Jungle Book, The (PG)

Jungle Book, The (PG)

Adventure, Drama, Family

The man-cub Mowgli flees the jungle after a threat from the tiger Shere Khan. Guided by Bagheera the panther and the bear Baloo, Mowgli embarks on a journey of self-discovery, though he also meets creatures who don't have his best interests at heart.

The critical consensus

It all adds up to a genuine feel-good delight, from a filmmaker confirming his status as king of the Swingers.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 11/04/2016

Wonderful to look at, this is a more adult, more complex affair than its animated, and more entertaining, forebear. Still, it’s Disney’s best live-action adaptation yet.

***(*)(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 11/04/2016

Groundbreaking and magical.

*****Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/04/2016

Forget about your worries and your strife and enjoy this beguiling tale of family, friendship and an incredible journey of self-discovery.

Jon Favreau brings lush CGI, dark shadows and big-beast stars to a rebooted classic.
