Disney’s live-action epic adventure “The Jungle Book,” is now available on Digital HD and on Blu-ray™! If you didn’t see this film in theaters now is the time to grab it! Of course we added it to our library and I thought a round up of jungle themed activities would be a great way to inspire you to have a fun movie night with your families.
We always check out the bonus features when we get a new movie. Bonus features depending on retailer and which version you buy include:
- “The Jungle Book” Reimagined – Favreau sits down with producer Brigham Taylor and visual effects supervisor Robert Legato to discuss “The Jungle Book” and reflect on the years they devoted to the reimagining of this timeless tale.
- I Am Mowgli – Follow the extraordinary journey of 12-year-old Neel Sethi, who was selected from thousands of hopefuls worldwide to play Mowgli “alongside” some of today’s biggest movie stars. Get a glimpse of Neel’s life before Hollywood came calling, check out his audition that sealed the deal, and see how a close-working relationship with Favreau brought out his best.
- King Louie’s Temple: Layer by Layer – So, exactly how do you create a musical number featuring one man-cub, a massive, legendary ape and an army of wild and wily monkeys in the Seeonee jungle? Viewers are granted rare and unique access to the development of the “I Wan’na Be Like You” sequence in which King Louie attempts to coerce Mowgli into giving up Man’s deadly “red flower” (fire).
- Audio Commentary – Favreau delivers his scene-by-scene perspective on the live-action adventure “The Jungle Book” with all the candor and humor you’d expect from this multi-talented actor-writer-director-producer.
Here’s what we thought of the movie if you missed it earlier this year.
This was our movie of choice during the last road trip but if you’re watching from home how about some Jungle themed activities (or activities that can be made to fit) to get the kids excited?!
