From time to time, a movie enters out home and goes into what we call “heavy rotation.” The movie of the moment is The Jungle Book. Now out on Blu-Ray DVD and Digital HD, this movie is exceptional in every way. This movie includes the incredible acting of one extraordinary little boy against amazing special effects and wonderful voice acting. You don’t have to take my word for it; just see what my kids have to say.
In addition to the incredible movie itself, the Blu-Ray and Digital HD copes include a rich selection of bonus features:
“The Jungle Book” Reimagined – Jon Favreau sits down with producer Brigham Taylor and visual effects supervisor Robert Legato to discuss “The Jungle Book” and reflect on the years they devoted to the reimagining of this timeless tale. \
I Am Mowgli – Follow the extraordinary journey of 12-year-old Neel Sethi, who was selected from thousands of hopefuls worldwide to play Mowgli “alongside” some of today’s biggest movie stars.
King Louie’s Temple: Layer by Layer – Viewers are granted rare and unique access to the development of the “I Wan’na Be Like You” sequence in which King Louie attempts to coerce Mowgli into giving up Man’s deadly “red flower” (fire).
Audio Commentary – Favreau delivers his scene-by-scene perspective on the live-action adventure “The Jungle Book” with all the candor and humor you’d expect from this multi-talented actor-writer-director-producer.
