Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’ Finds Its Mowgli

Jungle Book

Disney has finally found its Mowgli, announcing that Neel Sethi will star in director Jon Favreau’s live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book.

Favreau chose the 10-year-old New Yorker after a global casting search. Sethi will be the only human to appear in the film. “Casting is the most important element of any film and finding the right kid to play Mowgli was imperative,” the director said in a statement. “Neel has tremendous talent and charisma. There is a lot riding on his little shoulders and I’m confident he can handle it.”

Sethi joins a cast that includes voice actors Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o and Ben Kingsley. The Jungle Book swings into theaters on Oct. 9, 2015.
