Get ready for the wildest movie to ever come out of the jungle! THE JUNGLE BOOK: MOWGLI'S STORY is a hilarious, live-action adventure complete with the beloved characters from Rudyard Kipling's timeless tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story includes the death of an animal parent (shown deceased but not being killed), and a boy is stalked throughout the movie by a tiger seeking revenge. Additionally, there are a few other scenes of family separation, danger, and isolation that may scare younger kids. Overall, however, the film is a fairly gentle coming-of-age tale.
