Storyline

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. Written by bockalonge

Trivia

At one point, Baloo angrily fights with Bagheera (who caught Mowgli during the running so he wouldn't join the Wolfpack) a reference to the previous installment of The Jungle Book (2016), when Baloo fights Shere Khan near the end, in order to protect Mowgli. See more »

Goofs

At 31:05 Tabaqi spots Mowgli's reflection in the water. This would not be possible as Mowgli is right behind him. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Kaa: [narrates] I am the jungle's eyes. I can see the past, and the future. It is I, Kaa, who witnessed the coming of man. And the jungle trying to survive. I saw chaos and darkness come to our lands. I saw the tiger, Shere Khan, killing man, and breaking the jungle's ancient law. And then, one fateful night, I saw the jungle place its hopes into the hands of a small creature, the like of which it had never seen before.

Could be better
9 December 2018 | by ercfunk-445-950046See all my reviews

It seems to have most of the elements that could make it a good movie but falls just a little short. One of the things that's odd is the CGI. It's not bad quality as the textures and color look good, but the shapes seem off. Shere Kahn's head seemed oddly wide, the wolves looked cat-like, Baloo looked like a post apocalyptic bear or something. The story and acting were decent.
