Iron Man director Jon Favreau re-invents Disney's classic for a whole new generation. Orphaned 'man cub' Mowgli (Neel Sethi) has been raised by wolves Raksha (Lupita Nyong'o) and Akela (Giancarlo Esposito) deep within the Indian jungle. However, Mowgli's life is threatened by ferocious, man-eating tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba). With the help of jaguar mentor Bagheera (Ben Kingsley) and loyal bear Baloo (Bill Murray), Mowgli must discover the strength to embrace his destiny and stand up to the fearsome Khan once and for all. Rudyard Kipling's beloved novel was adapted by Disney into their classic 1967 animation, and now Iron Man filmmaker Jon Favreau gives Kipling's tale a thrilling new makeover. Mixing live-action performance with cutting-edge CGI, this promises to be a visually spectacular and exciting family adventure, one featuring an all-star voice cast that also includes Scarlett Johansson as snake Kaa and Christopher Walken as orangutan leader King Louie.
