I read the book as a kid - there is certainly more story to explore, specifically how Mowgli adjusts to life in the village & how he still feels the jungle calling to him. I liked the book back then, so I'm down to see Favreau continue this story.
It's crazy that Disney's Jungle Book sequel is going into production before Andy Serkis' even... *what?* I read something a few months ago about it. It's still supposed to be getting made I think.

The 2016 version is the best version of The Jungle Book in my opinion. It was absolutely wonderful.
I have a hunch they might skip "The White Man's Burden."
The tonal shift in Kipling's book when Baloo bought his first airplane was revolutionary to the world of litterature and I can't wait to see it come to life on the big screen.
I'm excited. Favs' remake was an unexpectedly wonderful adventure film in its own right. I never really cared much for the old animated film, but this version was really solid. I want more.

Suuuure. Because the first one was such a great representation of the source material.
Can we still have a vulture voiced by Phil Collins?
