The first trailer for the much-delayed Andy Serkis film titled Mowgli was released on the net and it seems to be by far the darkest retelling of the Rudyard Kipling’s classic 19th-century tale of the boy who grew up in the jungles of India.

The clip is two minutes long and opens with a horrific sight: Mowgli caught in a cage by the village people while Bale’s brawny voice is heard saying, “You have only heard stories of the jungle. I lived in King’s palace in a cage just like this.” We are then introduced to a CGI animated Bagheera (voiced by Bale) and it is every bit a sight to behold.

While Benedict Cumberbatch voices Shere Khan heard saying, “My My, how you’ve grown!”, Andy Serkis, adding to his extensive resume for CGI characters, voices Baloo the bear here. Cate Blanchett also makes an appearance in last few seconds as Kaa the python and it is reminiscent of her daunting avatar as Hela in Thor: Ragnarok last.

Rohan Chand is seen playing the titular Mowgli and the film’s cast also includes Serkis’ Planet Of the Apes co-star Freida Pinto, possibly in the role of Messua.

Mowgli has been in the production since 2015 but was overpowered by the Disney’s 2016 film The Jungle Book by Jon Favreau. Starring Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Scarlett Johansson, the hugely successful fantasy adventure film that was to find a balance between Kipling’s original works and the animated adaptations. Serkis’ Mowgli is said to be going to be a huge step away from the previous film and promises to be a lot more loyal to Kipling’s stories.

The CGI footage in Mowgli features some genuinely stunning shots along with some astonishingly threatening beasts. Many scenes especially stand out like the one where a bruised Shere Khan can be seen or when one of the Bandar-log screams at the camera.

Mowgli is all set to release in the theatres on October 19.
