'The Jungle Book' Gets A New TV Spot "Live the Legend"

By Matt O'Bryant

Disney has released another amazing TV spot for their highly anticipated live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book. The new spot gives us some cool new footage and reveals more of the classic tune "Bear Necessities" from the original film. It will be interesting see how many of the actual songs from the original film make it into this live-action adaptation. The more and more I see of this film, the more excited I get, the effects are amazing and It may very well be the most impressive use of live-action mixed with CGI ever on the big-screen. Check out the new spot below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.

Check out the new TV spot below:

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Chef,” “Iron Man,” “Elf”), 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 self-discovery, 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 Johannsson), 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.
