Tag: The Jungle Book

Description: After a foray into the superhero genre with Iron Man and an impassioned indie in Chef, director Jon Faverau will rediscover The Bare Necessities next year for The Jungle Book. Disney’s long-anticipated remake has assembled quite the star-studded cast for the CG-laden adventure, too, and up-and-comer Neel Sethi headlines the fantasy romp as Mowgli, a young boy raised by Lupita Nyong’o’s Raksha. Blending practical effects with stunning CGI, The Jungle Book is shaping up to be a true visual treat, and we’ll find out if Faverau is on to winner when his latest effort bows on April 15, 2016.
