Netflix releases trailer for Andy Serkis' 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle'

Netflix released the trailer of one of the most awaited movies of this year, 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle,' on Wednesday.

Going by the looks of the trailer, this film promises a visual treat for all  'Jungle Book' fans. 

The trailer not only brings back fond memories of Rudyard Kipling's 'The Jungle Book,' but director Andy Serkis seems to have reinvented this tale of Kipling to where the protagonist is torn between two worlds and whether to accept his destiny and become a legend.

Newcomer Rohan Chand will be seen playing the role of our favorite Mowgli and it looks like Chand has done a very good job.



 

Chand will be joined by an all-star cast where Serkis plays the role of Mowgli's confidant, Baloo the bear, Christian Bale plays the panther Bagheera, Cate Blanchett portrays the snake Kaa, and Benedict Cumberbatch will be seen as the evil tiger Shere Khan.

Other actors like Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys, and Naomie Harries are also a part of the film. We're pretty sure, this would have been an amazing experience for the young upcoming star to be a part of the film, which in itself as become a part of movie folklore.

Director Serkis has avoided a direct interpretation of Disney's 'The Jungle Book,' and has chosen to delve deeper into the darker side of the baby left in the jungle and who was raised by the wolves.

Since Shere Khan poses a constant danger to Mowgli, he is adviced by Bagheera to return to the world of humans, which is where he belongs. Mowgli is seen torn between the two worlds and has a choice to make, a difficult one indeed.
