Watch the first official trailer for a live-action The Jungle Book

Disney has released a trailer for the live-action remake of classic The Jungle Book, giving us a really epic look into how the 1967 animation will be adapted by Director Jon Favreau. With an impressive cast, including Bill Murray (as Baloo) and Idris Elba (as Shere Khan) along with newcomer Neel Sethi as the very young Mowgli), this adaptation is looking like a very slick, ambitious blockbuster. Luckily the story of The Jungle Book is so clever and emotional that the team have a great base to work off of.

The Jungle Book will be in cinemas in April of 2016 and also stars Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, and Christopher Walken as King Louie.
