We were invited by Disney to attend a Jungle Book screening but all opinions are my own.
I remember watching Jungle Book as a child and singing the bare necessities in Portuguese! Such fun memories!
When I heard that Disney was making a new movie about it, I became so excited to watch the movie version of the iconic animated version!
I had the privilege of participating as a Best Buy panelist in a Twitter party hosted by Disney to promote the movie where the director, Jon Favreau answered questions about the movie! I was so excited when he answered one of my most important questions:
For me the movie is a family friendly masterpiece! The scenes are so realistic that it’s hard to believe that it was done inside a 12 story building, inside the studio!
The animals, the jungles, it’s like being immersed in a new universe, so real, you can almost smell and feel it! Coming from Brazil, I felt as if I was right in the jungle!
The story becomes so much more powerful when Mowgli’s actor interacts with live animals, showing the emotions and drama, not seen in my opinion, in the animated movie version!
Needless to say I cried half way through the movie, but I won’t spoil the surprise! Here is a sneak peek:
Here is the summary: The man-cub Mowgli flees the jungle after a threat from the tiger Shere Khan. Guided by Bagheera, the black panther and the bear Baloo, Mowgli embarks on a journey of self-discovery, though he also meets creatures who don’t have his best interests at heart!
Cast overview, first billed only:
Neel Sethi … Mowgli
Bill Murray … Baloo (voice)
Ben Kingsley … Bagheera (voice)
Idris Elba … Shere Khan (voice)
Lupita Nyong’o … Raksha (voice)

My favorite scene, Mowgli and Baloo singing in the river! No spoilers, you need to watch it! Bill Murray is priceless! The Red Flower metaphor is breathtaking and brings additional beauty to an amazing story!
Bring your kids, your whole family to watch this amazing movie! We certainly loved it!
Jungle Book opens in theaters TODAY! As usual, give as a Trendy Shout!
Mogli, o menino lobo
Eu fui convidada pela Walt Disney Motion Pictures para assistir ao pre-lancamento do filme, mas as opinioes são minhas.
Eu tive o prazer de participar numa festa no Twitter com o director Jov Favreau e tive a opportunidade de perguntar a respeito do relacionamento de Mogli com Baloo:
O filme Mogli, o menino lobo representa uma obra de arte para toda a familia!
Cenários que me lembram a Amazonia, animais tão reais que voce vai se perguntar como fizeram algo tão perfeito.
O filme foi produzido num estudio em um edificio fechado, mas o espectador tem a sensação de estar viajando numa floresta!
Eu adorei o filme e recomendo para toda a familia!
Aqui tem um trailer, com artistas maravilhosos que fizeram a dublagem:
Mogli estara nos cinemas no Brasil em 14 de abril!
Voce não vai querer perder a oportunidade de ver este filme! Fantástico para toda a familia!
Me fala se gostou? Me manda um comentário super Trendy!
