Favreau, Marks, and producer Brigham Taylor developed the film's story as a balance between Disney's animated adaptation and Kipling's original works, borrowing elements from both into the film. Principal photography commenced in , with filming taking place entirely in Los Angeles.
The film required extensive use of computer-generated imagery to portray the animals and settings. The film received praise for its visual effects, vocal performances, direction, musical score, and its faithfulness to the original animated film. Mowgli is a "man-cub" raised by the Indian wolf Raksha and her pack, led by Akela , in an Indian jungle ever since he was brought to them as an infant by the black panther Bagheera.
Bagheera trains Mowgli to learn the ways of the wolves, but the boy faces certain challenges and falls behind his wolf siblings, while Akela objects to him using human "tricks", like building tools, instead of learning the ways of the pack. One day, during the dry season , the jungle animals gather to drink the water that remains as part of a truce during a drought that enables the jungle's wildlife to drink without fear of their predators.
The truce is disrupted when a fire-scarred bengal tiger named Shere Khan arrives, detecting Mowgli's scent in the crowd. Consumed by a vendetta against humans for scarring him with fire , he threatens to kill Mowgli at the end of the drought. After the drought ends, the wolves debate whether or not they should keep Mowgli. Mowgli decides to leave the jungle for the safety of his pack. Bagheera volunteers to guide him to the nearby man-village. En route, Shere Khan ambushes them, but Mowgli manages to escape amidst a water buffalo stampede.

Later, Mowgli meets an enormous reticulated python named Kaa , who hypnotizes him. While under her influence, Mowgli sees a vision of his father being killed by Shere Khan while protecting him. Kaa attempts to devour Mowgli, but she is attacked by a himalayan brown bear named Baloo who rescues the unconscious Mowgli. Mowgli later awakens and retrieves some difficult-to-access honey for Baloo as repayment, with the two bonding in the process.
Mowgli agrees to stay with Baloo until the winter season arrives. Meanwhile, upon learning that Mowgli has left the jungle, Shere Khan kills Akela and threatens the pack to lure Mowgli out. Bagheera eventually finds Mowgli and Baloo and is shocked that Mowgli has not joined the humans as he had agreed, but Baloo calms him down and persuades both of them to sleep on it. During the night, Mowgli finds a herd of Indian elephants gathered around a ditch and uses vines to save their baby.
Although Baloo and Bagheera are impressed, Baloo realizes that he cannot guarantee Mowgli's safety after learning that he is being hunted by Shere Khan. Baloo agrees to push Mowgli away to get him to continue onward to the man village. Mowgli is kidnapped by a gang of monkeys known as the " Bandar-log ", who present him to their leader, a deranged giant ape named King Louie.
Assuming that all humans can make "the red flower" fire , King Louie offers Mowgli protection from Shere Khan in exchange for it. Baloo distracts King Louie while Bagheera tries to sneak Mowgli out, but their ruse is uncovered. King Louie's rampage eventually causes his temple to collapse on top of him. He steals a lit torch from the man village and heads back to the jungle, accidentally starting a wildfire in the process.
He confronts Shere Khan, who claims that Mowgli has made himself the enemy of the jungle by causing the wildfire.
Seeing the wolves' fear of him, Mowgli throws the torch into a river. Baloo, Bagheera, and the wolf pack hold off Shere Khan, giving Mowgli enough time to flee into the burning jungle. He lures Shere Khan up a dead tree and onto a branch, which breaks under the tiger's weight, and Shere Khan falls into the fire to his death. Mowgli then directs the elephants to divert the river and put out the fire. In the aftermath, Raksha becomes the new leader of the wolf pack. Mowgli decides to utilize his equipment and tricks for his own use, having found his true home and calling with his wolf family, Baloo, and Bagheera.
On July 9, , Walt Disney Pictures announced that a live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling 's short story collection The Jungle Book was in development, with Justin Marks set to write the script.
