Verdict: Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book is a hugely entertaining film with a nod to the 1967 classic, but yet very different in mood and texture. This is The Jungle Book reinvented for 2016 by a director who knows just how to mix the heavy blows with the light touch. It’s a little more reminiscent of the jungle and the book than the 1967 Disney classic, a lot, lot darker, and yet, ultimately as exuberant, with a surprisingly strong and novel message at the heart of it, in a story that already didn’t lack for them.
