After a threat from the tiger Shere Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self discovery with the help of panther, Bagheera, and free spirited bear, Baloo.
Though Baloo looks like a Himalayan brown bear in this incarnation, Bagheera still refers to him as a sloth bear as in the original book and The Jungle Book (1967). The "sloth" is more to represent Baloo's sleepy and lazy nature.
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
Many of the animals featured in the film are oversized, for example Kaa, the wolves, and several of the monkey species.
The end credits show a logo for Fantasound, the stereophonic sound system developed for Fantasia (1940), side by side with the Dolby Atmos logo.
