The Jungle Book is a 1967 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions and released on October 18, 1967. The film contains a number of classic songs, including "The Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You". Mowgli (Bruce Reitherman) is found in a basket as a baby in the deep jungles of Madhya Pradesh, India by Bagheera (Sebastian Cabot), the black panther. Phil Harris voiced Baloo, a sloth bear who leads a carefree life and believes in letting the good things in life come by themselves. Sebastian Cabot voiced Bagheera, a serious black panther (melanistic leopard) who is determined to take Mowgli back to the village and disapproves of Baloo's carefree approach to life. George Sanders voiced Shere Khan the Bengal tiger and the film's main antagonist, who wants to catch and eat Mowgli. Sterling Holloway voiced Kaa, a Indian python and the film's secondary antagonist, who, like Shere Khan, is determined to catch and eat Mowgli. After finishing The Sword in the Stone, writer Bill Peet suggested Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book as the next film to Walt Disney.
The Jungle Book also marks the last animated film from the company to have Disney's personal touches, before his death on December 15, 1966.
Many familiar voices inspired the animators in their creation of the characters and helped them shape their personalities. While many of the later Disney feature films had animators being responsible for single characters, in The Jungle Book the animators were in charge of whole sequences, since many have characters interacting with one another.
And if you're thinking that Serkis directing the second unit on The Hobbit doesn't necessarily mean he can take on a big studio film like this as the primary director, it was the motion-capture actor who was responsible for the impressive barrel action sequence on the river in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I have been reading your comments for days one negative after negative after negative and that's fine and dandy every person has there opinion and you may just be a common troll looking to stir up trouble and cause attention upon yourself, either way I'm not here to bash your opinion or anything I'm just simply stating that Andy Serkis has great experience on and off the camera so all evidence really points to him having great potential as a Director I would of preferred another movie for his first film but I'm sure he will bring this story justice and bring the animals to life.
The 19th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, the film is noted for being along with The Aristocats (1970) the last film project to be approved by Walt Disney himself, as he died in late 1966, before the film was released.
In its initial release, the popularity was comparable to that of The Lion King or Frozen, making it a great influence for some of today's biggest names in animation (such as Andreas Deja and Brad Bird). They spend the night on a large tree, where they encounter Kaa (Sterling Holloway), a python who hypnotizes Mowgli and tries to eat him. Before long, Mowgli is caught by a gang of monkeys and taken to their leader, King Louie (Louis Prima) the orangutan, who makes a deal with Mowgli that if he tells him the secret of making fire like a human, then he will make it so he can stay in the jungle ("I Wanna Be Like You").
Pat O'Malley, Digby Wolfe, Lord Tim Hudson and Chad Stuart), who closely resemble The Beatles, and they say they'll be his friend. King Louie is an ape who wants to be a human, and offers to let Mowgli stay in the jungle (by bribing him with bananas) if Mowgli shows him the secret of "Man's Red Flower" (fire), though why he wants it is unknown. For this reason the Wolf Council votes to send Mowgli away. Bill Lee provided his singing voice. It was Felton's last film role, with her dying one day before the death of Walt Disney, during the film's production.
Clemmons wanted to start in media res, with some flashbacks afterwards, but then Disney said to focus on doing the storyline more straight - "Let's do the meat of the picture.
This use of familiar voices for key characters was a rarity in Disney's past films. The staff was shocked to hear that a wise cracking comedian, Phil Harris was going to be in a Kipling film. Disney lightened it up by having the vultures bearing a physical and vocal resemblance to The Beatles, including the signature mop-top haircuts.

It was a success, earning $13 million in just its domestic release, mostly due to the popularity of its musical numbers. But that's just my all around personal opinion I hope you have a good one and please feel free to comment onward if you so desire.
This is also the first animated feature released after Walt Disney's death The film was inspired by the stories about the feral child Mowgli from the book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling.
She raises him along with her own cubs and Mowgli soon becomes well acquainted with jungle life. Ten years later, Mowgli visits the wolves and gets his face licked eagerly when he arrives. However, since he was not raised by humans, Mowgli doesn't know how to make fire. Bagheera and Baloo arrive at the palace, unseen and try to plan a way to rescue Mowgli, but the catchy beat of the song distracts Baloo and he wanders off dancing. Peet decided to follow the dramatic, dark, and sinister tone of Kipling's book and wrote an early treatment with little to no supervision, as he had done in One Hundred and One Dalmatians and The Sword in the Stone, along with character designs as well as the idea for the song "The Bare Necessities". It was also planned to have the members of the band to both voice the characters and sing their song, "That's What Friends are For". Following one of Reitherman's trademarks of reusing animation of his previous films, the wolf cubs are based on dogs from 101 Dalmatians. Now THR reports it will be Lord of the Rings and Rise of the Planet of the Apes supporting actor Andy Serkis who will direct the film. One night, when the wolf pack learns that Shere Khan (George Sanders), a man-eating Bengal tiger, has returned to the jungle, they realize that Mowgli must be taken to the "man village" to protect him and those around him. The boy soon meets up with the fun-loving bear Baloo (Phil Harris), who shows Mowgli the fun of having a care-free life and promises not to take him to the man village.
