Out With the Classic, In With the Original

Innovative filmmakers are retelling classic, popular movies in a new way. When Disney made the animated classic The Jungle Book in 1967, they created a fun musical based on the 1894 Rudyard Kipling book of the same name.Two years ago, Disney premiered a live action film following the same story as the beloved animated tale.

Coming October 2018 is another tale spun from Rudyard Kipling’s words.

In this interview, director Andy Serkis recounts how Mowgli used the latest in motion capture technology to bring the actors’ voices into the film’s somewhat familiar characters.

Serkis also explains how this film will be different from the G and PG rated films Disney has brought us. Say so long to musical numbers and happy-go-lucky storyline and hello to a tenacious take on a classic tale that will keep creatives guessing until the premiere.
