AceShowbiz - "The Jungle Book" debuts a clip that gives a better understanding of Shere Khan's distaste towards human. The jungle beast voiced by Idris Elba confronts a pack of wolves lead by Akela (Giancarlo Esposito) about a new addition to their group.
"I can't help but notice there's this strange odor today. What is it?" the tiger says. "I almost, almost think it was some kind of man-cub." As Neel Sethi's Mowgli cowers behind his wolf family, Akela defiantly replies, "Mowgli belongs to my pack, Shere Khan."
"When was it we came to adopt man into the jungle? Does my face not remind you of what a grown man can do?" the tiger shows the scars that blinded one of his eyes. He continues, "Shift your hunting ground for a few years, and everyone forgets how it all works. Well, let me remind you how it all works. The man-cub becomes man ... and man is forbidden!"
