Netflix have secured a major coup, for Andy Serkis‘ hotly anticipated ‘Mowgli’ movie will be making its debut on the streaming platform next month.

It’s the latest take on Rudyard Kipling’s classic ‘The Jungle Book’ – which Disney brought to the big screen in 1967 and again in 2016.

However, Serkis’ incarnation skew much darker and grittier than past versions and – per its title – will put the spotlight on the main character even more.
