The story follows Mowgli's childhood in the jungles of India, cared for by a pack of wolves. Unlike the sing-alongs we're used to, this version shows more of the realities of living in the presence of an angry Bengal tiger.

The film will have a limited release on November 29th and then will head to Netflix December 7, 2018.
