Andy Serkis’ long-awaited Jungle Book remake Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle will be available to stream on Netflix beginning December 7.
To highlight the movie’s upcoming arrival, Netflix dropped the final trailer of the darker take on the Disney classic. The trailer is filled with awe-inspiring visual effects work that shows off the new version of Mowgli.
Serkis’ remake of The Jungle Book has been in the works for many years now but ran into some unexpected hurdles when its studio handed the project off to Netflix before its theatrical release. Not to mention Disney released its own live-action remake of The Jungle Book.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle features a star-studded cast that includes Christian Bale (as Bagheera), Cate Blanchett (as Kaa), Peter Mullan (as Akela), Benedict Cumberbatch (as Shere Khan) and Andy Serkis (as Baloo).
