Disney are going to make a new live action (not animated) version of The Jungle Book!

The Jungle Book is one of the most famous Disney movies ever and now they’re planning to remake it.

The story was written by a guy called Rudyard Kipling and it’s all about a human who’s raised in the Indian jungle by wolves.

And now, Disney want to do something a little bit different with it this time round.

They’re doing a ‘live-action’ version of the story. All that really means is that it won’t be animated, there’ll be real actors and probably real bears!

This has caused a bit of an awkward moment though because another movie house – Warner Bros. – are also doing a modern version of The Jungle Book. Oops.

They’ll just have to share the audience. Half get to see the Disney version and half get to see the Warner version. Sorted.

Now here’s the big question. Who do you think should play Mowgli? Let us know in the comment box below.
