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.

While a toady in the book, Tabaqui had fits of madness that caused him to bite everything in his path, and even Shere Khan avoided him during those episodes. Before his final confrontation with Shere Khan, Mowgli himself acknowledged Tabaqui to be a cunning spy for the tiger. The film makes no mention of any fits of madness, nor does Tabaqui demonstrate any cunningness that would make him that invaluable to Shere Khan. See more

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.
