Fantasy adventure directed by Andy Serkis. The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli (Rohan Chand) raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India. As he learns the often-harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a panther named Bagheera (Christian Bale) and a bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis), Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own, except by 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.
Bagheera: [to Mowgli] I’d only heard stories about the jungle. I lived in a king’s palace in a cage just like this. I bit and I scratched and I spent my entire life fighting, until one day, I just stopped, and I gained their trust. Gain their trust, little brother.
Bagheera: [to Mowgli] The jungle is no longer safe for you. You must stay in the village. You will be alright, little brother.
Bagheera: When I found you all those seasons ago I thought I could teach you how to belong, but I was wrong, Mowgli.
Shere Khan: [to Mowgli] My, my, how you’ve grown.
Akela: When you were a cub, I looked you in the eyes and I saw no fear. I believed that one day you would bring peace to the jungle. But you have become a man now, Mowgli.
Mowgli: I’m not a man. But neither am I a wolf.
Kaa: I think we can all agree, Mowgli, that you are something the jungle has never seen before.
