The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book is a 1967 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions and released on October 18, 1967. The 19th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, the film is noted for being along with The Aristocats (1970) the last film project to be approved by Walt Disney himself, as he died in late 1966, before the film was released.
Generally happy-go-lucky, but has a difficult time dealing with rules, and even more so, change. His goal throughout the film is to somehow find his place in the jungle, in hopes of remaining there, despite the looming threat of Shere Khan.
Bagheera is a wise figure. Level headed and intelligent, the panther is amongst the most down-to-earth residents of the jungle. He is a selfless and caring individual, rescuing the orphaned Mowgli, and going out of his way to ensure his safety from that moment forward.
Shere Khan acts as the physical embodiment of power and composure. With a dignified manner of carrying himself, and a strong sense of pride and elegance, the ruthless tiger is viewed as the uncorroborated ruler of the jungles of India; he is well aware of this reputation, as he takes advantage of it sadistically. Most, if not all residents of the jungle, are known to fear Shere Khan.

For me, some did not hold so well now that I'm quite a bit older, e.g. Snow White. Some DO still work and work well. Wizard of Oz, still good. And Jungle Book here, still good. I'm not sure that the Blu-ray shows enough technical superiority in this case to justify the price vs DVD, so I was tempted to knock a star off. May have given 4.5 it was possible. However, a couple timeless classics are still superb. Bare Necessities and I Wanna Be Like You still make my toes tap.
It is unlikely kids of today will ever appreciate how important film like this are to movie history, but in any case this should always be a good family film.
Once the slipcover is removed the blu-ray underneath is the standard copy of The jungle book Blu-ray, with a handful of special features. the one disc included in this item is where the item really lets me down. The disc is a standard boring, blue, 'Not For Rental' disc with no art work what so ever. It just seems lazy.
This item was priced at £15 upon release which isn't too bad of a price for this item. just be aware that if you do pick these up that you are not guaranteed artwork on the disc, and with the price steadily on the rise due to its limited edition its getting less worth its price.
I've found it difficult to get some children to sit down and watch this as they're into their computer animated movies nowadays and this has a different feel that some children don't particularly like. It's all about the fast action from the get go. Disney has definitely changed. But its a good one to watch with the family and to them dancing along. (I still dance along to Baloo and King Louie's dance moves in that famous scene - albeit 20 years later).
This edition has little extras such as going around Animal Kingdom and looking at the real life animals that are shown in the movie. A great educational extra for little ones (and myself). It's a must-buy in my opinion
The Fifties hit a range of highs and lows - original and memorable concepts were marred by over-production and stylisation. The Jungle Book was a reminder that simpler can be better, and achieved such with some quite infectious music (arguably one of the greatest Disney soundtrack's to date), relatable characters and soft artwork. It's just a winning combination.
Like any true classic Disney film, the story is poignant for both children and adults alike, much like Pixar's modern outings. There is a coming-of-age for Mowgli the 'Man Cub', but the ever loveable bear Balloo teaches some life lessons with his own range of songs. Tiger Shear Kahn is your typical bully, but the age and wisdom of Bagheria only fazes the other characters.
This new Blu-ray outing for The Jungle Book is startling. It features the same restoration as was seen on the Platinum Edition DVD, but the high definition video brings a whole new sense of accomplishment to the artwork. Quite frankly, I never believed the movie could look this good, but the video is so clear that you can actually see the texture of the card that the backgrounds were painted on. And those watercolours... Absolutely gorgeous. With a nice thin layer of grain on top, The Jungle Book now looks fresh from the camera in 1967.
I was also pleased to hear the lossless soundtrack, as again, everything just pops out of the television. The bass has really benefited this treatment as you get a great sense of rhythm during temple escape scene, and of course, the many incidents of head-plonking and destruction!
All the extra features from the previous DVD have been carried over, and some new content has also been produced. Not a single complaint here - many other Disney Diamond/Platinum Editions have been so short on extra features that it's almost insulting for the price.
In short, this is the definitive release of The Jungle Book. It is a classic family romp that deserves a place in any home, and it only seems to get better with age.
