"An Absolute Delight From Beginning to End" - Clay Smith, Access Hollywood
From Disney's wildly popular The Jungle Book, comes a thrilling all-new animated feature film. The jungle is jumping again as Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and the rest of your favourite characters return in the fun-filled, musical adventure, The Jungle Book 2. "It's a work of such charm and imagination it should enchant children of all ages." (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times).
Mowgli (Haley Joel Osment) has been living in the village among the humans. His new life includes his little stepbrother, Ranjan, and his best friend Shanti, but the man-cub still has that jungle rhythm in his heart, and he misses his old buddy Baloo (John Goodman). When Mowgli wanders back to the wild for some swingin' fun, he soon finds Baloo isn't the only one waiting for him - the man-eating tiger Shere Khan is lurking in the shadows and planning his revenge. If he is to defeat his nemesis, Mowgli will need the help of both his old friends and his new family.
With fresh new renditions of "Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You" and a host of original toe-tappin' tunes paired with classic Disney animation, The Jungle Book 2 is sure to delight the entire family.
