The epic adventure of Mowgli (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 free-spirited 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.

If you’re a fan of Walt Disney’s 1967 animated feature of The Jungle Book then this new live action take will surely please. Shot on film as native 3D (not converted) the image pops from the moment the Disney opening tag appears and doesn’t let up. The audio is also top notch. There’s a few nods to the 1967 version including some of the now legendary songs plus an outstanding contemporary voice cast.
Five star movie but as per usual with Disney 3D releases in Australia this is a stand alone release i.e. no bonus features or behind the scenes extras and no 2D dedicated disc which means the disc is locked to play 3D so you need the relevant equipment (3D Blu-ray player and capable screen) or the disc won’t play. I’ve docked a star for this below par release. This is one film where I really would’ve appreciated the behind scenes stuff, it’s that well made and if I want them I have to buy the 2D version as well. Disney in Europe seem to able to release the 3D & 2D versions of films together in the one pack so not sure what the problem is here in Australia?
3D version highly recommended!
