Live action is a recent trend in Disney’s remake of classic animated films like Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015). The remake of The Jungle Book this time is accompanied by an immense green forest painted with magnificent palm trees with a gorgeous animated film, it is an impressive visual feast, with all The shoot was made in Los Angeles with the help of CGI.
But there is a more beautiful beauty than the beauty of the forest, which is the true beauty of being human, the true meaning of being. The orphaned Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is found by Bagheera (Ben Kingsley). Bagheera sent the boy to the rearing wolves, Raksha (Lupita Nyong’o) and Akela (Giancarlo Esposito), who had told Mowgli the law of the jungle, not to manipulate food and try to train. The boy became a “wolf”, simple, to survive in the forest must have a flock. But Mowgli’s presence became a major threat to the lone Shiger Khan (Idris Elba). The film’s main axis of action is when Shere Khan wants to destroy the last germ of mankind, because they possess the ultimate weapon that is “red flower”. The flame is just the first symbol of enlightenment, and at the same time the destroyer of life, which is why the orangutan king Louie (Christopher Walken) wants to own it. Red flower, wisdom, devil’s death desire and burning passion. The power to take over everything will be in the hands of those who own the flames, but Louie probably does not know that there is a greater power than the flame, the wisdom and strength of the body. This is the most impressed character in The Jungle Book, aside from Ben Kingsley’s Bagheera, after all, he is still far from power, since there is nothing more distinctive. For the blindness of the savagery, by the moment they perceive themselves as the rulers of the world, it is also near their death.
On the runway of Shere Khan, Mogli encounters the giant python Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), who recalls Mowgli’s childhood memories, eliciting the pain and suppressing Mowgli’s fear of swallowing. Get the boy, luckily there was the bear Baloo (Bill Murray) rescued. Hypnosis of the giant python is shown by Johansson’s excellent voice performance, and once again, she’s hotly dug out with her voice acting. after her lonely movie. While Bill Murray, with the merriment hidden behind the lines, Baloo’s goal was to store as much honey as he could for hibernation, but when Mowgli appeared, he felt a need for friendship. be attached. Friendship comes from a different species. That is the path that led him along with Bagheera to rescue Mowgli from the orangutan king Louie. The sense of humor in the outer form, in contrast to the seriousness of inner thought, is the point of interest in this character. Baloo does not have many friends, no power, no interest in “red flower”, just being warmed up through the day and getting what is needed close to him is important. Around Baloo are songs, dozens of honey, and hibernation await. What Baloo was looking for was not there, in this green forest. What Baloo needs is just peace. But that way of life, sometimes can not exist in the forest, but that helps Baloo bright, fresh and never let himself be depressed about the herd. That is life. Mowgli appears as a warning sign for the accident that Baloo is about to encounter.
Jon Favreau and his colleagues have kept the viewer lurking in the green jungle following Mowgli’s discovery. The boy is being taught to become a wolf house member, according to Green Forest Law. But the rare moment of the conflict between the choice between humans and the forest, when the black newspaper Bagheraa asked the boy to the village has “red flowers”, people live. There, Baghera would protect Mowgli from Shere Khan. But, life revolves around the personal relationship of the individual and the boy community, and perfection there. If Mowgli was in that village, would he be protected by the fire? Obviously, we are united not only because of the same kind, but because of our memories and our love. Bagheraa wanted Mowgli to be safe, but he forgot, he could only be safe by having him and good friends with him.
As for me, the human is just a universal concept, it does not represent any divine power, nor can it be a counterbalance in the meaningless distinction between “man” and “animal”. People are just a community, race, ethnicity, religion or not, so finding a village is not a good idea for Mowgli, but through that, the viewer will see. Once again, the boy just returned to the place where there was friendship and celebration. That was Mowgli’s decision, not human decision.
Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book is a new level of Disney, with darker colors, more violent passages and more intrusive nature, which is a reality that every child will command. When they grow up, or let adults recollect when they get older. Man, or animals, no species on any species, only the body is over all to take control of life.
