Jon Favreau Takes On Rudyard Kiplings’ “The Jungle Book”

Director Jon Favreau‘s next work is being billed as a live-action musical adventure fantasy. That’s a lot of categorical labeling, but it might all fit. Favreau is directing a star-studded version of Rudyard Kipling‘s classic The Jungle Book, which will be released by Walt Disney Studios in April, 2016.


The story of Mogli, the Indian boy raised by a family of wolves, includes his friendships with Baloo the Bear (voiced by Bill Murray), and Bagheera the Panther (voiced by Ben Kinsley). Their mortal enemy, the Bengal Tiger Shere Khan, is voiced by Idris Elba, while Neel Sethi, a newcomer, is cast as Mogli. The film also features Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Christopher Walken as King Louie the Ape.
