Jon Favreau coming down under for the release of The Jungle Book

Veteran director, writer and actor Jon Favreau is set to visit Sydney this month to promote the release of Disney’s new live-action take on The Jungle Book.

Favreau will attend the Australian preview screening of The Jungle Book on Thursday 31 March followed by a live Q&A, as part of a two-day press tour.

Faveau has a pretty impressive legacy attached to his name from directing blockbusters like Iron Man and Iron Man 2, writing the acclaimed comedy Swingers and acting in movies like Wolf of Wall Street, I Love You, Man and The Break-Up.

It’ll be fascinating what he has to say.

The Jungle Book releases Thursday 7 April in Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania and the Northern Territory, and on the Thursday 14 April in New South Wales, West Australia, South Australia and the ACT.
