This first trailer for The Jungle Book over at Entertainment Weekly actually looks pretty gosh darn gorgeous. It looks like they’ve taken a cue from Life of Pi and borrowed some of its stylistic qualities, trying to blur the line between CGI and physical space. The music is impeccably set, and even gave me a few chills here and there. If the entire movie can line up with the promise of this trailer, then this movie’s one that’s not to be missed.
Plus, would you look at that stellar cast? Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Sir Ben Kingsley, and Christopher freakin’ Walken. That might have just sold me completely, here. Andy Serkis and Benedict Cumberbatch might have a pretty high bar to get over with this one come 2017.
The Jungle Book comes out April 2016.
