Welcome to the ‘Jungle!’ Disney’s live-action version of ‘The Jungle Book’ won’t be out until 2016, but the first official trailer for the highly-anticipated movie is set to drop Sept. 14. As we patiently await the trailer, Disney has given us a sneak peek of what’s to come — and it looks amazing! Click to WATCH!
Once Disney revealed a star-studded cast for its live-action The Jungle Book in 2014, fans have been super excited to see what the studio had in store for the remake! As its 2016 release date gets closer, Disney has kickstarted our journey to the Jungle with a teaser trailer featuring Mowgli and the beautiful setting for the film. Watch the clip now!
The six-second teaser doesn’t give too much away, but judging from what we can see, the movie is going to be incredible! Set to some enchanting music and the peaceful sounds of nature (including a hissing sound that could be Kaa the python!), the clip uncovers the lush jungle and sneaks in a quick shot of Mowgli at the end. Needless to say, the teaser makes us even more excited for this movie!
Luckily, Disney isn’t going to make fans wait much longer to see more — the clip is actually a preview of the trailer that will be released Sept. 14! We already have an idea of what Mowgli, played by Neel Sethi looks like, but hopefully the longer trailer will give us a glimpse of some of the animals from the classic Disney story!
Speaking of the animals, let’s be reminded of the amazing cast Disney lined up for the film. Bill Murray will voice the beloved bear Baloo, Scarlett Johansson voices Kaa, Ben Kingsley voices Bagheera the panther, Idris Elba voices the tiger Shere Khan, Christopher Walken voices King Louie the monkey, and Giancarlo Esposito and Lupita Nyong’o voice wolves Akela and Raksha. The cast alone makes us eager to see the trailer, but now we really can’t wait thanks to the teaser!
