Trivia

The Jungle Book (2016)'s inspiration from the Disney animated classics didn't begin and end with The Jungle Book (1967)l. As director Jon Favreau explained: "We went back to films like Bambi (1942) to see how they best used elements, because I wanted to use different elements in this." He went on: "I wanted air, fire, water, and earth, and Bambi uses seasons and weather, and using different types of day-opportunities that this filmmaking style allows you. So we looked at films like Bambi, we looked at films like The Lion King (1994)." It's true-throughout The Jungle Book, you can sense the legacy of these earlier films and, thanks to the nature of the story (roughly broken up into vignettes), the changing seasons effect is vital and dazzlingly realized.

Goofs

The rain forest depicted in the movie has a tropical dry and wet season. They stated in the movie there is no winter. Winter hibernation was a lie from Baloo the bear to trick Mowgli into collecting honey for him. When Bagheera shows up, he tells Mowgli there's no winter hibernation where they are. See more »

Amazing visuals mixed in with great story telling.
3 May 2016 | by (Mitrovica , Kosovo) – See all my reviews

The Jungle Book is a live-action/CGI fantasy film that retells the story of Mowgli, an orphaned human boy who, guided by his animal guardians, sets out on a journey of self-discovery while evading the threatening Shere Khan. Neel Sethi plays the main character, Mowgli in the movie. He is the only human being on screen and as his first ever role, this kid actor is truly magnificent. He is as good as any kid actor has ever been, even favorably compared to Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. The computer generated imagery is brilliant all throughout, definitely some of the best ever and the 3D is just mind blowing. In every single scene I kept getting surprised and thrilled at just how amazing the CGI and 3D were. I think the main reason as to why this movie worked it's because it also has a very good story line that's mixed in with the amazing visuals. Also, the voice actors are all perfectly cast. Especially Idris Elba as Shere Khan, who is truly haunting in every scene he's in. That was one well made and scary villain that Mowgli had to face. Jon Favreau did a fantastic work with this movie, cause really this story has been told many times before, and yet this movie feels fresh and interesting nonetheless. I'm glad that it's doing so well in Box Office because it completely deserves it. Movies like this must be appreciated so that they can inspire more great work, and maybe one day, even erase movies like Transformers.
