Andy Serkis has been working on his adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book for several years, and was unable to head-off Disney’s own big budget, live-action remake of their animated film. Now, Serkis’ take on the material – titled Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle – is headed to a limited theatrical run before arriving on Netflix. Serkis has assembled an impressive line-up of voice talent to bring his animal characters to life, including Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch and more. But will audiences take to this adaptation the way they did Disney’s? Watch the Mowgli trailer below and decide for yourself.
