The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a black panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own, except for one; the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

Was originally set for a October 19th, 2018 wide release, before selling to Netflix only a few months before the release date. Netflix set the new date for the following year. The motive behind this unprecedentedly large Netflix acquisition is probably best explained by the unexpectedly poor reaction the movie would have had, had it undergone an ordinary cinema release, being unfairly tainted as it was by the hugely popular 2016 Disney version of the story. However, on November 8th, 2018 Netflix announced that the film will remain as a 2018 release, for November 29th in select theatres in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and London. The following week, the streaming service will debut the film globally on December 7th, with additional theatrical screenings expanded in the U.S. and the U.K. See more
