In this 2016 big screen version of The Jungle Book an orphan boy is still raised in the jungle with the help of a pack of wolves, a bear, and a black panther.
This time it’s just with the help of CGI and with the help of Iron Man director Jon Favreau.
This Jungle Book, just like the 1967 classic, is from Walt Disney Pictures.
The live action Disney The Jungle Book, which cost over $175 million to produce, took in over $100 million during its first three days in U.S. movie theaters.
The 1967 animated The Jungle Book movie, during its initial theatrical release and subsequent theatrical rereleases, made over $141 million at U.S. movie theaters, not accounting for inflation. In today’s box office dollars, the original, animated Disney The Jungle Book would have earned over $300 million.
