CineEurope: ‘The Jungle Book’ ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ updates

Disney is still real quiet on details surrounding the upcoming films The Jungle Book, a live-action adaptation of the classic animated film, and Alice Through The Looking Glass, the sequel to the blockbuster Alice in Wonderland film.

Director Jon Favreau offered some words from the set of The Jungle Book, which he said was a combination of the “best of animation, live action and motion capture.”

Behind the scenes footage and film clips were shown of Alice Through The Looking Glass with The Muppet’s director James Bobin at the helm.

Disney’s head of EMEA and U.K. studio distribution Tony Chambers said that Burton “was deeply involved,” describing him as an “ambassador to Underland.”

In a video, star Mia Wasikowska said that “James [Bobin] had taken the world that Burton had created and made it his own.”

Favreau directs an all-star cast: Idris Elba (Shere Khan), Scarlett Johansson (Kaa), Bill Murray (Baloo), Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), Christopher Walken as King Louie with Neel Sethi as Mowgli.

The film also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Lupita Nyong’o and Emjay Anthony.

The Jungle Book arrives in theaters on April 15, 2016.
