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.
This is the fourth collaboration between director Jon Favreau and composer John Debney; they had previously worked together on Elf (2003), Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005) and Iron Man 2 (2010). This is also John Debney 's thirteenth musical score for a Disney movie.
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
All the elephants in the film appear to be male - they all have tusks, and in Asian elephants, females lack tusks. Males do not form herds as depicted here.
The end credits show a logo for Fantasound, the stereophonic sound system developed for Fantasia (1940), side by side with the Dolby Atmos logo.
