Jon Favreau's adaptation of The Jungle Book hits theaters this Friday. Joey's already seen it (he loved it), and I was blown away by some early footage a little while back. One thing I wasn't blown away by, though, was the original 1967 Disney animated movie. I went back and rewatched it a few weeks ago to refresh myself for the new film, and it has to be one of the most boring films to ever come out of the studio's animation department.
The people at Screen Junkies agree, and as you can see in their latest Honest Trailer, they lay into this one pretty hard.
Before you catch another live-action remake of a Disney classic, get ready for the classic animated film, featuring the song you know and love and....not much else.
