The Jungle Book was a must-read when I was an eight year old Cub Scout. It was the inspiration for the program. And, somewhere around 1967, or so, I saw the cartoon Disney movie. Today, I saw the live-action/CGI release of the Disney movie. Excellent!
The little boy who played Mowgli was excellent. The rest of the characters were computer generated, but the voices were excellent too. Christopher Walken did an excellent job as King Louie.
(You’ll have to see the movie to hear him sing.)
It is suspenseful enough for adults. In fact, it might be a little too intense for little children. There are scenes where the jungle animals attack each other and I could see that being upsetting to a small child.
Other than that, I highly recommend Jungle Book. It’s not your old kid’s cartoon.
Oh, and yes, it does have some singing in it. There’s an excellent rendition of Bear Necessities as well as I Want to Be Like You.
It must have been a day for kicking back because later, Elizabethe and I had dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse.
Elizabethe is still moving her books from the old shelves to the newly made shelves upstairs. Now we have some old particle board laminate shelves to get rid of or repurpose. I’m not sure what we’re going to do with them.
