A magnificent restyled Disney Classic

"No matter where you go or what they may call you, you will always be my son."

Of all fairy tales adaptations I've seen so far ("Maleficent", "Snow white and the huntsmen" and "Jack the giant slayer"), this animated movie (it looks lifelike but it consists mainly out of groundbreaking digital animations) is the the most dazzling one. I don't want to sound too excited and shower Jon "Chef" Favreau with all the superlatives that I can think of for his directing work of , but in short this film was fantastic. Not only did this film throw me back to my childhood when my innocent eyes wandered over a large picture book and sympathized with the little Mowgli (Neel Sethi). But as an adult, I also stared at this beautiful film dumbfounded.

Move over Richard Parker. Look out for Shere Khan!

Shere Khan is back and he's never been more terrifying!

Disney's latest live action remake of yet another of their own animated classic is the best one yet. Paying respect to what made the original animated film so much fun while daring to go into far darker territory, The Jungle Book is a visual masterpiece and an excellent adventure film for families to enjoy.
The CGI for the jungle environment and the animal characters is flat out outstanding. It surpasses Life of Pi and in some parts it gives Avatar a run for its money. The beautifully rendered rainforest that the characters call home is vibrant, lush, and colorful. This is the absolute front runner for all the Best Visual Effects categories this awards season. The action scenes are bigger in scale and for a PG rated movie are a...

A Book Worth Checking Out

When Disney first started the trend of turning their beloved animated classics into current live-action iterations, I admit I was skeptical. However, as the films continue to come out, I have to say that it seems to be working. Granted, when you have talent like Jon Favreau on board directing, with talent like Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson and Idris Elba as well - it's a recipe for success.

The story of The Jungle Book doesn't follow the animated film nor the books exactly - but takes bits and pieces from each on accordingly. I have to say, the film works even better with the casting of Neel Sethi - essentially an unknown young actor. The whole thing was filmed on a lot so there is a lot of green screen and CG involved and I have to say that Sethi ...

Verwunschen

Rudyard Kiplings Roman ist im Gegensatz zum späteren Disney Animations-Klassiker eine düstere Geschichte übers Erwachsenwerden. In der Version von 1967 wurde dann ein Musical für Jung und Alt daraus. In diesem neuen Mix aus Animations- und Realfilm versucht sich Regisseur Jon Favreau an einem Spagat: Er breitet vor uns die verwunschene Stimmung der Vorlage aus, während sich die Figuren (und auch die Handlung) am Animationsfilm orientieren. Selbst ein paar Songs werden neu vertont! Neel Sethi spielt den zwölfjährigen Mogli, der im Dschungel ausgesetzt wird. Ein reines Vergnügen ist das an sich nicht für ein Kind, unter Tieren aufzuwachsen. Die Bedrohung durch eine gewisse Schlange sowie einen Tiger, der vom allzu menschlichen Trieb der Rache beherrscht wird, können wir dank CGI hier auch s...
