The Jungle Book


Director: Jon Favreau

With blockbuster veteran Jon Favreau at it’s helm, this Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action reimagining of the masterful 1967 animation sets the bar for modernising a children’s classic.

With both state-of-the-art visual effects and perfect casting choices, the density of the undergrowth and the flamboyancy of its dwellers are lovingly translated and amplified to overwhelming effect.

The result is a nostalgic, evocative and enchanting experience that is every bit as rich, vibrant and awe-inspiring as the Jungle itself.
