Los Angeles: “The Jungle Book”, starring Neel Sethi a 12-year-old boy as Mowgli, is the upcoming adventure fantasy 3D film of filmmaker Jon Favreau’s which will show the Indian-American boy who survives in the jungle among various species of animals.

The trailer of “The Jungle Book” was released on Sunday during the Super Bowl broadcast.

The trailer opens with Mowgli, who is raised by Indian wolves, being chased by a black panther who gains ground and leaps on top of him.

The black panther Bagheera, voiced by actor Ben Kingsley, stood over Mowgli and said, “If you can’t learn to run with the pack, one of these days you’ll be someone’s dinner.”

The Bengal tiger Shere Khan, voiced by Idris Elba, was then seen sniffing out Mowgli during a gathering of jungle dwellers.

Mowgli was suddenly chased by Shere Khan and narrowly escaped.

He then embarked on a journey of self discovery and along the way was lured by the seductive python Kaa, voiced by Scarlett Johansson, and also contended with the silver-tongued orangutan King Louie, voiced by Christopher Walken.

Mowgli was aided by Bagheera as well as the friendly bear Baloo, voiced by Bill Murray, as he faced dangers in the jungle.

A remake of the 1967 film of the same name, “The Jungle Book” is set to release on April 15.(IANS)(image: youtube.com)
