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!”

From the trailer we see things may be a bit grimmer this time around in the wold of Frozen. Else seems to be using her powers to try and a get across the ocean with little success thanks to a few killer waves, and Anna is ready to fight someone off with Kristoff’s sword!

There is also a mysterious girl with leaves floating around her, similar to how snow flurries surround Elsa. Does she have autumn-based or nature powers? Is she the bad guy? Are there others with powers in Aarendale? We have so many questions! One thing for sure is that the hype around this movie is already extreme. This teaser trailer alone has already become the most viewed animated trailer of all time with 116.4 million views in just twenty-four hours!

 

We guess we will have to wait for more trailers and November to see what is going on, be sure to check back her in the meantime for more information and Frozen 2 fun!

avengers end game

This first trailer for the film is dark and bleak, as you would expect it to be from heroes are now grieving and desperate. Thanos handed them their first true defeat and now they are out for his blood. Iron Man is adrift in space and Cap is rounding up forces for revenge! We love the darker outlook, it makes us wonder just what it will take for our heroes to defeat Thanos and restore the universe to some sort of order. Hawkeye’s return and his somber expression tells us his family did not survive, and there are so many questions we have about how Ant-Man managed to get out of the Quantum Dimension? When we last saw him in the post-credits of Ant-Man and The Wasp he was left stranded there when Janet Van Dyne, Hope Van Dyne (Wasp), and Hank Pym were all wiped out in Thanos’s cosmic-level genocide.

avengers endgameAll we know is that Captain Marvel is expected to join their ranks in this film, and perhaps we will see a few more surprising heroes come to the forefront. We really wish they would have used Netflix’s Marvel heroes, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Daredevil as backup to boost the ranks…Still we are stoked for this film. It’s time for some avenging–one more time! Avengers Assemble!

You be sure to catch all the action April 26, 2018! Happy viewing!
