The CGI footage for “Mowgli” features genuinely threatening beasts. As there is the malicious tiger Shere Khan that’s voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, who declares, “My, my, how you’ve grown.” on 21 May 2018, the comedy-free trailer launches with Mowgli imprisoned in a wooden cage.

Here we see that he’s told by his friend Bagheera, “I looked you in the eye and saw no fear when you were a cub.” As it’s featured a winning Bill Murray as Baloo the Bear belting out “The Bare Necessities”, there’s none of the light comic tones of “The Jungle Book”.
