Let’s all welcome actor Neel Sethi, who plays Mowgli in Disney’s 3D live-animation film “The Jungle Book,” to the Disney family. He’ll soon be on the big screen with photo-realistic animals, but while at Disney’s Animal Kingdom last week, he posed with Mickey Mouse.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has a small section of Rafiki’s Planet Watch dedicated to Zootopia, but nothing so far for it’s life-action recreation of The Jungle Book. With photo-realistic animals and Indian setting you’d think it a perfect fit for the Asia section of the park. I hope they decide to do something more.
