Earlier this year, Netflix stepped in and acquired worldwide rights to Andy Serkis’. Mowgli, a new, darker retelling of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.
The film, which was originally set to be distributed by Warner Bros. released a brand new trailer today which shows a whole lot more of the classic story we all know and love.
Acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis reinvents Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Mowgli (Rohan Chand) has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilized world of man. Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys, and Naomie Harris lead an all-star cast along with newcomer Rohan Chand in this visually spectacular and emotionally moving adventure.
