Mowgli trailer: This is the darkest and scariest version of Jungle Book

The first trailer for the upcoming movie Mowgli has been released starring Rohan Chand as the boy abandoned in the jungle in a dark retelling of Rudyard Kipling's famous tale

The movie features Rohan Chand, Matthew Rhys and Freida Pinto as actors along with voices from Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris, Andy Serkis, Tom Hollander, Peter Mullan, Eddie Marsan and Jack Reynor.

The rest of the star studded cast include Christian Bale as Bagheera the panther, Cate Blanchett as Kaa the snake and Benedict Cumberbatch as the villainous tiger, Shere Khan. Sure, he will spend more time with humans but still won't fit in. Playing the role of CGI aided characters has become quite a habit for Serkis, who played Gollum in the Lord of the Rings series and Caesar in the Planet of the Apes series.

Hollywood production giants Warner Bros. has released their first trailer for Mowgli.

During Cinemacon, Serkis gave a brief explanation of his version of the childhood favourite and how it differs from Jon Favreau's 2016 Jungle Book.

It's a much darker retelling of Rudyard Kipling's famous tale than the family-friendly 1967 Disney animated feature The Jungle Book and its 2016 remake
It's a much darker retelling of Rudyard Kipling's famous tale than the family-friendly 1967 Disney animated feature The Jungle Book and its 2016 remake

"It's much closer to the tone of Rudyard Kipling's book and it takes into account the world that Kipling was living in".

Mowgli looks gritty, intense and fucking scary at points and while it still follows the same story arc as its predecessors, there's a new element being added in. And newcomer Rohan Chand is a standout as the titular mancub.

Mowgli releases in Australia on October 18, 2018.

From the very beginning, it's pretty clear that Christian Bale was a ideal casting choice for the black panther Bagheera. Before you accuse Warner Bros of simply just trying to copy Disney's success, Serkis has reportedly been working on this movie for over 4 years already to ensure everything could be shot right and replicated to the detail he wanted. Serkis will be voicing Baloo in Mowgli. He played him so beautifully, I mean there's phenomenal warmth and real love between them (Bagheera and Mowgli), said Serkis. Several scenes especially stand out like the one where a bruised Shere Khan makes an entry or when one of the Bandar-log screams his guts out at the camera.
