“Incredible & Beautiful”
I absolutely loved this movie! It’s one of my favourite movies of the year so far! The visual effects are fantastic and they blew me away! It’s breathtaking! Not only does this movie have phenomenal visuals, it also has great characters and fantastic voice acting! The plot is similar to the original with a few changes/twists here and there. The story follows Neel Sethi, Mowgli escaping the threat from the tiger Shere Khan and while venturing onwards in the jungle, he meets new creatures.The whole cast did a terrific job, especially Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Bill Murray as Baloo, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Christopher Walken as King Louie. Idris Elba’s voice really suited Shere Khan and really made him terrifying! The actor who played Mowgli, Neel Sethi, in my opinion did a great job with what he had to do. He had to act basically across nothing but blue/green screens and puppets. Overall, amazing voice work and great performances!The soundtrack was gorgeous! Hearing Baloo (Bill Murray) and Mowgli sing “Bare Necessities” was awesome and brought a smile on my face! Jon Favreau did a fantastic job adapting The Jungle Book! I highly recommend you watch this! You will have a great time and have so much fun! It exceeded my expectations and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming live action disney movies. The Jungle Book is incredible and one of Disney’s best!
