The Jungle Book questions

The trailer for Jon Favreau‘s reimagining of The Jungle Book hit the web today (watch The Jungle Book trailer now if you haven’t already), and the filmmaker has taken to twitter to answer some of the fans questions. Since not everyone is following Favreau’s tweets, I thought I’d round-up the interesting answers and present them to you in a more digestible format (a blog post).

Also I tweeted this, but I wanted to bring this to everyone’s attention here on the site: After watching The Jungle Book trailer, consider this: 99% of the animals and environments you see in that trailer were created with CG. The film was all shot in a studio in downtown Los Angeles. Mowgli, the human boy, is the only live-action character, and aside from the ground he stood on, most of the environment around him was created digitally. Judging from the early footage in the trailer, I’m impressed. Hit the jump to read Favreau answer some Jungle Book questions and talk bout how he created the film and more.

Right now Zoe Saldana is the star of three successful film franchises.

So her casting in an upcoming graphic novel adaptation should be a welcome addition.

A new report has Zoe Saldana joining I Kill Giants, an adaptation of Joe Kelly‘s graphic novel of the same name that is being produced by Chris Columbus, the director who kicked off the Harry Potter franchise with the first two films. Read More »
