The animal characters were created entirely in key frame computer animation, with the assistance of footage of real animal movement, the actors and actresses recording their lines, and performance capture for reference. The production team underwent a thorough process to realistically convey the animals' speaking, while still making them perceptually believable to the audience. Director Jon Favreau researched earlier movies featuring anthropomorphic animals, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Bambi (1942), and Babe (1995), and adopted certain techniques from those movies into this movie. Nearly seventy separate species of animals native to India are featured in this movie, with several species being portrayed as "one hundred fifty percent larger" than their actual counterparts. Jim Henson's Creature Shop was brought in to provide animal puppet figures for Neel Sethi to act against, although none appear in the finished movie. The animal puppets were performed by Artie Esposito, Sean W. Johnson, Allan Trautman, and April Warren. Favreau utilized motion-capture with certain actors and actresses, expressing a desire to avoid overusing the technology, in order to prevent evoking an uncanny valley effect. See more »
Some species not native to India appear, such as a red-eyed tree frog, whilst others are shown in the wrong environment - for example, whilst wolves and jerboas are found in India, they do not live in jungles. See more »
