Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is the brand new Netflix original movie directed by Andy Serkis (who also has the voice of Baloo in the movie).
The movie was released on Netflix in December 2018, and it is one of the highest expected Netflix original movies ever. The fact that it is a Netflix original also means that it will come directly to
The name Andy Serkis might not say a lot to you, but this is a guy who played a part in Black Panther (the second most popular movie of all in 2018). He also played in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and so many more hot movies. And now he is taking part as a direction, but also as the character giving the fantastic, deep, voice to Baloo in the movie.
The animals do speak in Mowgli
I have some friends who can’t stand movies in which the animals speak. Well, it would be hard to create a movie like this without giving voices to the characters, so I don’t really care about that. But, when you start listening to the voices, it is still amazing. The simple fact that you listen to the fantastic voices of Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, and also Cate Blanchett is amazing. I enjoyed every moment listening to the sort of fine British English that left the mouth of the animals throughout the entire movie.

This could easily have been a successful movie in the cinema
Watching this movie on Netflix makes me wonder where the world is heading. This could easily have been a giant hit in cinemas all across the world, and it would for sure be on the list of the 50 highest grossing movies in 2018. Instead, we get to see it on Netflix straight away. That is a giant step and a big chance.
The images of the movie are stunning, and all in all, I would say that this might be one of the best and most stunning Netflix original movies ever made. I had a great time watching it, and even though it didn’t become a big favorite, I still recognize a great movie when I see one, and this was it!
