For those who watched the cartoon version, you already know what Mowgli was abandoned as a baby and raised by animals.
Netflix's Mowgli is set to air globally on the 7th of December 2018, so put the date in your calendar now and start rounding up the squad for a wholesome movie night. The cast includes Serkis as Baloo the bear, Benedict Cumberbatch as the tiger Shere Khan, Cate Blanchett as the python Kaa and Christian Bale as the leopard Bagheera. Now, we have a brand-new trailer for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, and while it does look more polished than it did before, it still does look a bit...off.
