I’m wary of live action movies with talking animals since Disney’s Dinosaur (2000). I’m pleased that The Jungle Book (Blu-ray release 2016-8-30) is very different, in a good way. The protagonist here is a human boy, raised by talking animals. He is pursued by an evil tiger. The CG scenery and animals look excellent. More importantly, this family movie is reasonably exciting, progresses at a good pace, and not too preachy. I don’t like the songs though, even though they are here for a reason.
