The live-action version of the Jungle Book, which is scheduled for release in late 2015, recently unveiled its concept art and logo. The production unveiled the artwork for this new release via their Twitter account. What’s funny is just the other day, Susan McGalla and I were talking about how many memories we have from the animated classic. This should be an exciting time for fans of Disney’s live-action films. The schedule for this movie is appearing to be right on schedule.
The live-action version of the jungle book will have a host of stars and should easily be a blockbuster when it is released. It will feature Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Christopher Walken starring as King Louie, Scarlett Johannson as Kaa, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, and new actor Neel Sethi as the Mowgli character.
The release of the concept art is a big step forward in this latest Disney project. With an all-star cast there is hardly any questioning the fact that this movie will be poised to become a financial success. For more information on the movie, go here.
