Back in July Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Mowgli. Not long after it was announced that Netflix made a deal with Warner Bros. to acquire worldwide rights to movie. Consequently, the film, now brandishing the full title Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle has released its first trailer for the film under Netflix.
Below is the official synopsis from Netflix:
Acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis reinvents Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Mowgli has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilized world of man. Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs.
The film is fronted by a star-studded cast that includes Rohan Chand as Mowgli, Andy Serkis as Baloo, Christian Bale as Bagheera, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan. The other story’s central animal characters are: Kaa, the snake (Cate Blanchett); the leader of the wolf pack, Akela (Peter Mullan); the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander); Nisha, the female wolf (Naomie Harris), who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; Nisha’s mate, Vihaan (Eddie Marsan); and Mowgli’s Brother Wolf (Jack Reynor). Freida Pinto and Matthew Rhys also star.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle will arrive in select theaters November 29 and on Netflix on Dec. 7.
Walt Disney Pictures released their live-action remake of the Jungle Book back in 2016. The film directed by Jon Favreau grossed over $900 million at the worldwide box office.
