Mowgli’s search for home takes the spotlight in this new imagining of Kipling’s classic tale. 

In this living storybook, Mowgli struggles to fit in with the wolves, the monkeys, and even the humans on his journey to discover where he belongs. Along the way he must contend with the mesmerizing Kaa and the terrifying Sheer Khan, but with the help of his friends Baloo and Bagheera, Mowgli’s search ends happily. 

See The Jungle Book with the whole family!
