‘The Jungle Book’ Spoilers: Featurette Introducing Scarlett Johansson As Kaa Unveiled [VIDEO]
Kaa, voiced by Scarlett Johansson, in The Jungle Book, keeps Mowgli wrapped under her dangerously hypnotic spell.
A new featurette for the movie introduces Kaa, the enticing snake, encountering Mowgli (Neel Mukherjee) in the thick of the jungle. "I know what you are. I know where you came from," she says. "Would you like to see?"
The featurette also intorduced Lupita Nyongo as Raksha, the mother wolf, and snippets featuring Bagheera and Mowgli in the wilderness.
Priyanka Chopra will voice Kaa in The Jungle Book for Indian audiences, playing the Indian counterpart to Johansson in the Hollywood version.
The actress revealed the first clip of her voicing Kaa in the Hindi version of the movie via Twitter. The Indian version of the trailer soon followed.
Recently featurettes introducing Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera and Christopher Walken as King Louie were unveiled.
The latest full-length trailer for the film was unveiled last month at the Super Bowl. The clip takes fans through the intense and deadly chases and the lighter moments and stuns with its VFX, seamlessly placing the human Mowgli (Neel Sethi) in the midst of all the animated characters. The trailer starts with the Shere Khan sniffing and inquiring about the odor of a human around the watering hole in the jungle where many of the animals are, adding that "man is forbidden." After that ensues an intense chase scene, where Shere Khan tries to get to Mowgli but he manages to escape. The clip also reveals lighter moments shared amongst Mowgli, Baloo and Bagheera. Scarlett Johansson's Kaa also makes an appearance in the trailer as Mowgli gets lost deep in the jungle.
The film will release on April 15, 2016.
