It was revealed at the beginning of the week that throughout this week we’d be given a triptych set of posters for Disney’s upcoming fantasy adventure The Jungle Book. The Jon Favreau film looks to give a live-action telling of both Rudyard Kipling’s original story and the animated classic we all love, and so far, it’s very much succeeding at that. Get a beautiful new look at the film below.
The first trailer debuted some of the most epic visuals we’ve seen in some time. If you didn’t know already, the entire film was shot in a sound stage is Los Angeles. Watch the trailer again with that in mind and see how much more they pop out at you. Other than that, the trailer was definitely just a teaser trailer. The only words spoken were those of Scarlett Johansson’s Kaa, which was nothing short of mesmerizing.
So while we wait for a new trailer that will no doubt showcase more of the story and voice talents of many of the beloved characters, we can gaze into some more of the beauty of the film with the triptych set of posters I spoke about above:
Featuring the biggest characters of the story, this is by far the best use of a triptych poster I’ve seen in recent memory. Each single image easily stands on its own, but they’re definitely at their best when they come together. It captures the complete story, scope, and overall essence of the film. You know it’s a great poster when it’s something you’ll put on your wall.
The Jungle Book swings into theaters on April 15th, 2016. Directed by Jon Favreau starring Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson, and Christopher Walken.
