Disney – The Jungle Book DVD Movie Review (2016) #JungleBook

I received The Jungle Book DVD in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours.

 

The Jungle Book Movie Review (2016)!

 

The Jungle Book movie is a remake of the classic Jungle Book from back in 1967 when I was just a wee 7 year old. It’s available on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. The live-action movie is basically the same yet you will find many differences if you saw the original. 

Mowgli nails it and the animals continued to amaze me. They look so real; their fur, expressions and movements. Even though the movie has more animals than humans, you will find much emotion. (Yes, I did cry because that’s something that I do!)

Although the movie might be a little intense for some young children, ours had no problem with it and it’s one of those movies that we watch time and time again.

I prefer to pick up the Blu-ray, DVD, or watch it on Digital HD because there are so many bonus features on it that you won’t see anywhere else. 

 

 

Bonus features include*:

BLU-RAY & DIGITAL HD:
