Jungle Book!!

OMG! One of my favorite Disney movies (since childhood) is becoming a live action, full feature film >>> debuts 4 • 17 • 2016!!

The Jungle Book (the original) debuted October 18, 1967 and since then, it has brightened the days of many children, including mine. It is based on the collection of stories by English author, Rudyard Kipling. The story is based on a little boy named Mowgli who is an orphan and is found by a pack of wolves (members include Akela and Raksha, who raises Mowgli) and subsequently being raised by them. Everything is all good until the wolves get word that Shere Khan, a man hating, relentless, and ferocious Bengal tiger, has come near their land. Fearing for Mowgli's life, the wolves confide in Bagheera, a black panther, to take Mowgli back to the Man-Village.

While in Mowgli and Bagheera's journey, they come across Kaa, a python, who wants to eat Mowgli, but Bagheera intervenes and Baloo, the bear. Baloo is a loving and free-spirited bear who just have no worries of life. Mowgli quickly adapts to Baloo's way of living and wants to stay with Baloo, who tells Mowgli that he will not have to go back to the Man-Village. While Mowgli and Baloo were out, Mowgli gets kidnapped by a group of monkeys who takes him to see King Louie, an orangutan, who offers Mowgli freedom if he shows him how to make fire. But Mowgli doesn't know how to make fire and this makes King Louie angry because he thinks that Mowgli is tricking him and doesn't want to share the secret. Baloo finds Mowgli and he realizes that it's in Mowgli's best interest that he returns to the Man-Village. Mowgli thinks that Baloo has betrayed him and runs away.
Mowgli runs into Kaa again, but this time, Shere Khan interrupts and Mowgli, again, gets away..... OMG, I could go on and on and on... But I'll let you all see for yourselves! I can NOT wait for this movie to get to the movies.
