Lately Jon Favreau has been releasing tidbits and teasers for his upcoming The Jungle Book Disney movie adaptation.
We have another teaser, this one comes from the directors instagram. Favreau posted this behind the scenes image during a recent shoot of the film. The image contains a silhouetted figure, which appears to be a child. I’m assuming it is Mowgli, who is played by actor Emjay Anthony. The rest of the film’s cast is mostly voice actors. Ben Kingsley will voice Bagheera, Bill Murray will voice Baloo, Scarlett Johansson will voice Kaa, and Idris Elba will voice Shere Khan!
Favreau’s The Jungle Book is Disney’s latest adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic book. The film will be a hybrid of live action and animation, which is pretty cool. Mowgli’s Sethi will lead a small cast of physical actors on-set.
The Jungle Book is still shooting and will hit theaters on October 9th, 2015.
And just because we can, here’s a pic of Scarlett Johansson. 🙂
