Next month Disney will release their live action version of THE JUNGLE BOOK, and we cannot wait!! Today I’m sharing a new clip from the film, but first I want to remind you to follow the hashtags #JungleBook and #JungleBookEvent as some of my awesome bloggy friends head to LA to walk the red carpet at the film’s premiere and interview some of the cast!
See that amazing photo above of Idris Elba posting with Shere Khan? Idris voices the bengal tiger who bears the scars of man, which fuel his hatred of humans. He is convinced that Mowgli poses a threat, and is determined to rid the jungle of the man-cub. “Shere Khan reigns with fear,” says Elba. “He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”
Catch the clip below to see how Mowgli and audiences meet the tiger…
