And yet, another Disney classic comes to life.



It's a remake of a remake!

It looks neat. Nothing I'd watch, but it was better than I expected. My only complaint is that it is so dark. Why must everything be so damn dark these days.

I have to admit I am curious to see how Bill Murray does as Baloo.

Seeing the name Baloo on here makes me miss Phil Harris' voice.

Hmmm. This could interest me a lot more than all the "Princess" live action remakes. Yeah. I could watch this. I've never watched the OTHER live action remake of this, so this would be an all new experience to boot.

I haven't heard any updates on Tim Burton's "Dumbo" re-imagining.

While viewing Zootopia yesterday, I got a look at the next Jungle Book trailer.

You have to have a lively personality to be King Louie.

A baby, lost in the jungle, is raised by the animals. As he grows up he feels the need to understand humankind.

Why am I such an easy mark for this kind of story? No matter how I examine this, the story of Mowgli remains one of the best storylines in cinema. And I can say that because everyone knows that when Mowgli returns to the human world he takes his animal friends with him, in a spiritual sense.

The Jungle Book is a clash of values, the human world versus the animal world, with Mowgli caught between the two.


Like you guys my knowledge of this story was formed by the Disney animated version from 1967. That's why I want to make a pitch for the 1942 live action film, "The Jungle Book" released by United Artists. I'd never seen this old movie until I ran into Prof. Nick Salerno over at Arizona State University, who convinced my entire class to sit and watch the first Jungle Book movie and fall for the actor, Sabu - maybe the best Mowgli ever!


This Is Important: you do not have to watch the 1942 Jungle Book today, or tomorrow, or in the next ten years. In fact, it does not matter when you see the 1942 version. But every Jungle Book fan must watch the 1942 film at least once in a lifetime.


The original Jungle Book movie is very outdated but it has a quiet awesomeness that modern retellings try to capture, a sort of Jungle Book Spirit. The 1942 Jungle Book film has one of the best renderings of a classic movie ending, ever!

I had to turn up the volume on this clip, when Mowgli asks for permission to enter the jungle, hearing the reply gets to me everytime, no matter how often I watch it. This old movie makes me sit-up a little bit taller in my chair. This is a movie that rewards me for my patients.

I wonder how many remember the 1994 movie with Jason Scott Lee, who was also Liu Kang from the Mortal Kombat movie a year later.
