Classification: PG (for some sequences of scary action and peril)
Storyline: Mowgli is a boy who was raised by the Indian wolves Raksha and Akela. When the fearsome Bengal tiger Shere Khan threatens his life, Mowgli leaves his jungle home. Guided by Bagheera the black panther and Baloo the bear, he sets out on a journey of self-discovery. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who do not exactly have his best interests at heart-including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, an orangutan-resembling Gigantopithecus who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly “red flower” (fire).
