Synopsis
One of Disney's most treasured animated classics comes to glorious life - stunningly photographed on magnificent locations in India! Based on Rudyard Kipling's beloved short stories, this all-new adventure promises a journey beyond your wildest imagination! Raised by wild animals since childhood, Mowgli is eventually drawn away from the jungle by Kitty, the beautiful daughter of Major Brydon.

Mowgli soon faces a corrupt Captain Boone, who wants both Kitty's hand in marriage and a hand on the mythical treasures of Monkey City, a place only Mowgli can find. Loyal animal friends Bagheera, Baloo, and Grey Brother must help Mowgli survive the untamed peril.
