Warner Bros. Pictures just released the first trailer for Mowgli, an upcoming 2018 adventure fantasy film based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, The Jungle Book. Mowgli is directed by Andy Serkis and features motion capture performances from Serkis, Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Kate Blanchett. Mowgli swings into theaters on October 19th. In the video below, Andy Serkis gives a behind-the-scenes look at Mowgli.
“The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.”
