“Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” Movie Review and Trailer

This, Andy Serkis directed version of the jungle book, was scheduled to arrive in theaters at the very same time as Jon Favreau’s live action version of Disney’s “The Jungle Book”. “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” was pushed back a year, but, ultimately ended up on Netflix.

Life is tough in the jungle…..and in Hollywood. 😉

Bagheera and Mowgli

After his parents were killed by the vicious tiger, Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch), the baby man-cub was taken by a kindly black panther, Bagheera (Christian Bale), to the wolves who would raise the man cub as: Mowgli (Rohan Chand).


Befriended by a bear, Baloo (Andy Serkis) and an albino wolf cub, Bhoot (Louis Ashbourne Serkis), Mowgli grows into a strong man-cub, but, one with a yearning as he overlooks the man village.

Many seasons later, Mowgli thinks of himself as a wolf even though he can’t compete with them them physically….and eventually is told to leave the pack and go where he belongs: To the man village.

When he does….the laws of the jungle change as Mowgli……

Oh, to see what happens, you can stream this movie on Netflix. 🙂

“Mowgli: The Legend of the Jungle” is a VERY DARK and violent version of the book by Rudyard Kipling, totally unlike the Disney movies….ain’t no singing and dancing here, but, there are lots of realistic looking animals (all beat up and scarred), tense jungle situations, death, killings, and blood (but no gore). This movie is good for the older kids in your family, or the adults. The young kids can watch the Disney+ versions.
