Disney has released a new clip from the upcoming live-action The Jungle Book allowing Shere Khan to make a grand entrance. Looks like the animal speech is being handled pretty well; the lips move with the speech.
Shere Khan is magnificent, and Mowgli is one cute little moppet, hiding there behind the rock with the assembled wolf pack in front of him. The wolves have a range of fur colors and patterning, giving them the look of individuals.
Disney also has a brand-new, “fully immersive site” thelawofthejungle.com. What loaded looks lovely, but it is pretty slow-loading at this point, at least over wifi.
The movie itself comes to theaters on April 15, 2016.
