That’s right folks! The next generation of a classic childhood story is steaming it’s way to a picture house (does anyone still call them that?) near you and is shaping up to be pretty gosh darn special.
With the likes of Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and with Beauty and the Beast getting the modern day make over, this time it was the turn of Rudyard Kipling’s (who’s house we recently visited and it’s well worth a trip!) classic to jump into this century and take on a whole new light will full feature special effects and live action cast.

So what’s it all about?? The man-cub Mowgli flees the jungle after a threat from the tiger Shere Khan. Guided by Bagheera the panther and the bear Baloo, Mowgli embarks on a journey of self-discovery, though he also meets creatures who don’t have his best interests at heart.
Directed by the awesome Jon Favreau who also directed, produced and stared in the Iron Man films, Elf (and also produced the Avengers films too!), there are some pretty high hopes for this next adventure and from what we can see already is sure not to disappoint.
So….are you ready?? If not, we’re pretty sure we can help you out with our range of official Jungle Book Merchandise including Mugs, TShirts, Jumpers and more.
