Adventure awaits in a jungle where danger lurks in every tree and only the brave dare enter! This energetic and creative version of the classic tale ignites the imagination and propels the audience through a world ruled by the wild. When his parents are killed by Sherakhan, the young boy Mowgli is raised by wolves, under the protection of his friends Bagheera and Baloo. In this tale of loyalty and betrayal, Mowgli must find the courage to face this challenge and choose his fate under consequences of jungle law.
