Disney’s live-action version of their animated children’s movie The Jungle Book, this version of The Jungle Book was well received and is a great movie to watch on Netflix.

Basically the same story of Mowgli as before, the live-action animals seems clunky at first, but you get used to it as the movie goes on. Most of the animals are voiced by extremely well-known people, so it is definitely one worth watching – especially if you or whoever else is watching loved the original the Jungle Book movie.
