by  in Movie News Comment

If you were looking for a long look at Disney’s incoming live action take on “The Jungle Book” during the Super Bowl broadcast, you didn’t see much beyond Bill Murray’s mugging for the camera as the voice of Baloo. But the studio did just drop a much longer, more action-packed look at director Jon Favreau’s take on the classic Rudyard Kipling tale.

The trailer is the first extended look we have at many of the classic animal characters being voiced by the likes of Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlet Johansson, Christopher Walken and Murray. Check it out below.

The new look also confirms that the movie will be taking its cues from the original Disney animated version.

“The Jungle Book” stars newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli and opens on April 15 in 3D.
