This month, we can all follow Disney’s amazing journey through the richly immersive jungle world of India, with the film’s only on-screen actor, charismatic newcomer Neel Sethi (Mowgli). THE JUNGLE BOOK will always hold a very special place in my heart and I continue to keep in touch with Neel Sethi over social media. He was a joy to meet and interview along with the visionary director and extremely dynamic cast. [link to “Exclusive Jungle Book Interview: Jon Favreau and Neel Sethi”]
Audiences were mesmerized by Disney’s live-action epic adventure “The Jungle Book,” which has earned more than $949 million at the global box office to date. Critically acclaimed, Jon Favreau’s stunning live-action reimagining of Walt Disney’s animated classic, will be available early on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 23, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand on August 30.
Venture behind the scenes with in-depth bonus features that reveal the innovative film-making technology used to create the richly immersive jungle world and characters. I am especially excited to delve into a candid and humorous scene-by-scene audio commentary with director Jon Favreau and revisit the all-star voice cast who help bring the film’s colorful characters to life, as well as the musicians who accent the adventure with a majestic music score. The cast and crew behind this feature film were very easy to talk to, and shared many fascinating stories with us. Their commentary should be pretty interesting and entertaining on its own!
BONUS: for a limited time only from August 26th through September 1st: Audiences will have the opportunity to experience the movie again at select IMAX locations!
Until then, enjoy these bonus feature clips:
