I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for the Blu-ray version of Disney’s The Jungle Book to be released next year! It was one of our family’s favorite movies growing up and we still find ourselves quoting lines from the movie often. We say “now don’t start that again” in our bad British accents every time we have a back and forth ‘I don’t know’ conversation about what we want to eat or do that day. If you’re totally left in the dark on what that line is all about, then be sure to pick up your copy when it’s released! I can’t wait to check out all the new bonus features included with the upcoming Diamond Edition release, including the bonus alternate ending. Disney does a wonderful job bringing to animation the classic Rudyard Kipling novel and features the beloved characters of Mowgli, Baloo and Bagheera and all your other favorites. This is definitely a timeless classic that every Disney fan should add to their collection.
