Link to the trailer: The Jungle Book (2016)
Director: Jon Favreau
It’s been years since I’ve seen The Jungle Book but after seeing this trailer I want to check it out again. The live action version looks stunning! I’m really excited for this movie. Jon Favreau, who directed Iron Man (they point this out in the trailer in case you didn’t know), is directing the film, which is a plus in my opinion. The cast is amazing as well. We have Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, and Christopher Walken as King Louie (this is like the best thing ever). The film will feature some new songs as well as old favorites, like “The Bare Necessities”. I’m fine with Disney’s new kick of making live action versions of their animated classics as long as they all look this good. The film releases on April 15, 2016 and I can’t wait! Anyone else already hearing the songs? That’s all for this Trailer Tuesday, see ya next week!
