The Jungle is JUMPIN'!
The Jungle Book follows the ups and downs of the man-cub Mowgli as he makes his way back to the human village with wise panther Bagheera to escape ruthless tiger Shere Khan. Along the way, he meets unforgettable friends and foes including mad King Louie of the Apes, the hypnotic snake Kaa and the loveable, happy-go-lucky bear Baloo, who teaches Mowgli about true friendship.

One of Disney's most memorable movies.

Hollywood has decided to re-make this so I thought I’d give the 1967 Disney animation another look before going into the new one.

It’s been many many years since I saw this but The Jungle Book is every bit as warm and charming as I remembered. It seems to pulse with a jazz-beat that sinks its claws into you and doesn’t let go. Something about the pace and style of animation as we follow Mowgli through the jungle makes the whole film just happily breeze by.

The production values aren’t quite that of the Disney classics from the 40s and 50s, but the catchy songs, excellent voice acting and concise, memorable script make The Jungle Book an all-time great.
