What we thought:
At first I was disappointed that the characters were not the traditional Disney version of the characters. They're familiar and yet not. Obviously I was the only one affected by this switch as the kids loved it! The movie is very well done to appeal to the target audience. It was something new for the boys, even though they've watch the original Disney movie several times. I especially liked that each episode teaches a lesson. Rumble in the Jungle focuses on courage and bravery as well as friendship and loyalty.
The boys enjoyed that it was filled with jungle action and wild animals.
The Jungle Book The Movie: Rumble in the Jungle is a beloved classic that adults will fondly remember, with a freshness that kids will enjoy.
