Netflix has released the first full-length trailer for Andy Serkis’ upcoming movie ‘Mowgli: Legend Of The Jungle’, which comes to the streaming service this December.

Acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis reinvents Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend. Mowgli (Rohan Chand) has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilized world of man. Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs.

Christian Bale (Bagheera), Cate Blanchett (Kaa), Benedict Cumberbatch (Shere Khan), Andy Serkis (Baloo) and Naomie Harris (Nisha) lead an all-star cast of performance capture/CGI animals. Newcomer Rohan Chand along with Freida Pinto and ‘The American’s Matthew Rhys play the live-action cast in this visually spectacular and emotionally moving adventure.

Originally, the film was going to have a straight cinema release, but back in July, Netflix acquired the worldwide rights to the film from Warner Bros for a global release on the streaming service. The film has been in production for some time, and at one point, looked like it might be going head-to-head with Jon Favreau’s 2016 CGI reworking of ‘The Jungle Book’ for Disney.

‘Mowgli: Legend Of The Jungle’ will still get a limited theatrical release from Thursday, 29th November 2018, however, you will be able to stream it globally on Netflix from Friday, 7th December 2018.
