  1. There was already a live action Jungle Book–in 1994. I thought it was very well done, but maybe I just like looking at Jason Scott Lee without a shirt on! Of course, I’ve always loved Cary Elwes, too, and seeing him as a greedy, conniving bad guy was too much fun.

  2. Sounds like it would be neat, but I don’t know if I would really care to watch it. Animation is better than live action, anyways.
