>>78761673 Because awkward remakes of animated classics is what's in right now. Also, give the villain an unwarranted sad backstory because we're still upset that we didn't get Wicked when we had the chance.

>>78762461 The jungle book is pretty fucking dark mane. Disney went beyond sugar coating with their original adaptation, more like dipping it in caramel then deep frying that bitch in high fructose corn syrup.
Apparently King Louie is actually a neutral threat to full antagonist in the newer version.
Shere Khan is by all means the villain (main villain, to be exact) and would fight any or all of them, just to get to the boy and quickly end him. Kaa on the other hand was actually an ally in the original story. Only the animated Disney version made Kaa a villain, likely because the west was more religious and would better identify snakes with evil.
Anger is the egg of Fear-- Only lidless eyes see clear. Cobra-poison none may leech-- Even so with Cobra-speech. Open talk shall call to thee Strength, whose mate is Courtesy. Send no lunge beyond thy length. Lend no rotten bough thy strength. Gauge thy gape with buck or goat, Lest thine eye should choke thy throat. After gorging, wouldst thou sleep ? Look thy den be hid and deep, Lest a wrong, by thee forgot, Draw thy killer to the spot. East and West and North and South, Wash thy hide and close thy mouth. (Pit and rift and blue pool-brim, Middle-Jungle follow him!) Wood and Water, Wind and Tree, Jungle-Favour go with thee!
>>78765206 I'm just poking fun at reboots of classic Disney movies, you triggered diva. In the trailer we hear the bear whistle the tune at the end. As part of the joke pretend there's some crazy asshole that said "singing the bear necessities would be too faggy!" and this was the compromise.
