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.
The greatest journey is finding where you belong.

Cate Blanchett delivers the opening monologue as Kaa, very similar to how she provided the opening words to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring as Galádriel. Kaa and Galádriel share a great deal of similarity, being very old (possibly ancient) goddess-like characters, whose wisdom and countless experiences provide a narrative framework for the history leading up to current events.

Some of the wolves, such as Grey Brother, have blue eyes. In reality, wolves' eyes can be yellow, orange, brown or even pale green, but not blue. 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.
The Warner Bros logo is shaded tropical green and yellow (jungle colors).
It briefly appears through Kaa's scales, which fits with Kaa as the narrator of the film. See more
