I remember very little about Disney’s The Jungle Book, but I know I saw it as a kid, and I know I really enjoyed it. That’s why I can’t wait for the The Jungle Book Diamond Edition which comes out on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on February 11!
I still sing “Bare Necessities” to myself all the time, despite odd looks from my kids. As much as I loved Disney’s Tarzan (and that one rocked big time!), the Jungle Book is just a bit less intense, sweeter and cuter.
Really, is there a better animal pal out there than Baloo?
Meet the most unforgettable characters and embark on a thrilling adventure with Mowgli as he journeys deep into the jungle and learns “The Bare Necessities” of life from happy-go-lucky Baloo the bear. Meet Bagheera, the wise old panther, and crazy King Louie, the orangutan. But watch out for the cunning tiger Shere Khan and Kaa, the ssssneakiest snake in the jungle!
