Did You Know?


Director Jon Favreau received the Innovation in Film award from P.E.T.A. for using all CGI animals, and not harming any real animals during the production.


Bagheera: Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.


The black panther is not a species of its own but in fact a color variation of the leopard. In several scenes it can be seen that Bagheera has spots, which he was described as having in the source novel.
