Directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Chef) and produced by Favreau and Brigham Taylor (executive producer of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Tomorrowland), The Jungle Book is a live-action epic adventure based on Rudyard Kipling's timeless stories, inspired by Disney's classic 1967 animated film and centered on Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a man-cub who's been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.

The film's musical score, composed by Emmy® winner and Oscar, BAFTA and Annie Award-nominee John Debney (Elf, Iron Man 2), features a classic orchestral sound accented by ethnic instruments and pays homage to the original film by highlighting snippets of the classic songs we all know and love.
