The first teaser trailer for "Mowgli" has been released.
Mowgli is the latest live action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's novel, The Jungle Book, and will be a combination of real actors and motion capture animals. The film follows Mowgli (Rohan Chand), who is raised by a pack of wolves as he follows the rules of the jungle.
'In this film we see Mowgli try and assimilate himself into the world of man in the Indian village, ' Serkis said in an interview on British television Monday. But the first trailer of Andy Serkis's version of Rudyard Kipling's fantasy collection will knock you out of your happy place and leave you with a completely different impression.
From the very beginning, it's pretty clear that Christian Bale was a flawless casting choice for the black panther Bagheera.
"It's not so much a child's fairytale, this has a reality to it".
The creepy and slithering Ka python whose voice is being lent by Cate Blanchett whispers to Mowgli, "I think we both can agree Mowgli that you are something the jungle has never seen before".
Mowgli, which stars Rohan Chand in the titular role, also has Freida Pinto and Matthew Rhys in its star-studded cast.
Although the attempt a little risky considering the happy nostalgia attached to the story, Warner Bros' attempt to tell the dark side is welcomed with open arms and fans curious to know more about the story.
Serkis zeroed in on this kind of retelling after creating his wildly popular mo-cap creatures Gollum from Lord of the Rings franchise and Caesar from Planet of the Apes series. Mowgli is NOT a sequel to or a part of 2016 film, The Jungle Book, in any way.
With such power-packed trailer, we can't wait for the movie to hit the silver screen and experience this unique adaptation of the masterpiece. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Cumberbatch).
The comedy-free trailer launches with Mowgli imprisoned in a wooden cage.
Mowgli is scheduled for release on October 19, 2018.
