Jungle Book: Origins ditches lazy name for slightly improved 'Mowgli'

Originally meant to be called Jungle Book: Origins, the film will now be named after lead character Mowgli, the mancub raised in the Indian jungle by a pack of wolves.

The movie will now be called Mowgli and, while its new title is quite different and specific, its synopsis is predictably familiar.

Warner Bros.' Jungle Book film will be released two years after Disney's 2016 live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book helmed by Jon Favreau, but it seems that in an effort to differentiate the two, the version directed by Andy Serkis has been retitled to Mowgli. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch). What happens when he comes face to face with his human origins forms the crux of the story.

Andy Serkis' reboot of classic children's tale The Jungle Book has changed its name from The Jungle Book: Origins to Mowgli, after the child at the heart of the story.

Probably a wise move given that it's the second Jungle Book remake in three years. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own.

The film, slated for release on October 19, 2018, is being directed by Serkis and is the second adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's famous 1894 collection of short stories.

Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron is also supervising the project and will come in to see if there is any room for improvement in the scenes before the film opens. The original book that the Disney version was based on is actually pretty dark, so Serkis may want his film to follow that version more.
