We all know the story of The Jungle Book following a small boy named Mowgli who was born to parents killed by the vicious tiger Shere Khan. Netflix recently dropped another version titled Mowgli.
Watching this movie, I knew there wouldn’t be any “bare necessities” to sing to. But with the character line up I had to give it a shot. Christian Bale voices Bagheera and Benedict Cumberbatch takes on the role of Shere Khan. In the end though, Mowgli is reminded he is just a human boy. Yet, he is still a friend of the jungles.
I give the movie a good 4/5 because the story has been done before. I am, however, always up for a darker version to any story such as this one. Definitely give it a shot, but set your expectations lower then what the live action Jungle Book gave us. Also the set is beautiful. Just look at this photo!
Until Next Time..
