We're going back to the jungle.
Andy Serkis, the film's director has brought forth the first Mowgli trailer, that is advertised as a live-action/CG retelling of the famed Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book.
Joined by Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan), is Serkis (Baloo), Cate Blanchett (Kaa), Christian Bale (Bagheera), Matthew Rhys (John Lockwood), and Rohan Chand (Mowgli).
A great aspect of the film's challenge is differentiating itself from Jon Favreau and the 2016 Disney adaptation that has a worldwide hit with $966 million across the globe.
Serkis stated at CinemaCon last month, "People are so used to the 1968 [Disney animated version]. This is trying to delve into Kipling's book and the journey for Mowgli as a outsider, as an other, trying to find his identity."
Warner Bros will be releasing Mowgli on October 2019.
