Academy Award-winning actor Ben Kingsley has been cast as the voice of Bagheera in Disney’s upcoming The Jungle Book. Directed by Jon Favreau from a script by Justin Marks, The Jungle Book combines live action and animated filmmaking.
The script, which is being written by Justin Marks and centers on a boy named Mowgli, who is raised by animals in the jungle. Bagheera serves as his mentor and best friend, protecting him from the dangers of the wild, including the carnivorous Shere Khan.
Most of the animals will be computer-generated, but Disney is reportedly searching for a live action actor to play Mowgli.
The Jungle Book arrives in theaters in 3D on October 9, 2015.
