New 'Jungle Book' TV Spot Further Reminds Us How Amazing This Film Will Be

By Matt O'Bryant

Disney has released a new TV spot for The Jungle Book! The new footage shown reveals more of the incredible live-action/CG update of the classic Rudyard Kipling story, and may I just say that this film looks incredible. The CGI in this film looks incredible and to just let everyone know in case you don't. Every single things in this film is CGI except for the young actor Neel Sethi who is playing Mowgli. That's right folks, every single thing you see, from the blades of grass, the water, to the beautiful animals is all freaking CGI! 

Last year at Disney's D23 Expo director Jon Favreau revealed that this film will use the most advanced forms of computer graphics the movie going audience have ever seen on the big-screen. I for one am truly impressed and will be there on opening night! Check out the new TV spot below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.

Here's the official synopsis for The Jungle Book.

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of selfdiscovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.
