Disney's 'The Jungle Book' Unleashes Extended Trailer

Disney has debuted an extended trailer for "The Jungle Book," revealing a smattering of new footage from director Jon Favreau’s live-action/CG remake.

Based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling, the film stars newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli, a man-cub raised by wolves who finds he’s no longer welcome in the jungle when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) promises to eliminate what he views as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli sets out on a journey of self-discovery, guided by the stern panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley) and the free-spirited bear Baloo (Bill Murray).

“The Jungle Book” also stars Scarlett Johansson as the hypnotizing python Kaa, Christopher Walken as the smooth-talking orangutan King Louie, Lupita Nyong’o as the protective mother wolf Raksha and Giancarlo Esposito as the wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.

The film arrives in 3D on April 15.
