Net­flix nabs Jun­gle Book re­make

The Province - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Orig­i­nally ti­tled just Mowgli, Mowgli: Leg­end of the Jun­gle is a live-ac­tion/mo­tion-cap­ture ver­sion of The Jun­gle Book orig­i­nally set for a 2016 re­lease, which would have put it in di­rect com­pe­ti­tion with Dis­ney’s ver­sion, re­leased in April of that year. But be­tween want­ing to cre­ate space be­tween The Jun­gle Book and need­ing ex­tra time in post-pro­duc­tion, the date kept get­ting pushed, un­til Net­flix bought the rights last sum­mer and set­tled on a win­ter stream­ing re­lease with a brief the­atri­cal open­ing at the same time.
