The Jungle Book (1967) is an animated musical adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions. The film is based on Rudyard Kipling’s famous novel of the same name and tells the story of a young boy named Mowgli who is raised by a pack of wolves in the Indian jungle.
The film begins with Bagheera, a wise panther, discovering a baby Mowgli abandoned in the jungle. Bagheera decides to take the boy to a wolf pack, who gladly accepts Mowgli as one of their own. Mowgli grows up alongside the animals and considers them his family.
However, as Mowgli gets older, the jungle becomes more dangerous for him. Shere Khan, a fierce and vengeful tiger, vows to kill the boy as he believes Mowgli is a threat to his authority. Determined to keep Mowgli safe, Bagheera decides it is time for the boy to return to the human village.
Mowgli is reluctant to leave the jungle, but ultimately agrees to go back with Bagheera. Along their journey, they encounter various jungle creatures, both friend and foe. Mowgli befriends Baloo, a fun-loving and carefree bear who teaches him the “Bare Necessities” of life and encourages Mowgli to follow his own path.
However, their friendship is tested when King Louie, a power-hungry orangutan, tempts Mowgli with the promise of staying in the jungle forever if he can learn how to make fire. Mowgli realizes that staying in the jungle without the protection of his animal friends is not the right choice.
In the climax of the film, Shere Khan attacks Mowgli
