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.
Due December 7th (ahead of a brief theatrical run), the Rohan Chand led live-action flick will explore Mowgli’s backstory and introduce more human characters into the famed narrative; one which sees a young boy raised by animals in the Indian jungle.
