Official artwork poster of the film

Wikipedia describes this a a live action version although it is pretty much CGI from beginning to end.

Actually it’s an excellent remake of the cartoon,  with only one or two songs. We spend a bit more time finding out about Mowgli, why he’s in the jungle and about the wolves who brought him up.

Shere Khan looks fake, though that’s probably on purpose since he’s the only character to actually die in the movie

Most of the cartoon is retold in a slightly different way with each of the animal characters having their own motivations.

I liked the ending, with Shere Khan dead, Mowgli no longer ‘Has’ to leave the jungle and so he doesn’t.
