The Disney castle logo shrinks into jungle foliage as the camera pulls back but the film title moves off-screen left as the camera adds pan right motion to its pullback, panning first to a Bambi scene and then to a jungle scene. See more »
Think twice- you might not think that it will be more engaging than BvS!
It's not a bad movie and it's certainly watchable, but it's not very good either. If you love the original one you'll probably like this one too. It might be the best The Jungle Book out there, though, whatever that counts for. Usually Disney movies leave me feeling really good about myself and the world, this one left me with nothing. Btw, that awesome Bare Necessities music from the trailers isn't used in the movie until the very end for one small sequence. Major letdown. Also, the trailers showed every major frame in the movie. The theater was full of kids, though, and they laughed all the time, so they probably liked it a whole lot.
Verdict: It was underwhelming and disappointing. Lame story, shallow characters. Cool end credits. Fun songs, cute digital animals. 6/10 for cool visuals and King Louie.
Final Verdict: It is just a one-time watch! In fact I will watch BvS in 4D instead of JB!
