Pre-order your copy of The Jungle Book! Bare necessity! August 23rd release.



THE JUNGLE BOOK, PRE-ORDERS FOR AUGUST, 23rd!


There have been a lot of my-childhood-has-been-raped accusations going around a while back, most of them targeting George Lucas. And while the victims must still be suffering from the traumatic experience, a surprising amount of rehabilitation has happened. Prequels and sequels have stopped to suck and started to mend broken fan-hearts.

And so it comes that one of the all time classics of animation was (gasp!) remade in (GASP!) all cgi and people are actually happy about it. Is it because director Jon Favreau grew up loving the original? Or is it because the animal characters were both motion-captured and performed live on set with elaborate puppets fromand by the Jim Henson Company? Or maybe the great voice acting by Christopher Walken, Bill Murray and similar stars?

Probably all of it, and more! The Jungle Book turned out to be one of the biggest surprise hits this year grossing over $947 million. That's enough to ensure a sequel which was already announced and could have a release sometime between 2017 and 2019. Let's hope this is a sign that childhoods will remain unmolested now. So stay away, Six Billion Dollar Man!
