Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Andy Serkis, the director of this film who also plays Baloo the bear, has openly stated that this film is much darker and more serious than the 2016 film of "The Jungle Book" made by Disney, which is very important to notice because this film is not for kids at all as it has violence, bloodshed, scenes of cruelty, some frightening and disturbing imagery, adult themes like discrimination, poaching and people struggling to find themselves, and a very dark, grim and dour tone, not to mention the characters are much more complex and very different to their Disney counterparts, especially Baloo. This is absolutely nothing compared to any of the Disney adaptations of "The Jungle Book", and it's very somber, cold and realistic.
  • There are many dark frightening scenes within the film that are quite intense.
  • Some of the characters can be frightening for some viewers, such as Kaa, who is a gigantic, sinister-looking Indian rock python with a creepy chanting voice. Baloo also can fall under this category, because he's a menacing-looking sloth bear with a very strict and demanding demeanor which is very similar to that of a drill instructor and a deep, grating and somewhat sinister voice.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a scene mowgli and baloo come across a dead animal with violent cuts and his eye gouged out.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • An albino wolf cub named Bhoot is bullied by his siblings for being "different". The same wolf cub is later seen with his head mounted in a hunter's trophy 'lair'. The cub is a very childlike character, and the boy who finds his mounted head, Mowgli, weeps silently for several seconds because they were friends. This scene is shocking and upsetting, and might be too intense for sensitive viewers.
  • They scene were his best friend wolf head was hanging in the Hunter's private collection was very perturbing for my 9 and 10 years old kids.
