Hey guys, Jana here,
Get ready to revel in the wickedness that is Scarlett Johansson! As the trailer opens for Jon Favreau’s version of the Disney property ‘The Jungle Book‘, we’re drawn into a trance-like state by her voice as Kaa. We see newcomer Neel Sethi as the almost-naked Mowgli running, jumping and dodging all the evils pursuing the lost man-child in the jungle.
The star-studded cast features Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Bill Murray as Baloo and Ben Kingsley as Bagheera. If you remember the story correctly, we know that Baloo and Bagheera take a protective interest in Mowgli and struggle to keep him safe from the many dangers the jungle holds. The trailer lives up to it’s title of “teaser” because all it does is leave you wanting more! I love the subtle nod to the song “The Bare Necessities” at the end, too. We have only to wait until next April to see the film in completion, though.
