    One of the most popular Disney films ever, THE JUNGLE BOOK is a song-filled celebration of friendship, fun and adventure set in a lush and colourful world. Inspired by Rudyard Kipling`s "Mowgli" stories, Disney`s 19th animated Classic was the last animated feature to bear Walt Disney`s personal touch.

    This jubilant adventure begins when Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves, is urged by his friend Bagheera, a wise old panther, to seek safety in the man-village. Feeling very much at home in the jungle, Mowgli resists and runs off where he meets Baloo the bear, a lovable "jungle bum" with a happy-go-lucky philosophy of life. Together, these new buddies find the journey back to civilsation anything but civilised, encountering a crazy orangutan, a hypnotic snake and the menacing tiger Shere Khan along the way!

    Fully restored to its theatrical brilliance, and featuring jazzy, toe-tapping music including the Oscar-nominated "The Bare Necessities", this enduring Disney Classic will delight your whole family!
