New “The Jungle Book” Cast Photo Shoot

THE JUNGLE BOOK - Lupita Nyong'o voices Raksha, a mother wolf who cares deeply for all of her pups—including man-cub Mowgli, whom she adopts as one of her own when he's abandoned in the jungle as an infant. "She is the protector, the eternal mother," says Nyong'o. "The word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own." Photo by: Sarah Dunn. ©2016 Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Walt Disney Studios released some gorgeous new images that feature some of the cast members of their upcoming live-action “The Jungle Book”, paired alongside the CGI version of the character they voice in the film. The characters in the pictures look just as stunning as the state-of-the-art CGI seen in the film’s trailers and posters!  Check out the gallery below, paired with quotes from the actors giving a description from their point-of-view on the character they play:

With such a stellar cast and amazing CGI effects, as well as a strong, classic story based on Rudyard Kipling’s tales it is sure to be an amazing film. This movie will also be a special one for Disney Studios, as it seems to have elements from Disney’s animated version of “The Jungle Book” (the last animated film Walt Disney himself worked on), such as Baloo whistling “Bear Necessities”, and the inclusion of King Louie, who was a character written specifically for the Disney 1967 animated film. The film will be released April 15th, and tickets are on sale now here.

  1. The Jungle Book promises to be fabulous. Can’t wait to see Mowgli and Bagheera again, and even the evilness of Kaa! Thanks for sharing the images, they look amazing.
