The lush and lively world of the Indian jungle comes alive with brilliantly restored picture and sound in the eagerly anticipated 40th Anniversary two-disc Platinum Edition DVD of the Disney classic The Jungle Book, swinging onto Disney DVD for the first time ever on 5th November 2007.

The perfect combination of classic songs and unforgettable characters, The Jungle Book is the last Disney film on which Walt Disney himself worked, although his tradition of magical storytelling continues today. Available for a limited time only, the digitally re-mastered DVD features some of the most memorable songs in film including the Sherman Brothers' jazzy jungle rhythm of I Wan'na Be Like You and the Oscar® nominated The Bare Necessities.

Journey even further into the jungle of fun with an entire disc devoted to all-new bonus features including the making of The Jungle Book, never-before heard deleted songs and an exciting selection of games including Baloo's Virtual Swingin' Jungle Cruise. Kids will love meeting the long lost character, Rocky the Rhino, while big kids will love Mowgli's Return to the Jungle, in which Bruce Reitherman, the voice of Mowgli and son of director Wolfgang Reitherman, shares his memories of making the film.

The Jungle Book is also available as the ultimate double-pack with The Jungle Book 2 - the perfect stocking filler this Christmas. A premium packaged deluxe double-pack containing the two-disc DVD and a book is the ideal gift for the true collector. The adventure-filled journey follows the ups and downs of the man-cub Mowgli as he makes his way back to the human village with wise panther Bagheera to escape from ruthless tiger Shere Khan. Along the way, he meets unforgettable friends and foes including mad King Louie of the Apes, the hypnotic snake Kaa and the loveable, happy-go-lucky bear Baloo, who teaches Mowgli "The Bare Necessities" of life and the true meaning of friendship.

Full of classic Disney adventure, exotic settings and some of the most celebrated characters and songs in Disney history, the toe-tapping tale is a must-have for the whole family when The Jungle Book debuts on Special Edition Disney DVD this November.

Inspired by Rudyard Kipling's Mowgli Story, The Jungle Book is a story of Mowgli, a boy who has been raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. When the wolves hear that the fierce tiger, Shere Kahn, is nearby, they decide to send Mowgli to a local "man tribe" to seek safety. Feeling very much at home in the jungle, Mowgli runs off where he meets Baloo the Bear. On his way to the village, Mowgli meets many animal characters including a crazy orang-utan and a hypnotic snake.
