It’s pretty incredible that EVERYTHING except the actor playing Mowgli is animated! Bonkers.
With all the rumours that floated around about who’d voice who, I was THRILLED to see that Idris Elba would be voicing Shere Khan. Perfect voice for that role.
The Jungle Book is out April 15th,with
Bill Murray as Baloo
Ben Kingsley as Bagheera
Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha
Christopher Walken as King Louie
Giancarlo Esposito as Akela
Emjay Anthony as Grey Brother
SOLID line up eh?
But who the heck is that kid playing Mowgli? His name is 10 year-old Neel Sethi and this is his first major acting gig. His only other credited role is in a short film called Diwali
