Also, the CGI used in the movie is quite phenomenal and it seems like Netflix is stepping up their game in the market. The trailer is right below and you can have a look at it here:
The name of the movie decided by the makers at Netflix is ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’. According to the previous reports, the release date of the movie was December 7, 2018, but in order to gain the maximum market out there, they’ve decided to change the idea and are now going for November 29, on which they’re giving way to their limited theatrical release in New York, Los Angeles, San Franciso, and London before the release of the movie on the streaming service on the December 7.
We all know that Netflix bought the rights of the film from Warner Bros. and in the trailer, we can see that they are inspired and motivated in order to show one of the most famous characters of all-time in a completely different manner.
The appointment of Andy Serkis, clearly tells us about the approach they’re going for as the director, Serkis talked about the movie while being in Singapore where he revealed to Variety that,
“I wanted to make an emotional version of this story, which has already been told many times, I wanted to explore being an outsider. Being dislodged, being other. It is a hugely contemporary idea that could do with exploration.”
It would’ve been Warner Bros. instead of Netflix but because of too many delays in the project, Warner Bros. thought that handing over the rights of Mowgli to Netflix is going to be a right decision and it was indeed, as the hype is really high and fans who were waiting to see the Mowgli on the big-screen again will now be able to see him sooner than before after the new release date.
Also, there were a lot of talks about the direction of Serkis and in order to clarify things Serkis talked with Deadline and cleared all the acquisitions and claims by stating,
“I’m really excited about Netflix for Mowgli, Now, we avoid comparisons to the other movie and it’s a relief not to have the pressure. I’ve seen the 3D version, and it’s exceptional, a different view from the 2D version, really lush and with great depth, and there will be some kind of theatrical component for that. What excites me most is the forward thinking at Netflix in how to present this, and the message of the movie.”
“They understand this is a darker telling that doesn’t fit it into a four quadrant slot. It’s really not meant for young kids, though I think it’s possible that 10 or above can watch it. It was always meant to be PG-13, and this allows us to go deeper, with darker themes, to be scary and frightening in moments. The violence between animals is not gratuitous, but it’s definitely there. This way of going allows us to get the film out without compromise.”
