Mowgli: Trailer & BTS Is Out, Andy Serkis Explains Film's Darker Approach

Elephant-Jungle-ook-Mowgli

Straying away from the traditional song and dance fairytale, the new film, Mowgli, takes a turn for the darker side with the trailer leaving a rather daunting chill running down your spine.

A new film based on Rudyard Kipling's classic Jungle Book features some of the brightest actors in Hollywood but it comes with a far darker storyline than we've seen before.

Andy Serkis is perhaps best known for his unbelievable motion-capture work in the Lord Of The Rings and rebooted Planet Of The Apes film series than anything else in his entire career.

Serkis revealed that Bale's performance as Bagheera added a phenomenal warmth and real love to the character's bond with Mowgli. "It's not so much a child's fairy tale. this is definitely drawn from Kipling and has a much darker approach to the story-telling".

We're not going to come to a satisfactory resolution to this issue in a post about the film's trailer, so let's move on.

Rohan Chand plays the role of Mowgli. While this certainly seems to indicate a stricter adherence to the source material, it isn't the loyalty to the book that's most impressive about this trailer-it's the shockingly flawless marriage between the voices of the cast with the corresponding beautifully rendered CGI animals they're portraying. He's told by his friend Bagheera, voiced by Christian Bale, "When you were a cub, I looked you in the eye and saw no fear".

The trailer also shows off attractive landscapes (in a CGI-meets-live action world) as Mowgli ventures through the jungle with his animal friends - and foes, including tiger Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) who, in one scene, towers over the young boy. Mowgli will return to the big screen on October 19. "There's no singing or dancing by the animals that's for sure", Serkis said.

Directed by Andy Serkis, it mixes live action with motion capture computer-generated characters. Cate Blanchett voices the snake Kaa. We'll just have to wait and see.

Who hasn't heard about Mowgli, the boy who was raised in a jungle.

Mowgli will release on 19 Oct 2018 and stars Rohan Chand in the lead.
