#thejunglebook The Jungle Book opens on April 15. This Disney film is a classic tale inspired by the original animated film.
If you haven’t seen the original animated film, here is a little background information.
Based on a Rudyard Kipling story, this live-action epic adventure is about a boy named Mowgli. This boy is very unique because he has been raised by a family of wolves.
When a fearsome scarred tiger, Shere Khan, decides that Mowgli is a threat, he makes him abandon his home.
Mowgli sets off on an epic adventure of self-discovery. Along the way, he is joined by his mentor Bagheera and Baloo, a free-spirited bear.
During his journey, he meets all kinds of jungle creatures who don’t have the best of intentions. As a result, he learns important life lessons along the way.
The Jungle Book blends live-action with amazing photorealistic CGI animals and environments. Audiences will feel immersed into the captivating jungle world, which will be even more incredible in 3D and IMAX 3D.
