Directed by actor Andy Serkis, who jumps into direction with this Callie Kloves's script focused on Mowgli's early years, a human being raised in the India's jungle by a herd of wolves led by Akela. The child, who learns to survive in the jungle is accepted by animals as one of them, nevertheless he will have to face his real origins when Shere Khan, a tiger everyone is afraid of in the jungle, rejects and threatens him. We will follow Mowgli in this new adventure that mixes animation and real image, with his friends Baloo and Bagheera, a bear and a panther that will take care of him. It stars Rohan Chand, and actors as Christian Bale's height (Bagheera), Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan), the own Andy Serkis (Baloo) or Cate Blanchett (Kaa) among others, give their voices.
