Jungle Book: Bill Murray sings Bare Necessities on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Posted on


Disney’s live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book is just a few weeks away, but many details are still under wraps. For one, we haven’t yet heard much of Bill Murray’s performance as Baloo. However, the actor appeared on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! alongside costar Neel Sethi, who plays Mowgli, to tease what audiences might expect from Murray’s portrayal.

Murray and Sethi were coy about whether “The Bare Necessities,” a classic song from the 1967 animated film, actually appears in the latest iteration. That said, they launched into the full song remarkably easily. Watch the clip below.
