After rolling my eyes at the announcement that Iron Man director Jon Favreau was remaking The Jungle Book for Disney, I began to take the project seriously after attending an early press event and being super impressed with the quality of the footage I saw that day. I'm legitimately looking forward to seeing how this film turns out now.
Today, the studio released a new featurette that goes behind the scenes of the movie, showing off some footage of the impressive voice cast recording lines in the audio booth. This movie looks like it could be an excellent adaptation, and one that's actually justified because of its innovative use of technology, which is more than a lot of other modern adaptations can say.
The Jungle Book arrives in theaters on April 15th.
