Falling in line with Disney's recent live-action remakes of their beloved animated properties come The Jungle Book, the adaptation of Ruyard Kipling's story about a boy named Mowgli who is raised in the jungle by wolves and goes on a journey of self-discovery when he comes to the civilized world.
Jon Favreau (Iron Man) is directing, newcomer Neel Sethi is starring as Mowgli, and the voice cast for all those beloved animal characters ranges from Bill Murray, to Idris Elba, to Scarlett Johansson, to even Christopher Walken.
With Disney's big D23 event this weekend, we have our first look at the teaser poster for the film, which you can see below.
It looks pretty well-done, as if the animated film really has come to life. I'm just curious how they're going to mix live-action with CGI, as we have seen many examples recently (Avengers: Age of Ultron the biggest culprit) where excessive special effects in a film can really take you out of the moviegoing experience.
The Jungle Book opens in theater April 15th, 2016 and expect the first trailer to be released in the next coming months.
