Video: Disney Movie Trailers

One of Disney's beloved classics, The Jungle Book is getting a live-action/CGI-hybrid remake and the trailer is finally here! We're so excited to see the whole film but for now we'll make do with this chilling trailer, which features Scarlett Johansson's sinister snake character Kaa.

If you think it's going to be a walk in the park jungle like it was in the original Disney animation, think again. As soon as the trailer starts, we learn that Mowgli is alone and helpless, not to mention tiny, in the lush Indian jungle.

Directed by Jon Favreau, this Jungle Book adaptation will have Idris Elba (Shere Khan), Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), Christopher Walken (King Louie), Bill Murray (Baloo) and Lupita Nyong'o (Rakcha) confirmed to voice the characters in the film. Ten-year old newcomer Neel Sethi will be the only real person to appear in the film, playing Mowgli.

Mark your calendars for 15 April 2016 when the film is slated for release in the US. Stay tuned for when we'll get it here!
