Watch MOWGLI Official Trailer which seems to be a dark adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book. The live-action film Mowgli is helmed by Planet of the Apes actor Andy Serkis that features hybrid motion capture CGI and live-action, a bit like the other Jungle Book from Disney. Rohan Chand is playing the lead role in Mowgli.

The two minutes long MOWGLI Official Trailer introduced the character of Mowgli who is imprisoned in a wooden cage. He’s told by his friend Bagheera, voiced by Christian Bale, “When you were a cub, I looked you in the eye and saw no fear.” Sher Khan makes a brief appearance with a growling “My, my, how you’ve grown.” The mo-cap performances of the animals look absolutely brilliant.

Along with Mowgli trailer, a behind-the-scenes featurette sees Serkis outlining his creative vision for the film. He said, “It’s not so much a child’s fairytale. This has a reality. There is the real consequence.” Mowgli Movie also starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Freida Pinto in important roles. Christian Bale voices Bagheera, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Shere Khan and Cate Blanchett plays Kaa. Serkis, a veteran of motion capture acting, plays Baloo.
