We have a Jungle Book 2016 sneak peak for you in the form of two clips which show of what what the photo-real animals look like on screen and a legacy feature video.
The new film is based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and is inspired by Disney’s classic 1967 animated film, with an approach all its own.
“We embrace the mythic qualities of Kipling in the more intense tonal aspects of the film,” says director Jon Favreau, “but we left room for what we remember from the ’67 film, and sought to maintain those charming Disneyesque aspects.”
We have got up-to-the-minute technology to telling the story in a contemporary and immersive way, blending live-action performances with stunning CG environments and extraordinary photo-real animal characters that artists stylized to elevate the storytelling.
“The Jungle Book is a universal coming-of-age story that everyone can relate to,” says producer Brigham Taylor. “Walt told the story through traditional cell animation and now we have the technology to actually bring these characters to life, make them photo-real and put a real kid into the environment in a seamless, believable way. The opportunity to be able to show that with today’s technology was irresistible.”
