Check Out Jon Favreau's 'Jungle Book' Behind the Scenes Photos
On Monday, we got a look at the first piece of concept art and the title treatment for The Jungle Book after Disney unveiled it over the weekend. Production is underway on the adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic book, and director Jon Favreau has been posting some cool photos from behind the scenes, both in the sound booth for recording cast members like Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray and Christopher Walken, and on the set with Mowgli (played by newcomer Neel Sethi, the only actor who will actually be seen on screen). Can't wait to see what the visual effects are like to bring the animals to life. Look below!
Here's some photos from production of The Jungle Book from Jon Favreau's Instagram:
The Jungle Book is directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens, Elf, Zathura, Made) and written by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li), based on Rudyard Kipling's classic book of the same name. The film follows a young boy named Mowgli, a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Christopher Walken, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray voice the animal characters in the adaptation Disney will release on October 9th, 2015. Cool?

Much more excited for this film than Jungle Book: Origins

Is it just me or does Scarlett Johansson look like Benedict Cumberbatch in that picture?

Awesome. After Iron Man and Chef, I'm on board with anything Favreau does. This might be great.

You clearly have never seen Elf & Made.

Actually, I have - and I kind of like Elf. Plus, if one or two bad movies keeps you from being interested in a filmmaker's future work, sounds like you wouldn't have much to look forward to. Because almost nobody has a filmography that's 100% perfect. I like to focus on the best work a filmmaker has done, and hope their future work will be of similar quality. That's why I said I am on board to see it and that it "might" be great.

No, I like him as a filmmaker.

Much as I like Scarlet, I'm not very fond of Kaa being voiced by a chick when he was clearly a dude.

Walken looks like he as aged ten years. I guess lighting is indeed important.
