This conservation-themed animal tale has lots of potty humor.

 

In Theaters April 15: The Jungle Book

Parents need to know that The Jungle Book is based on Rudyard Kipling’s book of short stories and inspired by Disney’s animated classic. With an all-star voice cast that includes Scarlett Johansson (Kaa), Idris Elba (Shere Khan), Bill Murray (Baloo), and Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), the movie blends sophisticated animation and live action to tell the story of Mowgli, the “mancub” raised by wolves and befriended by Baloo the bear. There may be some intense scenes in this jungle adventure that could frighten younger viewers.
