Jungle Book


Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of the little boy who lives among the jungle creatures comes to life in this lush and exciting animated video. When little Mowgli toddles into the heart of the Seeonee Wolf Pack, the jungle is never the same. Though he is adopted by the wolves, he is hated by the evil tiger Shere Khan, who vows to destroy him.

With the help of his teachers, the big-hearted bear Baloo and the wise panther Bagheera, the boy learns the language of the wild and the secrets of Jungle Law. He even wins the friendship of Kaa the Python and helps to outwit the sneaky Bander-Log monkeys! But it will take more than a few tricks to protect himself and his friends from danger when Shere Khan returns to the jungle. Packed with breathtaking adventures and unforgettable animal characters, “Jungle Book” is an enchanting tale of honor and respect for all creatures.
