So, these live-action Disney recreations are getting tiresome, I agree, but there is something in me that has been anticipating this ever since it was announced based on the voice-cast alone. Like, Johansson, Nyong'o, Walken, Elba, Murray, Kingsley...like, these are actors with GREAT voices, and so the idea of them using those in this setting seemed so perfect. I've been a little skeptical as to how they were going to spin this into a live-action film with talking animals and not have it look...cheap...and here it is. The action looks sharp, the sets look dynamic, the visuals look remarkable and Scarlett Johansson's silky voice lacing the whole trailer is perfection.
But, yes, the most beautiful note at the end is Baloo whistling The Bare Necessities!
I'm all in for this. I mean, this was kind of perfect, right?