He also stressed the importance of nature and realized how things have shifted during Kipling's time and now, "In Kipling's time, nature was something to be overcome. Now nature is something to be protected". Pixar Animation Studios assisted in the development of the story, as well as providing suggestions for the film's end credits sequence.
Principal photography took place entirely on sound stages at L.
Center Studios  in downtown Los Angeles. Favreau researched earlier films featuring anthropomorphic animals, including Walt Disney 's animated features, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi , as well as modern films such as Babe and adopted certain techniques from those films into The Jungle Book.
Jim Henson's Creature Shop was brought in to provide animal puppet figures for Sethi to act against, although none appear in the finished film. So we took some of the distinctive Walken facial features—iconic lines, wrinkles and folds—and integrated them into the animated character". When mixing the soundtrack in Dolby Atmos , as Favreau said, "we isolated instruments when we could. And in the sound mix, we created a Fantasound mix. If you see the film in Atmos, you will feel that there are instruments that move around the theater".
The musical score for The Jungle Book was composed and conducted by frequent Favreau collaborator John Debney,  mostly drawing from George Bruns ' original music. It has an elegance and majesty to it. While Richard M.
Sherman , who originally co-wrote songs for the film with his brother Robert , was originally reported to be writing new songs for the remake,  Favreau decided not to make the film a musical. Still, he and Debney incorporated several songs from the animated film. John is featured in the end credits. Walt Disney Records released the film's soundtrack on April 15, All music is composed by John Debney except where noted.
The film was originally scheduled for October 9, , but the film's release date was later postponed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures to April 15, It was released on April 8 in 15 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Russia, Malaysia, and most notably in India a week ahead of its U.
A 3D Blu-ray was said to be coming by the end of the year. The film became a huge financial success and a sleeper hit. It became one of the few surprise hits and one of the highest-grossing films of the year, alongside Finding Dory , The Secret Life of Pets , and Zootopia , centered around talking animals to dominate the year-end chart.
The film was released in approximately 70 countries. The reason behind the divided release pattern was because Disney wanted to get some space before Captain America: Civil War releases in early May, as well as availing school holidays and avoiding local competitors.
Albeit falling just below expectations, it nevertheless emerged as a huge financial success and becoming the fourth-biggest Disney release there. Although the opening figure was considered mediocre, Deadline Hollywood noted that Japan is a market that can see big multiples.
The film garnered critical acclaim from film critics and audiences. The site's critical consensus reads, "As lovely to behold as it is engrossing to watch, The Jungle Book is the rare remake that actually improves upon its predecessors - all while setting a new standard for CGI".
Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Exceptionally beautiful to behold and bolstered by a stellar vocal cast, this umpteenth film rendition of Rudyard Kipling's tales of young Mowgli's adventures amongst the creatures of the Indian jungle proves entirely engaging, even if it's ultimately lacking in subtext and thematic heft". He wrote that the film was "spectacular, exciting, funny and fun" and that it "handsomely revives the spirit of Disney's original film".
He particularly praised Murray's performance and the visual effects, deeming it "simply astonishing".
He, however, felt the two songs were rather unnecessary and distracting, and believed the film to be a little too frightening for children. He labelled it "a beautifully rendered, visually arresting take on Rudyard Kipling's oft-filmed tales" but found the musical numbers to be trivial, saying that without the musical numbers, the film might have been a more exhilarating streamlined adventure.
We understand and appreciate his point-of-view, even though carrying it out would mean the death of Mowgli". The film also had its share of criticism with most reviewers criticizing the inconsistent tone of the film and the director's indecision to stick to one vision. Mac of Slant Magazine wrote, "Jon Favreau draws heavily on his film's animated predecessor for plot, characterizations, songs, and set pieces, but doesn't know how to fit these familiar elements into his own coherent vision".
You admire The Jungle Book, but you can't lose yourself in it". Following the film's financial and critical success, the studio has begun working on a sequel. Jon Favreau is confirmed to return as director, while screenwriter Justin Marks will also return for the film. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
