Disney released the trailer of its remake of 1967 animated classic The Jungle Book on YouTube earlier in the week and it captured the imagination of the world yet again! The lush flora and fauna of India come alive in the short tease as Kaa (Scarlett Johansson-sounding sinister!), the giant python explains to young ‘mancub’ Mowgli how little chance he has of getting out of the jungle alive.
Director Jon Favreau’s fantasy take has made the film darker yet magical as, “it is still the bildungsroman of the mancub Mowgli and the friends and foes he makes in the jungle”, according to The Hindustan Times.
A day before the official trailer was released, Favreau sent out this charming Vine of the first footage for the live action version of the Disney classic.
Go Viral likes the trailer because:
1) It is the perfect tease – has us wanting more!
2)Who can resist the charm of swinging in the jungle along with Mowgli?
