With Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book hitting cinemas on Friday, we’re already hearing that Disney is planning for a sequel to this latest telling of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale.
The Hollywood Reporter has word that the House of Mouse is already starting to put things together for another Jungle Book movie, with Favreau and writer Justin Marks believed to be in talks to return for a sequel. If, as expected, he does return, Favreau will produce alongside the returning Brigham Taylor.
Favreau’s The Jungle Book is opening on Friday in most markets, and the early reviews are hugely positive. For the film, Neel Sethi plays Mowgli, with the effort a live-action/CGI hybrid that features the vocals of Billy Murray as Baloo, Scarlet Johansson as Kaa, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Christopher Walken as King Louie, and Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha.
Of course, Kipling penned many a Mowgli-centric tale, and so Disney plan to explore these where a Jungle Book sequel is concerned.
