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.
Actor Neel Sethi said that since he never actually worked with real animals on set during filming, director Jon Favreau would on occasion stand in for where the animals would be present, most notably as Shere Khan lunging out from the tall grass.
Many strange tales are told of this jungle, but none so strange as the tale of the cub we call Mowgli.
Bandar-log ("monkey-people") is incorrectly pronounced in the film. The correct pronunciation of "log" is "logue", to rhyme with "vogue".
The Disney logo and the film title zoom away into the jungle landscape.
