The Jungle Book – Director Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Elf, Chef) offers us a delightful retelling of a Disney classic. The new real-life remake of the beloved orphan boy raised in the Jungle by a bear, a panther, and wolves, hits shelves today.
Based off Rudyard Kipling’s classic story, The Jungle Book, is brought to life like never before in this classic retelling. Introducing a first time actor, Neel Sethi playing Mowgli, the film follows a orphan boy who is raised by wolves but is forced to venture out when a tiger named Shere Khan threatens the boy. Along the way, Mogwli befriends a hilarious bear, voiced by Bill Murray, and runs into a fair amount of danger, other magnificent animals, and a whole lot of heart.
The Blu-Ray quality is superb as usual for a Disney film. Despite the high amount of CG creations, the film looks great in HD. The video is also supported by an DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack which is fantastic in its own details.
The films extras include some making of featurettes along with behind the scenes for King Louie’s temple and the usual audio commentary.
This family film is worth a pick up as another chapter to Disney’s live-action foray.
Star Wars Rebels: The Complete Season 2 – As we all patiently wait for Rogue One to hit theaters later this year, we’re treated to a new complete season of Star Wars Rebels.
Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, a time where the empire continues to gain power. The series continues to follow a young smuggler Ezra, under the guidance of a faithful Jedi, as they begin to form the early rebel alliance.
This season was exceptionally interesting as we got to see more Darth Vader in this series. Those that have followed Clone Wars were treated with the epic encounter of Ahsoka fighting Vader this season.
What’s interesting is that, Star Wars Rebels takes place around the same time and worlds as Rogue One. In that, although the show is all animated, there are enough nods and homages to Star Wars canon that make it interesting for all ages.
Special features include a discussion on each disc about the behind the scenes process of the series, along with themes, story arcs, and other clips from conventions. There are also notable featurettes that spell out the connection of the series to the Star Wars universe, in addition to a breakdown of the epic final battle between Vader and Ahsoka.
If you haven’t watched season 1, don’t worry – should be pretty easy to pick up this season without it. The stories feel more mature this time around, and this is a must have for any Star Wars fan – or simply for anyone that needs to be held over before Rogue One hits theaters.
