I hate to break it to you, but I was not exactly ecstatic to hear about the live-action remake of The Jungle Book. I just honestly don’t see the point of making a movie with people if it almost exclusively consists of animals. They are all animated and I don’t even think they look that great or like real animals … also, was Baloo always a brown bear? And Scarlett Johansson as Kaa? Not exactly what I had in mind. However, I have to give it to them, they really got a great cast voicing the movie with Idris Elba, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito and Lupita Nyong’o being just some of the names.
What do you guys think? Do you think it was necessary to make this a live-action movie? I think I prefer my more innocent childhood vision of the whole story.
