When I was in the theater, I saw a coming attraction for the remake of Disney's 'The Jungle Book'. Jungle Book was one of my favorite Disney films when I was a child. I immediately started hoping that this film would be out when I visit family next year, so that I could take one of my cousin's children to see it. It has a release date of April 15, which is just perfect! I'll be visiting family for a wedding on that very date, and I'm hoping the day after the wedding we can go see it. The graphics look absolutely beautiful and -- best of all -- Bill Murray will be providing the voice for Baloo the Bear! Disney's official site for the film is below, if you'd like to check out the trailer. I'm very excited!
“The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure.

Are they going to use an Indian actor to play Mowgli? he is suppose to be Indian right? I have a feeling they will use a white actor again.

I just hope that it will be enchanting to the end. I think Disney has no problem keeping up with the high expectation, and the high standard.

It's been a long time since my kids were young enough to watch Disney films in the theater. I'm very excited to see how it looks with a new batch of cousin's children, and if they are as enchanted. I think they will be.

I have vague memories of the original Jungle Book movie. I look forward to seeing the updated version of this classic movie.

I haven't seen the old movie nor read the Jungle book but I'm looking forward to this movie. I would love to see it in the cinema. I could see how they spend a lot of money to enhance the features of the film. It's so realistic even better than malificent. Just watching the trailer is enough to give me goosebumps.
