The Jungle Book

We haven’t heard much about Jon Favreau‘s live-action hybrid adaptation of The Jungle Book since production ended. The studio released a piece of concept art that revealed what the project might look like once it is done, and the filmmaker had Instagrammed a bunch of behind-the-scenes images showing the progress.

Otherwise, however, it’s been pretty much radio silence since December of last year. And so, this year’s D23 Expo was the public’s first major look at the new project. Happily, The Jungle Book did not disappoint. Get our Jungle Book D23 footage and panel recap — and see the first Jungle Book poster — after the jump.

“When Disney does a fairy tale, it becomes the definitive version of that story,” said John Lasseter. “One that doesn’t have a definitive version is Jack and the Beanstalk.” So began Disney’s announcement of their next animated fairy tale movie, Gigantic, at D23.

Disney is already in production on the feature, which has assembled a top-notch team: Nathan Greno (Tangled) is directing, Dorothy McKim (Get a Horse!) is directing, and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen) are providing music. More details on the Disney Gigantic movie after the jump.  Read More »
