Why Disney’s Jungle Book Is Going To Quickly Become A Favorite In Your Home #JungleBookBluRay
I’m about to tell you why Disney’s Jungle Book is going to quickly become a favorite in your home! As most of you probably remember, I was in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. While I was on this amazing journey with Disney in Los Angeles, I was given the opportunity to watch some of the bonus footage from The Jungle Book Blu Ray and learn how the movie was created, like behind the scenes secrets and stuff! For me, taking press trips are a lot of fun. Meeting the people behind these films is great and it is always amazing to meet the talented actors and actresses who help bring these films to life. BUT, learning how the real magic is made and listening to the animators is beyond words! To get to sit and listen to the creative minds behind any film is an honor, but to listen to the creativity behind a Disney film is surreal. The animals and world were brought to life with such detail and imagination that it is hard for my brain to even comprehend.
After watching Disney’s The Jungle Book and hearing Idris Elba’s voice coming from Shere Khan, I was mesmerized by the whole process and the film. I have seen other Disney live action films, but never like this!
I loved Lupita Nyongo ever since her performance in 12 Years A Slave, so hearing her voice come from the mother wolf, Raksha was simply breathtaking. She added such a soothing element that was almost welcoming me into their world.
Neels Sethi, who plays Mowgli in the film is just adorable! Watching how they created this film around him was just awe inspiring! Take a look around at the clips and photos, then head out to get your own copy to share with your family this week!
About The Jungle Book:
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. THE JUNGLE BOOK now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
