The Jungle Book
A charming version of the classic tale
sky Disney 8.00pm - 9.50pm
Disney’s live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s stories makes for a lovely mix of thrills and fun. It takes a moment to adjust to the talking CGI creatures interacting with impish Neel Sethi’s Mowgli, but the starry cast soon have us under their spell. Idris Elba’s tiger Shere Khan and Christopher Walken’s giant ape King Louie are among the terrifying threats the man-cub encounters, while Bill Murray’s laid-back bear, Baloo, brightens proceedings.
