The Jungle Book () Sterling Holloway and Bruce Reitherman in The .. Walt Disney Studios, South Buena Vista Street, Burbank, California, USA. A description of tropes appearing in Jungle Book. The 19th entry into the Disney Animated Canon, released on October 18, Based on a collection of . This item:The Jungle Book by Phil Harris DVD £ Experience all the excitement of Disney's jumpin' jungle classic, and share the wonder with someone you.

The Jungle Book also marks the last animated film from the company to have Disney's personal touches, before his death on December 15 , Many familiar voices inspired the animators in their creation of the characters and helped them shape their personalities.

Parents say

This use of familiar voices for key characters was a rarity in Disney's past films. The staff was shocked to hear that a wise-cracking comedian, Phil Harris was going to be in a Kipling film.

Disney suggested Harris after meeting him at a party. Harris improvised most of his lines, as he considered the scripted lines "didn't feel natural".

This was her last film before she died. David Bailey was originally cast as Mowgli, but his voice changed during production, leading Bailey to not fit the "young innocence of Mowgli's character" which the producers were aiming at anymore. The animators shot footage of Bruce as a guide for the character's performance.

Child actress Darlene Carr was going around singing in the studio when composers the Sherman Brothers asked her to record a demo of Shanti's song " My Own Home ". Carr's performance impressed Disney enough for him to cast her as Shanti.

In the original book, the vultures are grim and evil characters who feast on the dead. Disney lightened it up by having the vultures bearing a physical and vocal resemblance to The Beatles , including the signature mop-top haircuts.

It was also planned to have the members of the band to both voice the characters and sing their song, " That's What Friends are For ". However, scheduling conflicts, added to John Lennon reacting badly, lead to the idea being discarded. In earlier drafts of the scene the vultures had a near-sighted Rhinoceros friend named Rocky , who was to be voiced by Frank Fontaine, however, Walt decided to cut the character for feeling that the film had already much action with the monkeys and vultures.

While many of the later Disney feature films had animators being responsible for single characters, in The Jungle Book the animators were in charge of whole sequences, since many have characters interacting with one another.

The animation was done by xerography, with character design, lead by Ken Anderson , employing rough, artistic edges in contrast to the round animals seen in productions such as Dumbo.

Anderson also decided to make Shere Khan resemble his voice actor, George Sanders. Backgrounds were hand-painted - with exception of the waterfall, mostly consisting of footage of the Angel Falls - and sometimes scenery was used in both foreground and bottom to create a notion of depth.

Following one of Reitherman's trademarks of reusing animation of his previous films, the wolf cubs are based on dogs from Dalmatians. Baloo was also based on footage of bears, even incorporating the animal's penchant for scratching.

Since Kaa has no limbs, its design received big expressive eyes and parts of Kaa's body did the action that normally would be done with hands. The Jungle Book was released in October , just 10 months after Walt's death.

The film was subsequently re-released in theaters in , , and The film made its VHS home video debut in Mexico on October 31 , , twenty years after its original release.

This release was dubbed in Spanish. The American version was subsequently re-released in on Laserdisc and VHS as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection for the film's 30th anniversary; this transfer had washed-out colors. The film was released once again as a 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD on October 2 , , to commemorate its 40th anniversary. The Platinum Edition presents the film for the first time in 1. The film was released on Blu-ray on February 11 , On February 11, a petition was made to The Walt Disney Company to restore the original aspect ratio of the film to the Diamond Edition release.

The petition has been proven effective by multiple people who feel the film's current release was not up to par with other Disney releases. The Jungle Book received an outpouring of positive reviews upon release, undoubtedly influenced by a nostalgic reaction to the passing of Disney. Time noted that the film strayed far from the Kipling stories, but "the result is thoroughly delightful Retrospective reviews were also positive, with the film's animation, characters, and music receiving much praise throughout the years.

In , when the film had its last theatrical re-release, Entertainment Weekly considered that The Jungle Book "isn't a classic Walt Disney film on the order of, say, Cinderella or Pinocchio , but it's one of Disney's liveliest and funniest", while the Los Angeles Times thought the film's crew was "near the height of their talents" and the resulting film "remains a high-spirited romp that will delight children--and parents weary of action films with body counts that exceed their box-office grosses.

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Gregory Peck lobbied extensively for this film to be nominated for Best Picture, but was unsuccessful. It was not until when Disney's Beauty and the Beast that an animated film would be nominated for Best Picture.

Longtime Disney collaborator Terry Gilkyson was brought in to write the songs for the film. Gilkyson delivered several complete songs, but Walt Disney felt that his efforts were too dark.

The Sherman Brothers were brought in to do a complete rewrite, on the condition that they did not read Rudyard Kipling's book. The only piece of Gilkyson's work which survived to the final film was his upbeat tune "The Bare Necessities", which was liked by the rest of the film crew. Smith's organ score from Walt Disney's first film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is heard from the scene where the seven Dwarfs mourn Snow White on her bed before she is put into the glass coffin.

The vultures were even designed based on The Beatles, with mop-top haircuts and Liverpudlian accents, and would be voiced by the band, which did not come into fruition due to problems with their schedule. During production, first Rocky was cut, then Disney decided the 60's style rock would cause the song to be considered dated later, leading "We're Your Friends" to be changed to the barbershop quartet that appears in the final film.

On Classic Disney: When the Walt Disney Company read " The Jungle Book ", they decided to make it a more viewer friendly film and altered the story. Here are some main differences:.

Elements of The Jungle Book were recycled in the later Disney feature film Robin Hood due to that film's limited budget, such as Baloo being inspiration for Little John who not only was a bear, but also voiced by Phil Harris.

Many characters appear in the - animated series TaleSpin. Disney later made a live-action remake of the movie, which was more of a realistic action-adventure film with somewhat more adult themes.

The film, released in , differs even more from the book than its animated counterpart but was still a box-office success.

There are two video games based on the film. A version for the Game Boy Advance was later released in Kaa and Shere Khan have also made cameo appearances in another Disney video game, Quackshot. There's some speculation that a world based on the film will be playable in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep video game for the PSP.

This world was going to be in Kingdom Hearts but was dropped out due to similarities of a world known as Deep Jungle based on Tarzan. The events of that world could take place before the events of the film began. On February 14 , , Disneytoon Studios in Australia released a sequel to the classic, entitled, The Jungle Book 2 , in which Mowgli runs away from the man village he moved into at the end of the first film, to see his animal friends, unaware of the danger he's facing with the not-yet-dead Shere Khan who is more determined to kill him than ever, due to embarrassing him earlier.
