I don’t know why Disney keeps remaking The Jungle Book, but at least the current version is a visual dreadnought a lot like a hard-to-forget theme park ride. It’s fun and for the family, albeit some of the animals this time are genuine monsters. King Louie the villainous ape is huge, Kaa is the most stupendous snake you’ve ever seen, and even Shere Khan is not your average-looking ferocious tiger. These are CGI creations for one wickedly scary jungle.
Directed by Jon Favreau.
