The Jungle Book has always been a rather dark story, which became really clear in the live action film from 2016, where Disney's jolly songs weren't present to lighten up the mood or gloss over all the death and destruction. Now, Andy Serkis (yes, THE Andy Serkis) has decided to take it a step further and make the story even more depressing, judging by the new official trailer for his film, which you can see below.
The film comes to a cinema near you on October 19, is directed by Andy Serkis and stars Cate Blanchett as Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan, Andy Serkis as Baloo, and Christian Bale as Bagheera.
