Blending live action and performance capture, the story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli 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, played by Earache’s extraordinary Andy Serkis – and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins…

Directed by Andy Serkis – and featuring Earache Kid Louis Ashbourne Serkis as Bhoot – “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” is in UK Cinemas from 27th Nov and streaming on Netflix from 7th Dec.
