Anyone familiar with Richard Adams’ Watership Down can attest to its grim nature, but an upcoming animated miniseries for The BBC and Netflix at least has a bright outlook on its cast. Not only can Star Wars lead John Boyega and several X-Men count themselves among the new voices, so too can Gemma Arterton and more.

Disney has released two new clips from The Jungle Book — one that will make you laugh as you reach for a snack, and another that will make you feel…some things. Let’s just get the emotional part of this out of the way up front so we can end on a more positive note, okay? Unless you feel particularly emotional about food, and in that case, feel free to reverse your viewing order.

Disney’s live-action update of The Jungle Book looks absolutely gorgeous, and if nothing else, the trailers for Jon Favreau’s new adaptation of the beloved classic promises some incredible CGI — perhaps even better than Ang Lee’s Life of Pi. We’ll have to wait until next month to be certain, but until then, Disney has released some pretty cool new photos featuring the voice cast posing alongside their respective CG animal characters.

Disney has released a new TV spot for The Jungle Book, offering a fresh look at Jon Favreau’s live-action / CGI adventure with a little bit of new footage thrown in for good measure. Titled “Live the Legend,” the spot opens with Ben Kingsley’s Bagheera, the panther mentor of young Mowgli, explaining the (bare?) necessity of returning the boy to the jungle.

Disney’s trend of adapting its animated classics into live action blockbusters has resulted in movies both good and bad, but The Jungle Book looks like it could be something special. The first trailer for the film has arrived and it rightfully puts the emphasis on the animals. Sure, young Mowgli is doing all of the running and the jumping, but we really care about the wide variety of creatures forcing him to do that running and jumping in the first place.

‘Self/Less’ Trailer: Ben Kingsley Turns Into Ryan Reynolds, Sci-Fi Chaos Ensues

EDIT

The first Selfless trailer proposes a question that many science fiction movies have asked in the past. If you could have a second chance at life in a new body, would you take it? From John Frankenheimer’s Seconds to James Cameron’s Avatar, this is well-travelled territory for the genre. But in an age where scientists are actually studying how we can transfer our consciousness into computers (by 2045, no less), this kind of sci-fi plot suddenly seems a whole lot creepier.
