One of my favorite Disney movies of all time is The Jungle Book. My sister and I loved singing the songs, acting like monkeys and growling like Shere-Khan. I have passed my excitement for this movie down to my kids and they enjoy it as much as I did. I could not believe it when I found Disney had made Jungle Book 2 back in 2003. I knew this was going to be as loved as the first and I was not disappointed. I could barely contain my joy when I found this hilarious and sweet sequel was coming to DVD and Blu-ray this month.
Experience the wonder of this timeless tale as you reunite with your favorite characters and meet new friends. Disney’s beloved movie classic continues in this new digital master of The Jungle Book 2 – on Blu-ray for the first time, and wilder than ever in breathtaking high definition! Now that Mowgli’s living in the “man-village,” he cherishes his new best friend and little brother, but he still has that jungle rhythm in his heart. He misses hanging out with happy-go-lucky Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. Yearning for freedom, Mowgli runs off into the jungle – and encounters his enemy Shere Khan! This time, he’ll need both his new human family and his old jungle friends to help save the day. Packed with humor, suspense and fun, this thrilling musical adventure will be on of the “Bare Necessities” of your Disney movie collection!
