The Jungle Book, this year's most highly-anticipated film, hits theatres next week. To celebrate, we've rounded up some of our favourite Jungle Book quotes from the original 1967 movie for you to enjoy!
It's hard to believe that the original Jungle Book film was released nearly fifty years ago. Animation has changed a lot since back in Walt Disney's day – just check out Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and Kaa in this poster!
This classic tale of a young boy raised by wolves has been delighting children (and adults) for decades. Need a plot refresher? Inspired by Rudyard Kipling's novel, The Jungle Book follows 'man-cub' Mowgli as he navigates the jungle with his animal friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. With beautiful imagery and catchy tunes, the original film was a smash hit and even garnered an Oscar nomination.
The new Jungle Book film is not animated, but instead is live-action combined with CGI computer graphics (similar to the movie Avatar) and boasts a vocal cast that includes Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, and Scarlett Johansson. Fans of the original will be happy to hear that Baloo's 'bare necessities' features in the new film – and of course, in our round-up of the best Jungle Book quotes. From sweet thoughts about friendship to a clever philosophy about the important things in life, these Jungle Book quotes will remind you how wonderful the original film was – not to mention how wise Baloo is! Let's hope that the new movie is just as good...
