Remember that Andy Serkis-directed Jungle Book movie that was set to come out back when Disney released their new live-action version? Well, it’s finally gearing up for a release, with Netflix stepping up to drop it in theaters and on its streaming platform beginning December 7th.
Titled Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, the film stars Rohan Chand as the titular character, alongside the voices of Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys, and Naomie Harris.
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 (Rohan Chand) 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. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys and Naomie Harris lead an all-star cast along with newcomer Rohan Chand in this visually spectacular and emotionally moving adventure.
