The Jungle Book is a 3D CGI animated television series. This series is based on the original book by Rudyard Kipling. Contents. 1 Plot; 2 Characters. Main. Jungle Book Shōnen Mowgli is a Canadian-Japanese anime adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's original collection of stories, The Jungle Book. It aired in , and consists of a total of 52 episodes. The series, a compromise between the original Mowgli stories and the Walt . a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters. The Jungle Book is a American animated musical comedy film produced by Walt Disney .. Between and , the TV series Jungle Cubs told the stories of Baloo, Hahti, Bagheera, Louie, Kaa, and Shere Khan when they were.
Based on Rudyard Kipling 's book of the same name , it is the 19th Disney animated feature film. Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman , it was the last film to be produced by Walt Disney , who died during its production. The plot follows Mowgli , a feral child raised in the Indian jungle by wolves, as his friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear try to convince him to leave the jungle before the evil tiger Shere Khan arrives. The early versions of both the screenplay and the soundtrack followed Kipling's work more closely, with a dramatic, dark, and sinister tone which Disney did not want in his family film, leading to writer Bill Peet and composer Terry Gilkyson being replaced. The Jungle Book was released on October 18, , to positive reception, with acclaim for its soundtrack, featuring five songs by the Sherman Brothers and one by Gilkyson, " The Bare Necessities ". The film initially became Disney's second highest-grossing animated film in the United States and Canada,  and was also successful during its re-releases.
This was her last film before she died. The animators shot footage of Bruce as a guide for the character's performance. Carr's performance impressed Disney enough for him to cast her as the role of the human girl.
In the original book, the vultures are grim and evil characters who feast on the dead. Disney lightened it up by having the vultures bearing a physical and vocal resemblance to The Beatles , including the signature mop-top haircut.
It was also planned to have the members of the band to both voice the characters and sing their song, " That's What Friends Are For ". However, the Beatles member John Lennon 's refusal to work on animated films in that period led to the idea being discarded. However, Walt decided to cut the character for feeling that the film had already much action with the monkeys and vultures.
Animation on The Jungle Book commenced on May 2, While many of the later Disney feature films had animators being responsible for single characters, in The Jungle Book the animators were in charge of whole sequences, since many have characters interacting with one another.
The animation was done by xerography , with character design, led by Ken Anderson , employing rough, artistic edges in contrast to the round animals seen in productions such as Dumbo. Anderson also decided to make Shere Khan resemble his voice actor, George Sanders.
Following one of Reitherman's trademarks of reusing animation of his previous films, the wolf cubs are based on dogs from Dalmatians. Baloo was also based on footage of bears, even incorporating the animal's penchant for scratching.
Since Kaa has no limbs, its design received big expressive eyes, and parts of Kaa's body did the action that normally would be done with hands. The instrumental music was written by George Bruns and orchestrated by Walter Sheets. Two of the cues were reused from previous Disney films.
The scene where Mowgli wakes up after escaping King Louie used one of Bruns' themes for Sleeping Beauty ; and the scene where Bagheera gives a eulogy to Baloo when he mistakenly thinks the bear was killed by Shere Khan used Paul J. Smith 's organ score from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The score features eight original songs: Longtime Disney collaborator Gilkyson was the first songwriter to bring several complete songs which followed the book closely but Walt Disney felt that his efforts were too dark.
The only piece of Gilkyson's work which survived to the final film was his upbeat tune " The Bare Necessities ", which was liked by the rest of the film crew. The Sherman Brothers were then brought in to do a complete rewrite. Disney said the "nice, mysterious, heavy stuff" from both works was not what he aimed for, instead going for a "lightness, a Disney touch".
The Jungle Book was released in October ,  just 10 months after Walt's death. The Jungle Book was re-released theatrically in North America three times, , , and , and also in Europe throughout the s. The film's total lifetime gross in the U. The Jungle Book is Germany's biggest film of all time in terms of admissions with As of , The Jungle Book held the record for the best-selling home video release in the United Kingdom, ahead of Titanic which sold 4.
It was reissued on video in as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection for the film's 30th anniversary. The Jungle Book received positive reviews upon release, undoubtedly influenced by a nostalgic reaction to the death of Walt Disney. Using some lovely exotic pastel backgrounds and a nice clutch of tunes, the picture unfolds like an intelligent comic-strip fairy tale". Retrospective reviews were also positive, with the film's animation, characters and music receiving much praise throughout the years.
The site's critical consensus reads, "With expressive animation, fun characters, and catchy songs, The Jungle Book endures as a crowd-pleasing Disney classic. The film is recognized by American Film Institute in this list:. In , Disneyland Records released the album More Jungle Book , an unofficial sequel also written by screenwriter Larry Simmons, which continued the story of the film, and included Phil Harris and Louis Prima voicing their film roles.
However, the project never materialized. Elements of The Jungle Book were recycled in the later Disney feature film Robin Hood due to that film's limited budget, such as Baloo being inspiration for Little John who not only was a bear, but also voiced by Phil Harris.
Many characters appear in the —91 animated series TaleSpin. The film, released in , differs even more from the book than its animated counterpart, but was still a box-office success. In , Disney released a direct to video film entitled The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story.
There are two video games based on the film: A version for the Game Boy Advance was later released in Birth by Sleep , although areas of the world are accessible via hacking codes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Jungle Book Theatrical release poster.

The Telegraph. Bagheera voiced by Sam Gold - A black panther.
He is Mowgli's best friend. Unlike his counterpart in the Disney film, Bagheera is not as wise or strict as in the book. Baloo voiced by Jimmy Hibbert - A brown bear. In the series, he is bipedal, wears glasses and he is Mowgli's mentor. Baloo likes to tell stories of the jungle. Kaa voiced by Joseph J. Terry - An Indian rock python. Like in the book, he is sort of friends with Mowgli, Bagheera and Baloo, yet moody and feared.
Daruka voiced by Aaron Albertus - The adoptive father of Mowgli. Although Mowgli usually lives with Baloo and Bagheera, he visits Daruka's family sometimes. Raksha - The adoptive mother of Mowgli. Lali - The daughter of Daruka and Raksha.
Bala - The son of Daruka and Raksha. Peet refused and left the project in , along with his year-old job at Disney. Certain elements that Peet created, such as King Louie, and Mowgli leaving the jungle on falling in love with a village girl remained. The Beatles were asked to voice the Vultures: The Vultures were originally supposed to be voiced by the Beatles. The Vultures in the book were rather evil, but were given a cooler outlook in the Disney movie.
They even bear some similarity to the Fab Four with their Liverpool voices and mop-top haircuts. However, scheduling issues arose and John Lennon was also against working in an animated film. This led to the Vulture Song being re-written as a barbershop quartet, which was sung by J. Mowgli is pronounced wrong in the movie: Kipling had explained the pronunciations of the various names in a guide he wrote.
Mowgli was supposed to be pronounced as 'Mowglee' accent on the 'Mow,' which rhymes with 'cow' and not 'Moe-glee', as Disney used. Baloo's endearing personality can be credited to Phil Harris: Hollywood actor, singer and songwriter Phil Harris had already retired when Walt Disney met him at a party and decided to give him Baloo's voice. On the first day of recording, Harris found Baloo's written tone too boring and wooden and asked permission to improvise.
The result was the happy-go-lucky Baloo we saw and heard on the screen. Disney liked the changes Harris made so much, that he rewrote the lines to suit the improvisations.
