Following the arrival of the first trailer and poster for Mowgli yesterday [check them out here], Warner Bros. has released a featurette for Andy’s Serkis’ upcoming adaptation of The Jungle Book which sees the director taking us behind the scenes of this darker take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale; watch it here…
The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.
Mowgli is set for release on October 19th.
