These Actors Look Stunning With Their Jungle Book Animal Counterparts

Mowgli holds a special place in my heart as his stories were the ones which I grew up listening. So as soon as the Jungle Book trailer was launched, I couldn’t control my nostalgic happiness. Baloo, Bagheera and Sher Khan coming alive with the new age CGI is kind of a spectacle to watch. So while we are still eagerly waiting for the movie to release, Disney has released images of the larger than life animals of movie along with the actors who are behind their voices.

Idris Elba as Sher Khan

“Shere Khan reigns with fear. He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”

Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha

“The word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own.”

Scarlett Johansson as Kaa

jungle-book-03

“Kaa seduces and entraps Mowgli with her storytelling. She’s the mirror into Mowgli’s past. The way she moves is very alluring, almost coquettish.”

Christopher Walken as King Louie

“King Louie is huge — 12 feet tall. But he’s as charming as he is intimidating when he wants to be.”

Giancarlo Esposito as Akela

“Akela is a fierce patriarch of the wolf pack. He believes the strength of the pack lies in what each and every wolf offers. He’s a great leader, a wise teacher.”

Sir Ben Kingsley as Bagheera

jungle-book-05

“Bagheera is Mowgli’s adoptive parent. His role in Mowgli’s life is to educate, to protect and to guide. My Bagheera was military — he’s probably a colonel. He is instantly recognizable by the way he talks, how he acts and what his ethical code is.”

The Jungle Book releases on April 15th worldwide
