TRAILER — “Mowgli” First Official Trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for Mowgli, a darker adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book from director Andy Serkis.
The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.
Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris, and Andy Serkis star.
Mowgli opens October 19.
