The Jungle Book (2016)
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Family Film, Disney
I loved this adaption of the original Disney Classic and it may even be better than the first 😛 . The CGI is awesome and creates realistic and impressive animals 🙂 . It has an amazing all star cast (Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba and Scarlett Johansson) whose voices all suit the animals they play, even a female Kaa 😛 . Neel Sethi was absolutely brilliant and creates a likable, adorable character of Mowgli! His version of the character was ten times better than the 1967 version as you believe his struggle (sympathise with him rather than him being annoying) 🙂 . The action was good as it mostly sticks to the narrative of the original Jungle Book. Though what I did like was that the narrative wasn’t too predictable because (without spoiling) sections are altered. Plus I loved the fact the classic music kept playing throughout in the background and some of the more popular songs still are in the story 😀 ! A really great adaptation that feel more grown up but can still be enjoyed by the entire family 😀 Enjoy!!
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
