‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle Book’ set for theaters late November, then on Netflix

Not much has been known the Andy Serkis Jungle Book project, now titled Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle Book, after Netflix picked up the rights to the film from Warner Bros.

With a new trailer and poster for the film, Netflix has changed course on its release strategy and will be dropping the film in theaters at the end of November and on the streaming service next month. Check out the trailer below and the poster at the bottom with the film’s synopsis.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is getting an exclusive limited theatrical engagement beginning November 29, 2018 in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and London before launching globally on Netflix and in additional U.S. and U.K. theaters on December 7, 2018.

Andy Serkis has made a career as the premiere motion-capture actor (Gollum in the LOTR/Hobbit series, Caesar in the new Planet of the Apes film) and now steps behind the camera with this high profile film project.

This film stars Rohan Chand (Mowgli), Matthew Rhys (John Lockwood), and Freida Pinto (Messua) in human, onscreen roles with voice performances by Christian Bale (Bagheera), Cate Blanchett (Kaa), Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan), Naomie Harris (Nisha), Andy Serkis (Baloo), Peter Mullan (Akela), Eddie Marsan (Vihaan), Jack Reynor (Brother Wolf), and Tom Hollander (Tabaqui).

Here’s the official synopsis for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle:

Acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis reinvents Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Mowgli (Rohan Chand) has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilized world of man. Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys and Naomie Harris lead an all-star cast along with newcomer Rohan Chand in this visually spectacular and emotionally moving adventure.
