Ron Donachie as Sergeant Harley, a brutish soldier who sides with Boone in the mutiny. Stefan Kalipha as Buldeo, a local hunter who knows about the ancient ruins. Buldeo was a character in Kipling's stories, but was altered in this version. Anirudh Agarwal as Tabaqui, Buldeo's partner-in-crime. He was a golden jackal and Shere Khan's henchmen in Kipling's stories.
Trained animals Casey as Baloo , a male black bear who was rescued by Mowgli as a cub and his best friend among the animals. Shadow as Bagheera , a wise male black panther who took Mowgli to be raised by the wolves and watches over him.
Shannon as Grey Brother , a male wolf that Mowgli had since childhood and has been his closest companion. Lowell as King Louie , a male orangutan who's the leader of a community of monkeys in the ancient ruins. Bombay as Shere Khan , a male Bengal tiger who is the keeper of the jungle law. Unlike most versions where he is the villain, here he is a neutral force of nature.
Kaa is portrayed by both a computer-generated and an animatronic python.
Other trained animals included monkeys , elephants , camels , horses , zebus , and wolfdogs. The sounds used for the monkeys were actually those of chimps  and siamangs. Pre-production[ edit ] Raju Patel, an Indian producer, figured the th anniversary of Kipling's "Jungle Book" stories publication should be commemorated with a film adaptation.
Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg saw the potential of adapting the animated classic and assigned Ronald Yonver and Mark Geldman to write the project. The role of Dr. Julius Plumford was always written for John Cleese but Sommers was discouraged that Cleese would never accept it.
It wasn't until the last minute that Cleese received the script and fell in love with it that made him want to take the role. Jason Flemyng made his film debut with this film and his role grew after Sommers instantly bonded with him. For the principal animal actors, an black bear named Casey was chosen to play a role of Baloo , a male panther named Shadow was chosen to play Bagheera , a male wolf named Shannon was chosen to play Grey Brother , a male tiger named Bombay was chosen to play Shere Khan , and an orangutan named Lowell was chosen to play King Louie.
Lowell being the only animal playing his character all the way through and according to Sommers, the easiest and most entertaining animal to work with.
Sommers didn't want the animals to speak but have them perform as much natural behavior as possible and to do as much with the actors as possible.
Animals such as rhesus macaques and Asian elephants were shot at Jodhpur and Bombay , the majority of animals were shot along with the jungle scenes in South Carolina and Fall Creek Falls State Park , Tennessee , and the scenes featuring Lowell were shot in a studio against blue screen in Los Angeles due to the production not being able to bring him to India. While electronics dominated most of his work during the early '90s, composer Basil Poledouris returned to his symphonic roots for his score to the film.
The site's critical consensus reads: The film was well received, with praise for its performances, action, and visuals, but it was also chided for not staying true to Kipling's work, even though his name remains in the title.
He said the film "has so little connection to Rudyard Kipling or his classic book that the title is beyond explanation. The sweet innocence of Kipling's fables about a boy who learns to live among the animals is replaced here by an "Indiana Jones" clone, an action thriller that Kipling would have viewed with astonishment.
He goes on to say that it is a good film, awarding it three stars out of four, but it does not fit its target audience; some "scenes are unsuitable for small children, and the 'PG' rating is laughable. Brian Lowry of Variety said that, "Technically, Jungle Book is an encyclopedia of wonders, from the dazzling scenery shot largely in Jodhpur, India , cinematography, costumes and sets, to the animals, who frequently out-emote their two-legged counterparts.
Even so, Book may have been more effective had its story stayed on one page.
