“Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle Full Movie”
A forceps delivery for a harsh and personal re-reading. After two years of post-production to fine-tune the special effects and avoid colliding with Jon Favreau’s Disney live-action project , Andy Serkis unveils his Jungle Book . For the occasion, the star of the Lord of the Rings and the new trilogy of The Planet of the Apes is in front of and behind the camera. His Mowgli, the legend of the jungleis now available on Netflix. The SVOD platform also organizes a 3D broadcast in some American and London cinemas. The studio Warner preferred to insure his back and give him his distribution rights, fearing a box office disappointing. The version of the performer hobbit Gollum surprises with its darkness. A thousand leagues away from the carelessness of the Disney cartoon and its joyful story It takes little to be happy.
“I wanted to go back to Kipling’s original stories. The novelist was born in India but did his schooling in an English boarding school where he was very unhappy. When he describes the jungle of his childhood, it is with nostalgia and sadness, “says Figaro Andy Serkis.
“Mowgli is an outsider never in his place”
With this film, the English comedian wanted to “put Mowgli back in the middle of the story”. Besides, the wild child is more in contact with his fellow creatures than in the previous adaptations. And Andy Serkis decrypts: “Mowgli is an outsider never in his place, neither among the animals that adopted him, nor with the humans of the village that borders the jungle.”
Played by the young Rohan Chand, the child is educated with a rough affection by the black panther Bagheera and the Baloo bear. The plantigrade is no longer a bon vivant, but a quasi-military sergeant who teaches rough the laws of the jungle: never to hunt for pleasure, not to attack the cattle of men, etc. To continue to be under the protection of the wolves who collected it, Mowgli must win a sprint race and thwart the claws of the avenging tiger Sher Khan. The beast dreams of establishing his bloody domination. These power struggles evoke the fragility of nature vis-a-vis men, but also colonialism and British imperialism, in the person of the white hunter John Lock-wood (Matthew Rhys). This collector of trophies also has an account to settle with Sher Khan.
The subtext is not easy to grasp for the youngest who may be disarmed by the underlying violence of certain scenes and a hasty end. But their parents will want to plunge into the texts of Kipling to find the bitterness. Andy Serkis, an expert in motion capture, has put his knowledge of the technique into practice. His animals are doubled by the Hollywood gratin: Christian Bale (Bagheera), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sher Khan). The director has kept the role of Baloo.
“I was inspired by the engravings of zoologists of the nineteenth century to give his animals a realistic but also legendary. We also gave them the traits of their interpreters, “he explains. The faces of actors and animals have been melted. Kaa the snake took the prominent cheekbones of Cate Blanchett. “Motion capture is a tremendous tool,” concludes Andy Serkis. This means that in the twenty-first century an actor can embody any character, without limit of appearance and nature.
