review

Wow! This has to be the best version of The Jungle Book I have ever seen, including Disney’s original animated movie. I almost cried at least three times because the scenes – I think because they involved animals – were so innocent, moving, touching, endearing. And the excitement at the suspenseful scenes was just as enticing!

Exceptional!
