NEW ADDITIONS TO DISNEY'S LIVE-ACTION JUNGLE BOOK CAST


Disney's The Jungle Book, as opposed to Warner Bros' Jungle Book: Originshas just added three new cast members. Bill Murray is set to voice Baloo, Christopher Walken King Louie (this makes perfect sense to me) and Giancarlo Esposito Akela. They join Ben Kingsley as Bagheera in filling out Disney's cast of old geezers for Jon Favreau's film, which also features Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o and, as Mowgli, Neel Sethi. The film is set for release in the US on the 9th of October 2015, and in the UK on the 16th.
