We finally get a look at the live action remake of the classic 1967 movie The Jungle Book, lots of rumors have flown around about this movie and what it would be like but now we finally get a first look. Let’s check out The Jungle Book trailer.
First of all, let’s just talk about how pretty every damn shot looked in that trailer. Holy crap, as far as trailers go, that is some of the crispier effects I’ve seen. Couple this with the fact that none of this movie is shot on location, and all of the animals in this movie are created by CGI, I’m thoroughly impressed with just the look of the movie so far.
Next, let’s talk about that voice cast. Jesus, that is a stacked cast, and even though we only get to hear Scarlett Johansson’s voice, who was an interesting twist on Kaa the Python, I’d imagine there is a lot of great things to come with the rest of that voice cast.
I also love the little whistling at the end of the trailer. Now, depending on how you feel about Jon Favreau and his movies, and how you feel about remakes of classics, you may or may not like the trailer. Personally, I’m largely impressed with how good the movie looks, and am a fan of every actor in the cast except for Neel Sethi (who plays Mowgli), which I haven’t seen enough from to judge, so i’ll be watching and listening for news tidbits about The Jungle Book.
/Film also has a great recap of a twitter Q&A from Jon Favreau.
