You’ve noticed recently that Disney seems to be quite obsessed with turning animated classics into live-action movies. In recent months, we’ve received word that Tim Burton is directing Dumbo and Reese Witherspoon is starring in a Tinkerbell movie. All of this seems to be a direct result of the amazing success of Disney’s live-action Cinderella, which far exceeded the expectations of the studio.
The next one hitting the theaters is Disney’s Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau. If you follow Disney Studio’s Instagram account, you can get a sneak peak of the trailer that’s due to be released on Monday. Remember, that it was widely reported that the trailer stole the show at the D23 fan expo a month ago. As you will see, the images are simply breathtaking but we don’t see any of the animal characters. I guess we will have to wait for Monday. Jungle Book is scheduled to hit theaters in April of 2016.
