Explore your family's wild side as you venture into The Jungle Book for extraordinary adventures and a heartwarming tale that celebrates the true meaning of friendship.

Amazon.ca

Disney's 1967 animated feature seems even more entertaining now than it did upon first release, with a hall-of-fame vocal performance by Phil Harris as Baloo, the genial bear friend of feral child Mowgli. Based on fiction by Rudyard Kipling, the film goes its own way as Disney animation will, but the strong characters and smart casting (George Sanders as the villainous tiger, Shere Khan) make it one of the studio's stronger feature-length cartoons. Songs include "The Bare Necessities" and "Trust in Me." --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

VIDEO:

Jungle Book arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.75:1 encode. Instead of meticulously touch-up for high definition release, Disney simply scrubbed away all the natural grain, that makes the final product having too much glossy sheen. Maybe Disney is simply presenting a classic movie for a generation of youngsters who are used to artificially clean animation. At least the noise reduction is not as disastrous at that in The Sword in the Stone (my review elsewhere). Here, the sketch lines are still fairly distinct. Colours are nicely saturated, primaries are quite lovely, black levels are deep, and contrast is dialed in beautifully. This being a Diamond Edition, I am slightly disappointed with Disney’s efforts. (3.5/5)

AUDIO:

Disney has upgraded the audio to DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio lossless track. The music and lyrics are crystal clear. Dialogue is crisp and natural. George Burns score and the Sherman Brothers' songs sound better than they ever have, as does the entire experience. The song Bare Necessities, written by Terry Gilkyson and performed by Phil Harris and Bruce Reitherman, was nominated for Best Original Song in 1967, but lost to Talk to The Animals from Doctor Dolittle. (4.5/5)

TRIVIA:

Did you know that the Vultures were originally going to be voiced by The Beatles? The band's manager, Brian Epstein, approached the Disney studios about having The Beatles appear in the film, and Disney had his animators create the Vultures specifically to be voiced by the band. But when Epstein took the idea to the Beatles, John Lennon vetoed the idea, and told Epstein to tell Disney he should hire Elvis Presley instead.

This one of Disney's underrated films, and also the last that he himself supervised on - he died around that time. It is a favorite in my family and it always will.

The film is based on Rudyard Kipling's classic book, and I not one compare with bonified Jungle Book fans (the original book), but I love this film, the animated film version from Russia and the original Jungle Book stories. Also I love movies/stories that are set in Asia, in which the film is set in India.

I love the main-title theme, it sets off the mood of the jungle. I love a scene at the beginning when Bagheera plays stork. You know "deliver" baby Mowgli to the wolf family like the stork. I also love the scene with the monkey whacking Baloo (who thought the monkey was Mowgli) on the nose...that's was funny.

Overall this is a very entertaining film, and a song-filled celebration of friendship, fun and adventure set in a lush and colorful world. Though I am still SHOCKED by the negativity towards it.

"The Jungle Book was released on October 18, 1967 to positive reception, with much acclaim to its soundtrack, featuring five songs by the Sherman Brothers and one by Gilkyson, "The Bare Necessities'.

I watched it in 1967 and it made a great impression upon me... I have never forgotten it and always wanted to get a newer version- it first came out on video which I grabbed up since it is Walt Disney Studio release and sometimes hard to get later after the release. I was surprised that a DVD version was released and in various ways. This particular version is great. Kids today will like it too, along with adults. Despite its age the animation is really very good- largely hand painted instead of computerized.

It is a fun filled animated version of Rudyard Kipling's book.

This movie is old style Disney at it's finest ad it is ALMOST better than the book. I forgot that "MR FRENCH" Sabastian Cabbott made a second Disney contribution to this film I a more adult role but his voice is very much like chicken soup for the soul. The musical numbers remind us that before "A little Mermaid " Disney was bringing the goods to the screen long before the music got so big. The film has lots of messages that are universally friendly-friendships and how they can come about ad how important they can and will be in life. I liked this film because I noticed in Disney fashion of that era that the movie wasn't too busy leaving you lost in a sea of images and noise like some Family films by others

simply put,this animated film is lots of fun.with great catch songs,fun action,and it's funny.the characters are also colourful.the voice talents are great,as well.i can't imagine more appropriate voices for the characters.the whole family can enjoy this gem.unfortunately there are a few different inferior versions of this film out that have capitalized on the Jungle Book name but they don't compare to the Disney version.if you haven't seen it yet,i'd recommend it highly.you can't go wrong,in my opinion.just make sure it's the Disney version and not one of the many other cheap knock off versions.for me,Disney's The Jungle Book is a 5/5
