Mowgli is another adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book. The film was pushed back after the release of Disney’s 2016 live action adaptation. This one is directed by Andy Serkis and stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris and Rohan Chance.

The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India.  As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own.  All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan.  But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

Mowgli will is released in the UK on 19 October 2018.
