After which ensues an intense chase scene, where Shere Khan tries to get to Mowgli but he escapes somehow. The clip also reveals lighter moments shared amongst Mowgli, Baloo (Bill Murray) and Bagheera (Ben Kingsley). Scarlett Johansson's Kaa also makes an appearance in the trailer as Mowgli gets lost deep in the jungle.
