Bill Murray is Baloo in This new The Jungle Book Clip

Bill Murray as a happy-go-lucky bear? Well, of course. This new clip from The Jungle Book features Murray as Baloo, the friendly bear that the man-cub Mowgli (Neel Sethi) meets along his journey through the jungle. We've been publishing a lot of Jungle Book related videos lately, as Disney has been releasing behind-the-scene featurettes and clips featuring characters like Idris Elba's mighty tiger Shere Khan and Lupita Nyong'o's maternal wolf Raksha. A live-action/CGI blended remake of the 1967 Disney classic, The Jungle Book centers on Mowgli's journey through the jungle after Shere Khan makes it clear he's no different from all other men, hence, an enemy. Baloo is one of the many animals that Mowgli meets along the way—and not all of them have his best interests at heart.

In this clip, Baloo isn't all good times and giggles. In fact, for saving Mowgli's life, he wants a little something in return. 

The Jungle Book opens on April 15.
