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.
Sir Ben Kingsley described Bagheera as a military character: "He's probably a Colonel, he is instantly recognizable by the way he talks, how he acts, and what his ethical code is."
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
Though Baloo is referred to as a sloth bear, he much more closely resembles a Himalayan bear (a subspecies of brown bear) and, as the name suggests, Himalayan bears live exclusively in the Himalayas.
The end credits show a logo for Fantasound (at 1:45:13), the stereophonic sound system developed for Fantasia (1940), side by side with the Dolby Atmos logo.
