First trailer for Disney's live action The Jungle Book


While I've been wary of Disney's current affinity for live action takes on their classic animated movies, I have to admit this looks pretty neat. Based more off of Rudyard Kipling's novel than the animated original, the Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Chef) directed remake is a darker, more action oriented tale if this trailer is anything to go by. The realistic animals look great, and Scarlett Johansson absolutely kills it as the silky and hypnotic Kaa. 

It's also got a hell of a cast with Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Giancarlo Esposito, and Christopher Walken. And if you were worried that the film wouldn't carry the spirit of the animated film, you'll love the little tidbit at the end. 

The Jungle Book releases April 15th next year.
