The Jungle Book - Super Bowl Spot, Domestic & International Trailers

Reported by Outsiders - 2016.02.07

The 3D action-adventure film, based on Disney's classic 1967 animated musical which itself was inspired by Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name, tells the story of a young orphan boy, Mogwli, who is raised in the wild by wolves, finds himself getting into all sorts of shenanigans when he encounters a variety of jungle creatures, including a happy-go-lucky bear named Baloo (voiced by Bill Murray) and a sinister snake known as Kaa (Scarlett Johannsson).

In addition to Murray and Johannsson, the voice cast of the animals also includes Sir Ben Kingsley (as Bagheera), Idris Elba (as Shere Khan), Giancarlo Esposito (as Akela), Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o (as Raksha) and Christopher Walken (as King Louie).

Based on Rudyard Kipling's timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who's been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he's ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the freespirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).

Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don't exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johannsson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack's alpha male Akela. "The Jungle Book" seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world..
