Walt Disney Studios has released the first teaser for The Jungle Book (April 15, 2016), which you can find embedded below.Directed by Jon Favreau, based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

It’s been a few years since it was first officially announced that Disney and Harvey Weinstein announced they were working on a film adaptation of the Artemis Fowl series of young adult novels by author Eoin Colfer. Not much has been heard of the project since, but recent reports (as per Variety for example) have seen Kenneth Branagh attached to direct the film with Conor McPherson in talks to adapt the book for the screen.
Colfer took to YouTube earlier today to express his thoughts on the latest developments, noting that while he is pleased with news that the movie is moving forward, he cautions that the film has been down that development road before.
Earlier today, The Animation Guild Blog, representing the Local 839 IATSE union, provided a list of projects currently in the works at various studios in the Southern California area. Among the list are a few of interest when it comes to Disney television and feature animation.
Among the several already-known projects for Disney Television are two new entries: ‘Unannounced fairy tale’ and ‘Puppy Papers.’ An extensive Google search for the latter provided very little information on the new series, other than it’s being developed by Rough Draft Studios for Disney. All we could find were professional references for storyboard artist Aimee Major Steinberger and animation sheet timer David Lyman.
