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.
