Another animated classic from the Walt Disney Animation Studios that follows Mowgli, the man-cub raised by wolves, who must leave the jungle to take his place in the man-village. The journey is a dangerous one as the mighty tiger Shere-Khan has sworn to kill the man-cub. Mowgli, accompanied by his loyal friends, Bagheera the panther and Baloo the irresponsible bear, meet an array of friends who help Mowgli escape Shere-Khan. A delightful score and voices by stars such as Phil Harris, George Sanders and Sebastion Cabot make this a “song-filled celebration” that’s been a family favourite for decades.
