Written by Vera Morris and adapted from the Mowgli stories of Rudyard Kipling, Jungle Book is the incredible tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves.  With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle.  

Some of the jungle boy’s adventures are gripping, like the time he encounters the hooded cobra who guards the treasure vault in the Deserted City.  Others, like the coconut-tossing monkeys who take him prisoner, are hysterical.  But the jungle is also dangerous, for it is the home of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger who has vowed to destroy Mowgli.  With his fawning jackal follower, Shere Khan plots to take control of the jungle.  Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late.

This faithful adaptation will enchant all audiences and have everyone cheering when Mowgli declares,
"I am Mowgli, Keeper of the Law and Guardian of the Jungle!"

Jungle Book is co-directed by Josh Gross and Sharon Buchanan. The assistant director is Lauren David.
