Director Jon Favreau’s much-anticipated live-action reboot of "The Jungle Book" doesn't open until April 15, but the trailers released have already given us a wonderful glimpse into his vision of the magical world of Rudyard Kipling's iconic 1894 novel. Now, Walt Disney Studios have given us some gorgeous new advertisements for the movie with a wonderful twist behind them — the voice actors pose next to CGI renderings of the animal characters they lend their voices to, with stunning results!
"The Jungle Book" is expected to be a visually unique film experience, as virtually all of the movie is animated except for the character Mowgli, who is played by newcomer Neel Sethi. The animals are voiced by some serious A-listers, though, and the photos captured here are truly gorgeous: Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, Sir Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha and Idris Elba as Shere Khan are all guaranteed to make you 100% more pumped for this movie. Check out the awesome photos below.
