The Jungle Book - Behind the Scenes

If you've seen Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book already, you know it's a wonderful film set in a lush jungle with lovable characters. Aside from Mowgli, played by youngster Neel Sethi, every other character is a CG animal. And here's the craziest part - the film was shot entirely in downtown Los Angeles. How did they pull this off? Lots and lots of blue screen (and CGI). Disney has released a behind-the-scenes featurette showing some of the special sets and other tricks they used to film this movie - it's impressive to see. In addition, SlashFilm has some photos of the making of The Jungle Book with details like that 224 unique animals were created, and the average render time per frame was 19 hours. The magic of Hollywood. Take a look below.

Here's the behind-the-scenes featurette for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, from Disney's YouTube:

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 released The Jungle Book in theaters April 15th - now playing.
