Andy Serkis’ ‘Jungle Book: Origins’ Changes Title to ‘Mowgli’

Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book: Origins has made a change and will now be titled Mowgli.

The film follows the titular character, who is raised by wolves as he follows the rules of the jungle and keeps company with a flighty but lovable bear named Baloo and a wary, protective panther named Bagheera.

With a darker tone than Disney’s 2016 The Jungle Book, along with Serkis as Baloo, the cast includes Christian Bale as Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Naomie Harris as Nisha, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys as John Lockwood, Eddie Marsan as Vihan, Tom Hollander as Tabaqui and Rohan Chand as Mowgli.

Alfonso Cuaron worked with Serkis, offering notes on the movie, which will blend live action and motion capture.

Before he welcomes audiences to the jungle in Mowgli October 19, 2018, Serkis will return to the MCU as Ulyssess Klaue in Black Panther when it claws its way into theaters Feb. 16.
