It comes out April 15th and is rated PG

Bill Murray [the voice of Baloo]
Oh Bill Murray how we love you and your funniness. Bill has been in such classics as Groundhog Day, GhostbustersLost in Translation (with Scarlett) and more recently Moonrise Kingdom.  And if you've heard they are remaking the classic Ghostbuster then you are correct and he is in it also. Yay!

What did I say? Ghostbusters and here's the proof.

Ben Kingsley [the voice of Bagheera]
Ben Kingsley is from England and is known for his roles in Schindler's List, Hugo and Shutter Island to name a few. He has been in so many movies you have probably seen. He has a ton of projects coming out soon some of which are: Backstabbing for Beginners, A Doll's House and Security.

Giancarlo Esposito [the voice of Akela]
Oh my gosh, do you remember The Electric Company tv show in the 70's. Well ya maybe you aren't as old as me but Giancarlo Esposito was on that show. I didn't know that. He was also in one of my other favorite movies The Usual Suspect (Keyser Söze I didn't see that one coming). Yes, and he is the Magic Mirror in Once Upon a Time. and and and he was Tom Neville in Revolution (the TV show). Crazy I didn't realize all the shows he has been in. He has a few movies coming out in the next year: Stuck, Money Monster and The Long Home (another book to movie coming in 2017). 
Lupita Wyong'o [the voice of Raksha]
You've seen Lupita Wyong'o in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, Non Stop and her Oscar for 12 Years a Slave.  She's got a few movies in the works: Queen of Katwe, Intelligent Life and Star Wars: Episode VIII  Something interesting about Lupita is she was born in Mexico City but her parents raised her in Kenya. They sent her back to Mexico to learn Spanish for 7 months when she was 16.

{Director}
Jon Favreau is a man with many hats. He acts, directs and produces and writes. What doesn't he do? He is most well known for directing Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Cowboys and Aliens. But he has directed many more films and produced many. These are some of the movies you may have seen him in: Entourage, The Wolf of Wall Street, all of the Iron Man movies and Chef.
{Author}
Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Book in 1895 and not surprisingly he was born in Bombay, India. He wrote fiction, poetry and children's books. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 "in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration which characterize the creations of this world-famous author."
