Parents should know The Jungle Book is a life-like animated remake of the original Disney cartoon film. There is also an element of live-action with the man-cub Mowgli but the majority of the film is life-like animation CGI animation. The realism adds a new layer of intensity for young kids when the animals fight and the forest catches on fire. These realistic animations could be hard for young kids to watch and may scare them. Even the scene with the giant snake Kaa can make adults feel uneasy who have a fear of snakes. After watching some trailers for the film, parents will get a good understanding of what to expect from the life-like animation and make a judgement call if their kids will enjoy it. Overall, The Jungle Book encourages viewers to do the right thing even when it’s tough, standing up to bullies, and teamwork.
