The big news in Disney movies right now is the visually stunning reimagining of “The Jungle Book,” directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Chef”) using state-of-the-art technology to completely fabricate an immersive 3D world around a sole human actor, newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli.
This Monday saw the grand world premiere of this version of “The Jungle Book” at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, and I was lucky enough to attend the red carpet ceremony before the screening. It was certainly a memorable experience.
There’s much more coverage on “The Jungle Book” coming to Inside the Magic later this week. Check back here for my full-length review and an in-depth sit-down with the cast and director at the international press conference. And don’t miss “The Jungle Book” when it opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, April 15th.
