If you’re not excited about the live-action redo of The Jungle Book, I’m not sure we can be friends. This is, quite possibly, the most exciting Disney movie to come out in a really, really long time, and friends? I’m going to be on the red carpet at the premiere in LA on April 4 to witness it ALL.
The cast is amazing, with some huge Hollywood names and Oscar winners including Lupita Nyong’o and Sir Ben Kingsley. There are other big names breathing life to our favorite Jungle Book characters such as Bill Murray and Scarlett Johannsson. The cherry on top is that Jon Favreau is the director, and I cannot wait to see his interpretation of my favorite Disney movie.
Check out the following three clips to get excited about The Jungle Book which opens in theaters on April 15, 2016! The first is a featurette about how it came to be. The second is Baloo (Bill Murray) fattening up for a long winter’s nap – or rather, a winter full of naps, and the third is an emotional clip about Mowgli (Neel Sethi) leaving the wolf pack. Tweet me at @SummerLenDavis and tell me what you think! I promise to respond!
