The ending credits feature "The Jungle Book" in book form, that has the same cover design as the book seen in the opening credits of The Jungle Book (1967). It is, in fact, the original book prop, taken from Disney's archives, as mentioned in the "Making of" featurette. See more »
The movie clearly depicts African-size elephants in the movie. While there are elephants in India, they tend to be rather smaller in size compared to African elephants.
Also, the wolves are not depicted accurately either as they posses dense fur compared to the real Indian wolves which, due to the heat, tend to have rather short fur. The wolves in the movie closely resemble Tibetan wolves. See more »

The film ends on a shot of Mowgli, Bagheera, and Baloo resting on a tree branch which then transitions into a illustration from the exact same book of "The Jungle Book" that was featured in the opening of the original animated Disney film. It even is situated in front of the same blue curtain-like background. After it is briefly closed, it is then opened again as characters from the film, including a singing King Louie, dance to the song "I Wanna Be Like You" over the first part of the end credits.

Did you read negative reviews? Do so, it's hilarious. The complains are: not funny (did you even read The Jungle Book?), violent (again - did you even read The Jungle Book?), no songs and dances (should I repeat?), "no soul" (oh, could you please give me a definition of "soul", there are thousands theologians dying to get one).
Just ignore that baseless rants and see the movie for yourself. And show your kids too - they would love it. Best visuals out there. THE BEST. Should that be me, the movie would take all Oscars in visual\sound presentation there are.
The plot is not exactly The Jungle Book (I mean book here). But again - it's hard to make one. No movie can exactly repeat the book. It's good, it fits the age it meant for, it's emotional and realistic in the same time.
Very, very impressive movie!
