When the terrible tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) unleashes his tremendous roar, Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is forced to flee the only home he’s ever known. The young child meets a slithery python and a smooth-talking monkey while being guided by a no-nonsense panther (Ben Kingsley) and a free-spirited bear (Bill Murray). Mowgli learns crucial life lessons along the way as his epic voyage of self-discovery leads to pleasure and adventure.
