The streaming giant Netflix is all set for the release of its upcoming Andy Serkis’ Mowgli: Legend of the jungle on the platform on December 7 worldwide. The trailer of the adventure thriller is out and it promises every pinch of fascination. The expectations for this movie are already touching the seventh sky, as after watching Joh Favreau’s live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s novel on the silver screen, the audiences cannot take anything less than fantastic.
In the trailer, Mowgli can be seen stuck between two worlds. Played by Rohan Chand, he was found by a pack of wolves when he was a baby and as they bring him up as one of their own, Mowgli soon starts to realise the reality of himself.
The boy discovers a village nearby where he meets human beings, who look like him and move like him. Conflicted between the two families, Mowgli crosses the adventurous path of a jungle boy, while trying to keep the jungles safe.
By the end of the trailer, Shere Khan leaves a significant impact on the audiences and while the little boy struggles to find his true identity, the story unfolds its different chapters.
The film stars Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Andy Serkis as Baloo and the coveted part of Shere Khan is being played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The film also stars Matthew Rhys and Frieda Pinto.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, which is slated to stream on Netflix from December 7, will also enjoy a limited theatrical release on November 29.
