Jungle Book: Disney live-action movie get living poster

Posted on

Disney

The jungle is about to come alive. With less then four months until The Jungle Book hits theaters, Disney has released a new motion poster for director Jon Favreau’s (Iron Man) take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale.

The so-called “living poster” zooms in on Mowgli who holds aloft a fiery torch. The poster reveals no additional footage since a trailer was released in September, but it does offer a glimpse of the film’s aesthetic and mood.

The live-action/CGI hybrid features newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli and a voice cast including Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Giancarlo Esposito, and Lupita Nyong’o.

Earlier this summer, Nyong’o, who plays Mowgli’s adoptive wolf mother Raksha, told EW, “I really enjoy that process, playing a mother of this boy. Just the love between a human and a wolf was something really cool to explore.”

See the new poster above. The Jungle Book arrives in theaters April 15, 2016.
