Mowgli’ film to get a limited release in November before its launch on Netflix

The difference here, though, is that Mowgli isn't the typical text-to-screen translation of The Jungle Book with which most people are familiar.

Good news, guys: the new trailer for The Jungle Book live-action remake, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, just dropped and boy, it's goooood.

Netflix's Mowgli is set to air globally on the 7th of December 2018, so put the date in your calendar now and start rounding up the squad for a wholesome movie night.

Yes indeed, 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 US and United Kingdom theaters on December 7, 2018.

DUP accuses May of 'plan for border in the Irish Sea'
A spokesman added that "the government will not agree anything that brings about a hard border on the island of Ireland". But she stresses that she would never allow a divide between Northern Ireland and Britain to "come into force".

The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. Thankfully, Mowgli has his mentors Baloo and Bagheera at his side to teach him everything he needs to know about the harshness of the wilderness and how to avoid ticking off Shere Khan, who refuses to accept the human boy as a member of the animal kingdom.

Rhys and Pinto star in the film with Chand, while the other big names feature in the voice cast.

Still, the trailer is a visual treasure to behold, with Serkis stepping in to play Baloo the bear and Rohan Chand playing Mowgli. Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) will also give notes on the project as an uncredited advisor.
