Disney announced this morning that Oscar winner Ben Kingsley will voice the black panther Bagheera in its new adaptation of The Jungle Book.

He joins Idris Elba as the tiger Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as the python Kaa and Lupita Nyong’o as the wolf mother Rakcha in director Jon Favreau’s film, which blends live-action and animation.

Previously adapted by Disney in the 1967 animated classic, Rudyard Kipling’s tale follows an orphaned Indian boy who’s raised by wolves and befriended by Bagheera and the bear Baloo, who try to convince him to leave the jungle before Shere Khan arrives.

Written by Justin Marks, The Jungle Books arrives in 3D on Oct. 9, 2015.
