Thirty-six years after Disney’s original animated adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s best-selling children’s stories hit the big screen, Mowgli is still is being chased by a terrorizing tiger and gallivanting around with a benign bear in this superfluous yet simplistically entertaining film. Haley Joel Osment voices the lead character whose ADD-like mindset quickly becomes impatient with the rules and the chores of his fenced-in village. Because of this, his scrawny legs take him into the jungles of India where his adventures involve peeling mangoes, singing and dancing with a cabaret of wild animals and being pursued by a ferocious feline. Unless there was a rupture in the space/time continuum, the kids of today haven’t seen Disney’s 19th full-length feature film from 1967 in theaters. Therefore, the 10-and-under crowd will be pleased with the richly saturated colors and the musical cuddly critters, while the 10-and-over crowd will be pleased with the expeditious running time of 72 minutes.
