This Extended IMAX Trailer for The Jungle Book is Exciting

We've met Bill Murray's carefree bear Baloo, Lupita Nyong'o's maternal wolf Raksha, and Idris Elba's mighty tiger Shere Khan in two plus weeks of The Jungle Book teasers, trailers and featurettes. Now, Walt Disney Pictures has unveiled an extended IMAX trailer, bringing all of these incredible beasts together in the longest look yet at director Jon Favreau's live-action and photoreal animated remake of the 1967 classic. This trailer is the best example of why now was the time to remake, or "re-imagine," a beloved classic, as the blend of live-action and animation is as seamless, and stunning, as it's ever been. 

The Jungle Book opens in theatres April 15.
