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, a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. After the tiger Shere Khan promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat, Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, he embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by the panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera, and the free-spirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart.

The Jungle Book seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse the audience in an enchanting and lush world. “The new production, computer-animated except for a living, breathing boy at the center of the action, isn’t pretty or sweet but utterly stunning, as well as very funny; all those vaudeville antecedents haven’t been forgotten.” (Wall Street Journal)
