Go Behind-the-Scenes of The Jungle Book

On Wednesday we shared the first clip of Idris Elba's magnificent tiger, Shere Khan, who is the central antagonist in Jon Favreau's The Jungle BookIn this new featurette, Favreau talks about how, thanks to the huge leap in technology in the past few years, photo real animation has made it possible, and worthwhile, to remake the classic 1976 original Disney film. Bill Murray, who plays the lovable, carefree bear Baloo, discusses his love for Rudyard Kipling's book, and he's joined by Lupita Nyong'o, who plays the wolf, Raksha, Ben Kingsley as the panther Bagheera, Scarlett Johansson as the python Kaa, and the aforementioned Idris Elba as the mighty tiger Shere Khan who all discuss what they find special about the film.

The live-action/photoreal animation really does look spectacular, and it's our guess that The Jungle Book will be a hit when it bows on April 13.
