Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book today and amidst all the glorious CGI it also has a shit hot voice cast.
The Jungle Book is inspired by the 1967 classic cartoon, which was loosely based on a series of Rudyard Kipling stories about a young boy raised in the wilds of the Indian subcontinent.
The whole movie was shot in native 3D, and director Jon Favreau hopes fans will opt to see it in theatres on 3D Imax, which he claims is “its best form,” when it comes out April 15, 2016. “Not that it won’t look cool on a phone,” he added with a chuckle.
There’s a lot of slick moments in the trailer, but the one thing that excites me the most is the voice cast. It’s a solid lineup that includes Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johannson, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, and Christopher Walken.
Anyhow, no trailer spoilers, just have a cheeky watch for yourself:
