There are scenes of fighting depicted between various animals in the film, where they are seen attacking and biting one another. Although these scenes are intense, they are depicted without any details of injury or bloodletting.

Shere Khan viciously attacks, bites and throws a wolf off a cliff.

A man tries to defend himself by shoving a flaming torch in Shere Khan's face, but Shere Khan pins him down and kills him (the killing is shown as a shadow).

On several occasions Shere Khan tries to kill Mowgli. Many times, Mowgli's friends try to save him but Shere Khan attacks them, hits them and bites them. In one of his attempts to kill Mowgli, his claw tears across Mowgli's chest causing a wound and some bleeding.

Mowgli looks at a human village from a distance. Against a background of blazing flames, people seem to be celebrating something. There are drinks in their hands but nothing is clearly visible.

The film contains several scenes where characters face threatening situations and/or engage in fighting. For instance, there are scenes where the protagonist is being pursued or cornered by animals such as a tiger or a giant gigantopithecus.

Shere Khan is a menacing and frightening character, intent on killing Mowgli. His face is covered with burn scars, which are shown several times in close-up.

There is a scene where Mowgli accidentally starts an inferno which engulfs a large part of the forest, threatening the lives of all the animals. This scene can be emotionally upsetting, though later the fire is extinguished by elephants.

A wolf is killed by Shere Khan. When Mowgli learns of his death his grief is emotionally upsetting.

A giant snake tries to swallow Mowgli by coiling around him and opening her mouth wide, but he is saved.

There are some jump scares when Shere Khan leaps into the frame. There is another jump scare. This time, it's from King Louie when he tries to find Mowgli.
