We just saw the new live action version of Disney’s “The Jung;e Book”.  My son loved the animated version, as well as Rudyard Kipling’s story.  As a huge animal lover, I knew he would love this one, and he certainly did.  It’s a little dark for the littlest viewers (there is some animal violence, nothing graphic at all) but some of the little peanuts got scared, so be warned.


My boy is 8, and I think he is a great age for this movie. My husband and I really enjoyed it as well, and I’m not a person to go nuts for children’s movies.  It was sweet, kept everyone’s attention, and was really, really well done. Not to mention the voices were fun- especially Christopher Walken as King Louie, haha.

Fun “Easter Egg” moment- Mowgli in the monkey temple.  Fans of SNL and Walken in general will get a kick out of this fun moment.


My son can’t wait to see it again, and has been raving about it to all his friends.  It’s a very different movie then the animated version you are used to and have seen, and I think you will like it.  I don’t want to give much away, but I recommend it highly. The Jungle Book opens this Friday, make sure to grab your tickets and head in.


Cast: Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson, Giancarlo Esposito, Neel Sethi and Christopher Walken,

Synopsis: “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.

  1. That movie sounds great. My girls were watching the previews when we were at the theatre the other day and were looking forward to watching it. Glad your son really liked it.

  2. Glad you and your son liked it! I just wrote my review and mentioned how a little girl in the screening I attended was reduced to tears… Def not the light hearted version we know from the animated classic. But isn’t it just stunning visually??


  3. That sounds like a cute movie
