This isn’t your children’s Jungle Book.
This morning, Warner Bros. unveiled the hotly anticipated first trailer for Mowgli, its long-in-the-works take on the Rudyard Kipling classic.
As promised by director Andy Serkis, this trailer teases a much darker, scarier take on the story, soaking its setting in deep shadow and leaning into the grim realities of living in a jungle. In other words, expect fewer “Bare Necessities.”
