4.0 out of 5 stars Has Kid Appeal May 19 2004
This rating is based on my kids' (four and two) perspectives. They love it--especially the four-year-old. To me, however, this film is lacking that "Disney Magic." In fact, it smacks of direct-to-video release material. I can't believe this actually appeared in theaters.
It's interesting that some reviewers comment on the lack of plot. The original JB plot is lacking, as well. Get the boy out of the jungle and to the man-village to escape Shere Khan. That lack of plot in both films, however, magnifies the difference between the two. JB1, interestingly, is the first Disney film where the actors actually played a part in the development of the characters. Phil Harris IS Baloo. Same goes for Louis Prima (King Louie), Sebastian Cabot (Bagheera), George Sanders (Shere Khan) and Sterling Holloway (Kaa).
How can John Goodman, et al, compete? In most instances, they cannot. Goodman was awesome in Monsters, Inc., but here his performance seems lackluster and uninspired. Same goes for most (but not all) of the other characters.
It is interesting to note that Jim Cummings who provides Kaa's voice in JB2 also is the "modern voice" of Pooh. And, that Sterling Holloway who provided Kaa's voice in JB1 was the "original voice" of Pooh. Cummings does a good job as Kaa in JB2.
Overall, there was no way for Disney to satisfy us adults, who grew up on the original JB (and like me who recently shelled out big bucks to get the original on DVD), but it does work on the kids' level. And, that's what matters in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised May 11 2004
The story of Jungle Book 2 is basically a do-over of the original Jungle Book. Mowgli once again finds himself in the jungle having a grand adventure with all of the old characters. The only real difference is that this time he brings along two others from the "man village". But that's okay. The story was good the first time, and because of decent writing and great casting, the story is good a second time also. Re-doing the story was a much better choice than trying to make some wierd interpretation, or just a lazily written sequel.
The casting in this movie is really good, with voices that sound authentic enough that you don't bother comparing them to the original. Doubtless that was a big help to making this a best-ever sequel.
The music in this movie was also very good. Reusing some of the old music, tinkering around with some new mixes, and adding some brand new scores brought together a totally fun soundtrack. The Smashing Pumpkins never before sounded this good.
While not of the same calaber as the original Jungle Book, JB2 comes in a close second and is far better than I really expected of a sequel considering Disney's reputation for stupid, cheap, straight-to-video sequels. There is also an option on the DVD to play just the music scores of the movie, which the children really enjoy. Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised by this sequel and hope that Disney will take this as a new standard for their sequels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Bare Necessity" for your Disney Library! Feb. 16 2004
The movie starts out recapping what happened in the original Jungle Book movie, with a swingin' beat! (My girls, ages 4 & 5, were dancing all the way thru it!)
Mowgli is voiced by Haley Joel Osment, and he does a wonderful job! Mowgli is fed up with the rules of the man-village and longs for his old pal Baloo (voiced very well by John Goodman) and the jungle life. When Baloo strays into the man-village one night looking for Mowgli, Shanti (a girl from the man-village) spies him and screams "wild animal!" The villagers all come to her aid, but spy Shere Khan (voiced by Tony Jay) in the village instead of Baloo. This enables Baloo and Mowgli to slip into the jungle, unseen by anyone, except Shanti. Shanti follows them, seeking to "rescue" Mowgli. This is when the "fun" begins!
The songs are addictive! (and annoying if your 5 yr old sings them for days on end!) I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, as did my kids! We've watched it numerous times and would recommend it to all! It is a delightful story and a joy to watch!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, the kids seem to like it Aug. 28 2003
By Shaz
I try to watch Disney sequels objectively- I enjoyed "Return to Neverland" and "Lion King II" (I only liked the 3rd installment of "Aladdin" because they wisely brought back Robin Williams). But "Jungle Book 2"...eh, not my cup o' tea.
The opening sequence is promising- Mowgli (Haley Joel Osment) is telling his tales from the Jungle in shadow puppet form to his friend Shanti (Mae Whitman, the adorable urchin from "One Fine Day", and "State of Grace"), the young girl who originally lured Mowgli into the Man village in the 1st movie. It is not clear how the people in the village are related, but there is also a young boy named Rajan who idolizes Mowgli and is fascinated with tigers. When Mowgli starts missing his old "Papa Bear" Baloo (John Goodman), the movie cuts to Baloo, who is missing Mowgli and plotting to nab him from the man village. From here, the "2" movie is pretty much like the first, except that Shanti and Rajan are along for the ride. The vultures are also back, but their addition to this movie is pretty much just so they can add Phil Collins name to the starring bill- they add no relevance to the storyline. This movie is fun for the kids, but falls flat for the fans of the original- perhaps we are too biased to accept a retelling of an old tale (because that's what this pretty much is). The original had it all- the late, great Phil Harris as Baloo, better musical numbers, and the legendary Louis Prima as King Louie! That's a tough act to beat. At least Jim Cummings ("Kaa") is a decent replacement for Sterling Holloway (he was the original voice for Winnie-the-Pooh, and died in 1992). The DVD extras try to revive the original movie, but also add a fun interactive game featuring Mowgli.

My 4 year old son loved this movie, I recommend it for everyone. the only problem is that Disney movies are always the priciest.

I do not want to say that this is a bad movie. In fact, my son, who loved the first one, is also captivated by this sequel. Yet, it is a completely different style. Read more
