Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book
PG | 111 min | Sunday, December 25, 1994
Based on the classic children's books, The Jungle Book and the Second Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, the 1994 Walt Disney Productions version, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book is essentially a live-action remake of the 1967 animated film.
Mowgli (Jason Scott Lee) is accompanying his wilderness guide father through India when a tiger inexplicably slaughters the father, leaving five-year old Mowgli to fend for himself. Thankfully, the boy has his pet wolf Grey Brother as a companion, and the pair manage to survive long enough to make new friends among the jungle animals.
Mowgli encounters all manner of dangerous situations, but with the help of his new-found animal friends, develops a reputation of honor, even being hailed as a hero after he defeats the great serpent Kaa with the assistance of a bejeweled dagger. Kaa survives however, and the two will eventually meet again.
Filmed internationally in India as well as in North Carolina and Tennessee, Jungle Book is beautifully filmed, especially the jungle scenes which present an often dark and forboding atmosphere.
