'Jungle Book' Actor & Character Portraits Revealed!

Lupita Nyong’o, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, and Giancarlo Esposito pose with their onscreen Jungle Book characters in these new portraits from the upcoming film!

“She is the protector, the eternal mother,” Lupita said of her character Raksha, a mother wolf. “The word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own.”

Idris portrays the tiger Shere Khan. “Shere Khan reigns with fear,” Idris said. “He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”

Check out the film, in theaters on April 15, 2016.
