New Jungle Book Trailer: It’s Like The Lion King, But Live-Action and Terrifying

By

Did you love Disney's animated animal movies like The Jungle Book and The Lion King as a kid? Then the studio's new live-action Jungle Book will terrify you. In a new trailer for the film, which shows off to have a very Scar-and-Mufasa rivalry between Shere Khan and Bagheera — plus a scene reminiscent of that wildebeest stampede! — we see a whole lot more of Disney's live-action world. All of Hollywood's biggest stars signed on for the chance to voice CGI animals in the remake (except for people like Benedict Cumberbatch and Andy Serkis, who are voicing CGI animals in the competing Jungle Book: Origins). We've got Bill Murray as Baloo, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Christopher Walken as King Louie, and Lupita Nyong'o as Raksha. Hey, was hearing Bill Murray hum the "Bear Necessities" on your bucket list? Because now you can check that off. Watch the latest trailer above and sneak a more enigmatic peek at the film below.
