Oh, Baloo, I wanna stay with you. Walt Disney Studios has unveiled the first teaser poster for Disney's The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau mostly in motion capture, starring Neel Sethi as Mowgli. The movie was made using mostly motion capture, and apparently the CGI work is "next level", according to SlashFilm's Peter Sciretta. Fans and press attending the D23 Expo's presentation on live-action Disney movies today were treated to a look at The Jungle Book, and according to early buzz it's very impressive and nostalgic, earning a standing ovation. For everyone else not there, this poster below is our first look for now.

Here's the first official teaser poster for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book movie, direct from D23/Disney:

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. Disney will release The Jungle Book in theaters on April 15th, 2016.

if the cgi is just as good as life of pi it will be amazing otherwise it will suck! Life of pi did raise the bar very high!

This doesn't use motion capture, the other Jungle Book directed by Andy Serkis will, because Andy Serkis.

Visuals don't make the movie folks. I can't believe that nobody else is a bit concerned that the writer on this (Justin Marks) is known for Street Fighter : The Legend of Chun-Li?!?! RED FLAG! RED FLAG!

Other than Cowboys and Aliens, Favreau does pretty amazing light-hearted, warm, character-centric, fun films. Did you see Chef? I think this film will be fine.

'"Yes,", said Mowgli; "all the jungle fear Bagheera - all except Mowgli."'
