MOWGLI - Official 1st Trailer

Published on May 21, 2018
Watch the new trailer for #Mowgli starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Freida Pinto. Only in theaters October 19.
Motion capture and live action are blended for “Mowgli,” a new, big-screen, 3D adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book. The film features an impressive roster of stars under the direction of Andy Serkis.
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.
The actors performing the roles of the story’s central animal characters are: Oscar winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter,” the “Dark Knight” Trilogy) as the cunning panther, Bagheera; Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “The Aviator”) as the sinister snake, Kaa; Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game,” “Avengers: Infinity War”) as the fearsome tiger, Shere Khan; Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight,” “Skyfall”) as Nisha, the female wolf, who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; and Andy Serkis (the “Planet of the Apes” trilogy, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) as the wise bear, Baloo. On the human side, Matthew Rhys (“The Post”) is Lockwood; Freida Pinto (“Knight of Cups”) is Messua; and young actor Rohan Chand (“The Hundred-Foot Journey,” “Bad Words”) will play Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves.
Rounding out the cast are Peter Mullan (“Tommy’s Honour”), as the leader of the wolf pack, Akela; Jack Reynor (“Transformers: Age of Extinction”), as Mowgli’s brother Wolf; Eddie Marsan (TV’s “Ray Donovan”), as Nisha’s mate, Vihaan; and Tom Hollander (“Breathe”) as the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui.
“Mowgli” is produced by Steve Kloves (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), Jonathan Cavendish (“Breathe,” performance capture producer on “Godzilla”), and David Barron (the “Harry Potter” films), with Nikki Penny serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Kloves’ daughter, Callie Kloves.
Serkis’s creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Michael Seresin (“War for the Planet of the Apes”), production designer Gary Freeman (“Tomb Raider”) and editors Mark Sanger (Oscar winner, “Gravity”), Alex Marquez (“Snowden”) and Jeremiah O’Driscoll (“Flight”). The music is composed by Nitin Sawhney (“Breathe”).

  • I’m...a little confused on why this was made? Especially after the Disney live action?

  • Is this jungle book 2 or a seperate film?

  • I can’t believe this is not a sequel. Hollywood running out of ideas so bad they copied a movie made 2 years ago 😂😂

  • 1:03 - So dark, we can't see anything.

  • Yawn

  • The real story Disney doesn't want you to know..

  • Jungle book?

  • Why all the cats and wolves faces look like humans? Like thier eyes n all?

  • So why does Warner Brothers always look at Disney and go "Oh, let's do that....but darker."

  • didnt this movie comeout already?

  • Please just Give up.

  • It's was always about Disney and Warner Bros.

  • I will see this

  • is this suppose to be a transgender agenda to manipulate kids?

  • Great WB ! now you should make a movie called "TONY STARK" as well. Why do you have to do it when "the jungle book" was already there?

  • Wait... didn't they just do this?

  • This looks more interesting than the disney film

  • So, this is where the bear will sing Bare Necessities?

  • I feel like this just happened

  • I am confused, is that a boy or a girl?

  • I hear yanny

  • The Jungle Book is like MCU Mowgli is like DCEU

  • I got chills 😨😨

  • No reconozco la voz de cumberbatch :(

  • I think its not a sequel to the movie the jungle book which was a great movie now its a new movie its not a fun movie i think it says that it is dark so it may be good r my not but the boy made it look cooler


  • I will not see this now or ever only because its the 3rd or 4th time they have tried it

  • Enough now come on

  • So mowgli sounds like an Eton educated boy

  • It seems to be exactly like the book. Which means that ending is gona be fucking brutal.

  • I'm speechless

  • The animals’ faces slightly look like those of their actors! Motion capture 🙌🏼

  • Another fucking remake holly shit make something NEW

  • So I see they are are going to force a live action version of the jungle book down a throats every few years till we take it lol

  • Nd hit lyk for tabaaki....

  • This move is literally based on the book written by sir RUDYARD KIPLING. Nd thats why this is more true darker nd thrilling. Earlier one was based on the disneys animated movie made for children. PS. Kaa is a male nd again they dubbed him by a woman😠

  • Omg I cant wait till this comes out

  • Christian Bale?

  • Hmm, cool.

  • I'm in love with the visuals

  • More like jungle book..... Indian background....the cast is really awesome....

  • Looks good! Only wish they hadn't anthropomorphised the animals' faces quite so much..

  • Who asked for this movie

  • Do you fucking idiot disney fans know that The Jungle Book stories were written in the 1800s by Rudyard Kipling, and disney had nothing to do with writing them? Disney wasn't even started until the 1920s. It's called an adaptation, you fucko.

  • Ayeee.... what a trailer wow

  • Your not a wolf mowgli! You are a man mowgli!

  • Ugh another horrible looking CGI fest

  • Didn't they already do this ?
