Warner Bros. has released the first Mowgli trailer. Touting a closer adaptation of Ruyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book than the Disney version, Andy Serkis’ upcoming film shows Mowgli (Rohan Chand) as a feral child torn between his upbringing in the jungle and the human world he has never known.
Rohan Chand (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Bad Words) plays Mowgli, and he’s joined by Christian Bale as Bagheera the panther, Cate Blanchett as Kaa the snake, Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan the tiger, Naomie Harris as Nisha the female wolf, and Serkis himself as Baloo the bear. Matthew Rhys, Freida Pinto, Peter Mullan, Jack Reynor, Eddie Marsan, and Tom Hollander round out the rest of the cast.
Mowgli arrives in theaters on October 19, 2018.
