'Jungle Book' Teaser Trailer: Bear Necessities
Today the first trailer for Jon Favreau's re-imagining of the classic, The Jungle Book, has just hit the internet today, and you can see it below:
From the trailer, you can tell they are going for an epic feel that is consistent with many of these Disney animated to live-action adaptations. As a huge fan of the property, the tone and emphasis on action beats looks like an exciting change of pace. My only complaint was that the CG work was pretty glaring, but given the nature of the film, it's understandable.
The cast is incredible and includes: Bill Murray, Neel Sethi, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, and Giancarlo Esposito.
The epic is planned to hit theaters April 16, 2016.
