You all know my feelings regarding these live-action remakes that Disney is doing of their animated films: I’m against them in principle, but if a film happens to be good, I’ll admit to it being so. Having said that, there were only 2 planned Disney remakes that didn’t irk me; I actually was somewhat open towards. One of them happened to be the subject of today’s review: The Jungle Book.

Directed by Jon Favreau, I felt that The Jungle Book was a book that had been adapted many times already, so I didn’t feel that this would be a remake of the 1967 animated film, per se. But, that doesn’t stop me from pointing out the differences between that film and this film. Without further ado, let’s take a look at this 2016 adaptation of The Jungle Book!

Making movies based on video games is nothing new. It’s been done in America since “Super Mario Bros.” was released in 1993. Sadly though, that film was not a hit! In 2012, Disney Animation would make a film based on the idea of video games entitled, “Wreck-It Ralph”. Thankfully, this film was a hit!

But this wasn’t Disney’s first time making a film based on video games. Oh no, they’ve done it before. In 2010, for example, they made a live-action adaptation of a popular video game series entitled “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”. So the question is, does this follow the “Wreck-It Ralph” route to greatness or the “Super Mario Bros.” route to badness and forgettability? Well, you’ll just have to wait until the end of the review to find out (*coughs* “Super Mario Bros.” *coughs*).
