Jungle Book The Movie

Last night my three boys had a movie night with The Jungle Book: Rumble in the Jungle from Phase 4 Films, and it was a treat they enjoyed very much. The Jungle Book The Movie comes with the DVD Rumble In Jungle, two collectible Mowgli and Baloo figurines, and the special features include a slide show as well as a downloadable activity kit for even more Jungle Book fun. The Jungle Book: Rumble in the Jungle is a 62 minute DVD, which is available exclusively at Walmart, and it can be played in English, Spanish or French.   

In The Jungle Book: Rumble in the Jungle, Mowgli challenges one of the wolves  to a race, and the winner decides whether Mowgli gets to stay in the jungle with the wolf pack or whether he has to leave the jungle. The race is quite eventful, and even though Mowgli does not win the, the race takes an unexpected turn.

Shere Khan shows his usual evil colors, as he time and time again attempts to turn Mowgli and the animals in the jungle into his next meal. Luckily Mowgli has lots of friends in the jungle, and he is saved from trouble on numerous occasions.

Mowgli and his friends are having a blast in the jungle making music on logs, but Shere Khan is not happy with the noise, so he comes up with a plan to get rid of the noise, and as always his plan is evil. As if Shere Khan’s evil doings is not enough to disturb the fun life in the jungle for Mowgli, Tabaqui gets stuck in a well, and Appu gets lost.

The Jungle Book: Rumble in the Jungle is based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless, classic tale, and it will be a treat to watch for both young kids, and for those of us, who has grown up reading the book. You can watch the Jungle Book series on Disney XD Monday to Friday, and you can find your local listings at the Disney XD website.

My kids loved The Jungle Book: Rumble in the Jungle, and my little one even decided to dress up as Mowgli. The kids also had fun with the Jungle Book Activity Kit, which includes activity sheets such as a Jungle Book Maze, a chore chart, a memory game, and a word rumble.
