Trailer For The Jungle Book

Two weeks out from launch, Disney has all hands at the pump in preparation for the arrival of Jon Favreau’s big-budget rendition of The Jungle Book, rolling out a series of character posters, featurettes and today, an all-new IMAX trailer.
Introduced by Star Wars: The Force Awakens alum Lupita Nyong’o – she’ll play Raksha, foster parent to Mowgli, in Disney’s reboot – there’s no shortage of impressive CGI to gawk at, not to mention a few slivers of new footage. Among them are new shots of Scarlett Johansson as the oddly sinister Kaa and Ben Kingsley’s watchful protector, Bagheera. Christopher Walken (King Louie) and Giancarlo Esposito as Akela round out the starry lineup.

Disney is ready to pump new blood into Rudyard Kipling’s classic fairytale of old come April 15, and though Favreau’s The Jungle Book is certainly easy on the eyes, the jury’s still out on whether the modern retelling can make the necessary dent at the box office in two weeks’ time – and that’s before the arrival of Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book: Origins in 2017.
