Seeing The Jungle Book reimagined into a live action film made me reminiscent of my childhood, the special effects and computer animation were just amazing – the story of Mowgli was really brought to life, so you can imagine it was a special treat to be able to sit down and talk with Producer Brigham Taylor and Visual Effect Supervisor Rob Legato and learn some fun facts about The Jungle Book.
Wes Bentley is a Disney dad. He’s been a Disney fan since he was a kid, and was excited to be a part of a movie with them and to do something that his could kids could see while they’re young.
We talked to him about his role as Jack, working with Robert Redford, the lumbering industry and riding on the back of a dragon with Bryce Dallas Howard.
When Oakes Fegley and Oona Laurence aren’t riding dragons, they’re just regular kids.
