Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle Visual Effects by BlackGinger
BlackGinger, With the release of the trailer for Mowgli, Andy Serkis’ darker adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book story, we can give you a sneak peek at some of the work we did for this epic tale.
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (also known and stylized on screen simply as Mowgli) is a 2018 adventure drama web film directed by Andy Serkis with a screenplay by Callie Kloves, based on stories collected in All the Mowgli Stories by Rudyard Kipling. The film stars Rohan Chand, Matthew Rhys, and Freida Pinto, along with voice and motion capture performances from Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris, and Serkis.
Originally scheduled to be released in October 2016 by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film was delayed numerous times to work on the visual effects and to create space between itself and the April 2016 release of Walt Disney Pictures’ own Jungle Book adaptation. In July 2018, Warner Bros. Pictures sold the rights for the film to Netflix. The film was released in select theaters on 29 November 2018, followed by its subsequent digital Netflix release on 7 December 2018. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the cast, visual effects, and Serkis’ direction, but many compared it unfavorably to the Disney film and criticized the uneven tone, calling it a “messy—if ambitious—misfire”.
