy who is forced to leave the jungle and reunite with his people when the place he calls home becomes too dangerous.

Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, Idris Elba, and Lupita Nyong'o round out the voice cast.

Directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Elf), "The Jungle Book" is scheduled to open 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..
