THE JUNGLE BOOK opens in theatres everywhere in 3D, RealD 3D, and IMAX 3D on April 15th!
Something parents will be intrigued with The Jungle Book, is the cast. There's Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson....and oh, yeah, Christopher Walken, just to name a few. It was great fun to learn a bit about the process of seeking out such a great cast of characters, explained by Favreau and Screenwriter, Justin Marks, as well as the search for newcomer, Neel Sethi, who is the PERFECT Mowgli. After seeing thousands of young boys, film makers knew Sethi was the boy they had been looking for as soon as they met him. Sethi captures all the charisma and innocence of Mowgli, while not afraid to stand up for himself and take on tigers, snakes and bears.
The Jungle Book's animation supervisor is Oscar®-winner Andy Jones (“Avatar,” World War Z,” and “I, Robot”). Bill Pope (“The Matrix,” “Spider-Man 2”) is director of photography, and Christopher Glass (“Arthur Newman”) serves as the production designer. Laura Jean Shannon (“Chef,” “Iron Man,” “Elf”) is costume designer, and Mark Livolsi (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Blind Side”) is editor. With a score composed by Emmy® winner and Oscar-, BAFTA- and Annie Award-nominee John Debney (“Elf,” “Iron Man 2”). Not bad, right?
