Trivia

In November 2017, Hans Zimmer was announced to return to compose the music for this film, as he did with the 1994 film. On a similar note, director Jon Favreau previously was able to get hold of Richard M. Sherman to compose The Jungle Book (2016) like he did so with the 1967 film. See more »
