baloo and mowgli in the jungle

Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures? new big-screen, 3D adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved classic?The Jungle Book. Blending live action and performance capture, the film features an impressive roster of stars, including Oscar winners Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett and Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch. However, the cast member that excites us the most is Irish star of the future Jack Reynor. Mr. Reynor looks dashing in the trailer for his latest film,’so we’re delighted to see him picked up by another production!

For those that don’t know the story of The Jungle Book, first of all, where have you been!? Secondly, the story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India.? As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own.? All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan.? But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

The actors performing the roles of the story’s central animal characters are: Benedict Cumberbatch as the tiger, Shere Khan; Cate Blanchett as Kaa, the snake; Christian Bale as the panther, Bagheera; Andy Serkis (who is also the film’s Director) as Baloo, the bear;?and Jack Reynor as Mowgli’s Brother Wolf.?On the human side, young actor Rohan Chand will play the boy raised by wolves, Mowgli.

The film has been slated for release in October of 2017.