Soon, however, he appears dressed in banana skins and coconut shells posing as a female orangutan which fools the King. Shere Khan appears shortly after and challenges Mowgli to a fight, but Baloo rushes to the rescue. The film made its VHS home video debut in Mexico on October 31, 1987, twenty years after its original release.
Though Serkis was supposed to make his directorial debut with an adaptation of Animal Farm, it sounds like The Jungle Book will fill that role, following his work as a second unit director on The Hobbit.
In fact, Disney just cast Idris Elba as the tiger villain Shere Khan, so they're still ahead on this one.
While we don't need two adaptations of The Jungle Book at the same time, they each sound interesting in their own way. But soon, Baloo's disguise is revealed and there begins a mad chase between the monkeys and Baloo and Bagheera over Mowgli. Baloo is knocked unconscious and Mowgli ties a flaming branch onto Shere Khan's tail in order to get rid of the ruthless tiger. Since the novel is very episodic, with Mowgli going back and forth from the jungle to the Man-Village, Peet made the story much more straightforward; felt that Mowgli returning to the Man-Village should be the ending for the film. Although much of Bill Peet's work was discarded, the personalities of the characters remained in the final film. In earlier drafts of the scene the vultures had a near-sighted Rhinoceros friend named Rocky, who was to be voiced by Frank Fontaine, however Walt decided to cut the character for feeling that the film had already much action with the monkeys and vultures.
Since Kaa has no limbs, its design received big expressive eyes, and parts of Kaa's body did the action that normally would be done with hands. The monkeys' dance during "I Wanna Be Like You" was partially inspired by a performance Louis Prima did with his band at Disney's soundstage to convince Walt Disney to cast him.
Am just seeing puffs of smoke coming from WB HQ, what a brilliant idea *Exhales* *Spaced Out*.

The film grossed over $73 million in the United States in its first release, and as much again from three re-releases.
The King accidentally knocks down a pillar and holds up the temple the best he can until he struggles when Baloo begins to tickle him frantically under the arms. Baloo then wakes up and he and Bagheera take Mowgli to the edge of a man-village, but Mowgli is still hesitant to go in. This was because Disney felt that the story should be kept simple, and the characters should drive the story.
The Jungle Book was released in the United States on VHS in 1991 as part of the Walt Disney Classics product line.
The monkeys manage to stop Baloo's tickling, but end up bouncing the king onto the other pillar instead, causing the temple to collapse in rumble. Mowgli is rescued from King Louie by Bagheera and Baloo.
His mind soon changes when a young girl from the village comes down by the riverside to fetch water. Louie was a less comical character, enslaving Mowgli trying to get the boy to teach him to make fire.
Disney took an active role in the story meetings, acting out each role and helping to explore the emotions of the characters, help create gags and develop emotional sequences. Clemmons would write a rough script with an outline for most sequences. This was her last film before she died. David Bailey was originally cast as Mowgli, but his voice changed during production, leading Bailey to not fit the "young innocence of Mowgli's character" which the producers were aiming at anymore.
The American version was subsequently re-released in 1997 as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection for the film's 30th anniversary; this transfer had washed-out colors.
After noticing the boy, she "accidentally" drops her water pot, and Mowgli retrieves it for her and follows her into the man village. The orangutan would also show a plot point borrowed from The Second Jungle Book, gold and jewels under his ruins - after Mowgli got to the man village, a poacher would drag the boy back to the ruins in search for the treasure.However, disappointed by the reception of The Sword in the Stone, Disney was determined to be more involved with in the story than he had been in the past two films that were written by Peet, with his nephew Roy E. The story artists then discussed how to fill the scenes, including the comedic gags to employ. The script also tried to incorporate how the voice actors molded their characters and interacted with each other.
As morning arrives, Baloo explains to Mowgli that the Man Village is best for him, but Mowgli accuses him for breaking his promise and runs away in the deepest part of the jungle.
After Mowgli chooses to stay in the man village, Baloo and Bagheera decide to head home, never to see Mowgli again. The animators shot footage of Bruce as a guide for the character's performance. Child actress Darlene Carr was going around singing in the studio when composers The Sherman Brothers asked her to record a demo of Shanti's song "My Own Home".
Bagheera (after Baloo explains to him) then finds the Elephant Patrol and tells Hathi of Mowgli running away with Shere Khan himself overhearing. The film was released once again as a 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD on October 2, 2007 to commemorate its 40th anniversary.
Later, Kaa hypnotizes Mowgli into a deep and peaceful sleep, and tries to eat him (after tricking him that Mowgli can trust him), but thanks to the intervention of Shere Khan, Mowgli escapes. This is the first Disney release titled "Platinum Edition" in the UK instead of "Special Edition".
On February 11 a petition was made to The Walt Disney Company to restore the original aspect ratio of the film to the Diamond Edition release.
