Rated PG for animal violence and scary scenes
Genre: Action and disney classic
It is hard to believe that all the backgrounds and animals were all CGI. Everything looks so real and it is so beautiful. It could be a nominee for best special effects next year in the oscars.
It is definitely not for little kids. It does have the elements from the disney version but also from the original book. Although it is pretty dark, it does still have some sense of humor coming from Baloo.
They have a couple songs from the 1967 version (Bare Necessities and I wanna be like you)
I liked a lot of the voice actors and Neel Sethi was pretty good.
I liked it the 2016 version better. Not that the 1967 version was bad, but 2016 had viewers in awe over the special effects which was beautiful.
I wished Kaa's scene was a bit longer.
They could make a sequel, but what would it be about? (I think they confirmed a sequel)
