If the 2016 live action 3D adventure movie "The Jungle Book" is not enough, wait until you witness a yet another take of the beloved children storybook novel based on the works of Rudyard Kipling. The upcoming "Mowgli" film tells us the whole back story of Mowgli and how he got into the jungle, but this time with a darker twist and said to be so faithful from the original story.

About "Mowgli"

The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

"Mowgli" is the second directorial job of Andy Serkis, whose works include directing family drama, "Breathe" starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, and some of this century's well-marked characters such as King Kong, Caesar, and Gollum. The new "Jungle Book" mythology is quite fascinating to watch in its first official movie trailer below.

"Mowgli" stars Rohan Chand as the titular, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Freida Pinto, and Andy Serkis himself (as another character) to name a few. The movie is produced by Steve Kloves, who wrote seven of the blockbuster “Harry Potter” films; Jonathan Cavendish (“Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” performance capture producer on “Godzilla”); and David Barron (the “Harry Potter” films), with Nikki Penny serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Kloves’ daughter, Callie Kloves, based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling.

 "Mowgli" is set to be shown coming this October 18, 2018.
