This definitely isn't the fun, colorful Jungle Book that you remember from your childhood! Disney has turned the somewhat infamous 1967 animated classic into something completely new and exciting! Though the animated version was known for the anthropomorphic animals at the catch soundtrack, as well as some hidden racism, there is none of that here. Instead, the 2015 version from Jon Favreu looks to be a harrowing epic similar to other movies produced by the company, including Pirates of the Caribbean and Iron Man. Favreu heavily favorites the motion-capture techniques that you could expect from James Cameron or Rudyard Kipling.

Almost everything in the movie is animation, save for the new version of Mowgli, who is played by an awe-inspiring Neel Sethi.

Take a look for yourself at the trail that was released today:

Sethi is the only human to appear on screen, but you are sure to recognize more than a few of the voices from the different characters. Scarlett Johansson will voice Kaa, Shere Khan will be voiced by Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley lends his voice to Bagheera, and Christopher Walken's iconic voice will sound King Louie. Bill Murray will voice arguably the most iconic role in the film, Baloo.

The film is set to debut in April 2016, and it is likely to be a huge hit for Disney, playing on the nostalgia of older generations and this redux of the original that will have people falling in love with it again. Warner Brothers is also developed a Jungle Book movie entitled Jungle Book: Origins, which will have the voices of Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Christian Bale, and will debut in 2017.
