SYNOPSIS

The final film to be supervised by Walt Disney himself – and one of his most beloved works – The Jungle Book unfolds like an intelligent comic-strip fairy tale. We follow the bony Mowgli, a small boy raised by the beasts of the jungle. These beasts of prey, including bears and panthers, snakes and tigers are realised in stunning hand-drawn animations, bursting with exuberant personality and performance. Softening the darker elements of Rudyard Kipling's original novel, The Jungle Book does not constitute a faithful adaptation; instead it should be taken as a wonderfully original tale of boyhood, a story of friendship, and a triumph in pencil animation.

Screens with The Gruffalo 2009 by Max Lang and Jakob Schuh.
