Disney released images from a new photoshoot for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book yesterday and the stars of the shoot don’t seem to be the actors.
The images are beautifully taken, featuring each animal with the actor who voices it. The only human actually shown in the film will be Neel Sethi, as Mowgli.
The photos feature Idris Elba with Shere Khan, Giancarlo Esposito with Akela, Sir Ben Kingsley with Bagheera, Scarlett Johansson with Kaa, Lupita Nyong’o with Raksha, and Christopher Walken in front of King Louie the ape.
The Jungle Book hits theaters April 15th.
What do you think of the pictures?
