While on a family vacation this past weekend, I received a wonderful invitation and now I am EXCITED to share the news!
Thanks to Walt Disney Studios, I have been invited along with 24 other bloggers to Los Angeles from April 3rd – April 5th to walk the red carpet for THE JUNGLE BOOK premiere. In addition, we will be interviewing Director Jon Favreau and Neel Sethi who plays “Mowgli”!
There will be more details about THE JUNGLE BOOK Premiere plus some surprises coming soon, so be sure to follow along via the hashtag #JungleBookEvent!
Now it just so happens that my kids and I have been gearing up in advance for this film by making a dessert and craft. Are you also looking for some fun ideas? Check out our Animal Cracker Parfait creation as well as the kiddos Homemade Jungle Book inspired by the film!
About The Jungle Book:
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film “The Jungle Book”, this all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves.
But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.
Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).
Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.
The Jungle Book swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016. For more information about the film, check out Disney.com/thejunglebook, also follow along on Facebook at facebook.com/DisneyJungleBook, and Twitter twitter.com/
