From Mowgli the Man-Cub to Baloo the Bear, Kaa the Snake and more, Jungle Book brings the characters audiences know and love to life while also introducing some of the other colorful inhabitants of Kipling’s books. Through eye-popping video, interactive technology and the whimsical and soulful stories, poems and songs from the original novel, this time honored tale promises to be a feast for the senses.
