The Jungle Book — New TV Spot: 'Attention'


added: Mon, Feb 29th '16

The Indian jungle "is not a game" in the new 30-second commercial for "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau's upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney's classic 1967 animated film "The Jungle Book."

The preview shows a tad more footage from the film based on Rudyard Kipling's timeless tale of a young Indian orphan boy who was raised by wild jungle creatures.

Most notably, they are new scenes concerning Bagheera, the Black Panther (voiced by Ben Kingsley), who warns the film's young protagonist, Mowgli (played by 13-year-old newcomer Neel Sethi), that the jungle has become unsafe, perhaps too dangerous for humans. Especially when the ferocious Shere Khan, the Tiger (voiced by Idris Elba), is looking to take a bite out of the pint-sized Mowgli: "Have I got your attention now?"

Another big danger? Kaa, the Python (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), seen here in the advertisement, coiling her large tail around Mowgli's tiny body before baring her fangs. Christopher Walken's King Louie, the Orangutan, also appears in the above clip, which unfortunately doesn't reveal any footage of Bill Murray's Baloo, the Bear.

"The Jungle Book" will be arriving in theaters on 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..
