Related WorksEdit

A sequal, The Jungle Book 2, was created in 2003.

The animal characters were reimagined in Disney Channel's animated TV series TaleSpin.

WrittingEdit

The early versions of both the screenplay and the soundtrack followed Kipling's work more closely, with a dramatic, dark, and sinister tone which Disney did not want in his family film, leading to writer Bill Peet and composer Terry Gilkyson being replaced.

Difference from Litterary SourceEdit

As disney wanted less of a dark tone then that found in Kipling's work, some content, and characters where changed. For example, the snake Kaa is one of the heros of the book, yet he is a minor, and comical, villian in this production.
