Over the past few days, Disney has been releasing portions of a new triptych poster from their highly-anticipated adaptation of The Jungle Book. Today we not only have all three individual posters, but the full triptych image featuring all of the main characters. The poster gives us new glimpses at Neel Sethi's Mowgli, the only human character in this live-action/CGI hybrid, along with Baloo (Bill Murray), Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), Shere Khan (Idris Elba), Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), and King Louie (Christopher Walken).
Directed by Jon Favreau, 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 free-spirited 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 Johansson), 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. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.
While we still have a few months to find out how The Jungle Book fares at the box office, we do know that it will debut in a rather competitive weekend. This adventure will go toe-to-toe with Amityville: The Awakening, Barbershop: The Next Cut, Everybody Wants Some and Criminal. While we wait for new footage to arrive, take a look at the new posters for The Jungle Book below.
