Netflix unveiled the brand new trailer for “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” Wednesday ahead of the film’s Nov. 29 release date.
The much-talked-about movie is being given a limited theatrical release in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and London before it will be available globally on the streaming site starting Dec. 7.
The new teaser sees the beloved tale of “The Jungle Book” come to life once again, with Rohan Chand taking on the role of Mowgli, alongside a ridiculously star-studded cast, including Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, and Naomie Harris.
A synopsis for the film reads, “Acclaimed actor and director Andy Serkis reinvents Rudyard Kipling’s beloved masterpiece, in which a boy torn between two worlds accepts his destiny and becomes a legend.
“Mowgli has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilized world of man. Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs.”
Serkis spoke about the upcoming flick during an appearance in Singapore Thursday.
He said, according to Variety: “I wanted to make an emotional version of this story, which has already been told many times.
“I wanted to explore being an outsider. Being dislodged, being other. It is a hugely contemporary idea that could do with exploration.“
