JUNGLE BOOK 2 (Released to Theaters USA 2003)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

 Jungle Book 2—okay animated film—does not have the vibrancy or creativity of the original 1967 rendition of the Jungle Book story. At times, it is slow and a bit boring. The drawn animation, however, is very good and the voicing is great. Listen for John Goodman’s voice as Baloo. This simple story basically rehashes the 1967 movie and has some comedy built in.

 Baloo misses Mowgli and wants to go to the village to see him. Against Bagheera's wishes, Baloo goes, and then has to escape with Mowgli to not be caught by the village residents, and the story is on.
