Lombardo Boyar, Renee Victor, and Anthony Gonzalez in Coco (2017)

This film is nothing short of wonderful. Despite having a recurring theme of death, it really can serve as a way of remembering those you have lost and remembering where you came from. The world this film is set in is nothing short of beautiful and magical, all while informative. I have heard of Dia de Los Muertos growing up, but I simply dismissed it as a Mexican Halloween celebration. Boy, was I wrong! The holiday is all about family and honoring and maintaining a connection to those you have lost. There really is life after death and this film really hones in on that. Whether you are a believer or not this is a film for your whole family. In the spirit of Thanksgiving–be thankful for everyone and everything you have around you!

It is hard to believe, The Jungle Book, written in 1894 by Rudyard Kipling, is still one of the most popular stories in the world. The story is also still being adapted into films with the latest take being a much darker version of previous adaptations in Mowgli by Andy Serkis!

Blending live action and performance capture, the story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli (Rohan Chand) raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India.  As he learns the often-harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis) and a panther named Bagheera (Christian Bale), Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own.  All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. (Benedict Cumberbatch). But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins. The other story’s central animal characters are: Kaa, the snake (Cate Blanchett); the leader of the wolf pack, Akela (Peter Mullan); the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander); Nisha, the female wolf (Naomie Harris), who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; Nisha’s mate, Vihaan (Eddie Marsan); and Mowgli’s Brother Wolf (Jack Reynor).

Mowgli looks absolutely amazing and really and is completely captivating. We think we know the story of Mowgli, the wild boy and his fight against the bloodthirsty tiger, Shere Khan, but here it seems there is much more to the story this time around from what we see in the trailer. First, Shere Khan’s paw seems to be damaged, Mowgli has returned to the jungle as he is an outcast from both humans and animals.

We cannot wait to see more trailers as they are released! For awhile there we were wondering how they could make this film captivating so shortly after Disney’s live-action adaptation. This, my friends, may very well give us a whole new appreciation for what it means to be a “man cub in the jungle!”
