Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong'o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.

The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: THE JUNGLE BOOK - John Debney John Debney was literally born into the Disney family, since his farther worked for the company. Debney was greeted into this world through a congratulatory card sent to his parents the day he was born, which was signed by all the original Mouseketeers. As a child growing up on the lot, Debney had wonderful experiences: Walt Disney would tousle his hair, his best friend was the boy who was the voice of Mowgli in the original “Jungle Book,” and he met and spent time with the Sherman Brothers and was even on set for Mary Poppins. After college, the first feature film John scored was Disney’s Hocus Pocus. He has scored hundreds of hours of Disney projects in TV, film, amusement park rides, and for Disney’s ABC Network. When the new Jungle Book was greenlit and Jon Favreau was set to direct, there was no better fit for the project than John Debney, since Debney and Favreau had worked previously together on “Elf,” “Ironman 2,” and “Zathura.” 
The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: THE JUNGLE BOOK - Richard Sherman Richard Sherman, along with his brother Robert Sherman, has provided the musical soundtrack to an entire generation of families. Their songs include Your Sixteen, Let’s Get Together, Spoonful of Sugar, Jolly Holiday, Feed the Birds, Chim Chim Cher-ee, Supercalifragililsticexpialidocious, The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers, I Wanna Be Like You, Hushabye Mountain and Winnie the Pooh. Sherman Brothers songs have graced such classic films as “Mary Poppins,” “The Jungle Book,” “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” “The Parent Trap,” “Charlotte’s Webb,” “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” Their songs can also be heard in the Disney theme park attractions It’s a Small World, The Enchanted Tiki Room, and Carousel of Progress. On television they have written the theme song for Walt Disney’s “Wonderful World of Color.”

Richard Sherman recently composed the song Make Way For Tomorrow, Today for the film “Iron Man 2.” After a few radio hits (You’re Sixteen), the duo was approached by Walt Disney to write occasional title songs for movies. Then, in 1960, they were hired as the studio’s first on-staff songwriters—soon winning two Academy Awards for their work on “Mary Poppins.” Richard Sherman was brought on as a music consultant for the critically acclaimed Disney film “Saving Mr. Banks” directed by John Lee Hancock and starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson; the film centers around Walt Disney trying to acquire movie rights to “Mary Poppins;” the Sherman Brothers are showcased in the film. Most recently, Richard was brought in to consult and coach the actor/singer for Disney’s remake of the beloved classic, “The Jungle Book” directed by Jon Favreau. 

The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: THE JUNGLE BOOK - Jon Favreau Jon Favreau is an integral part of the formation and expansion of the Marvel Universe - Favreau directed the blockbuster hits “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2.” He also served as executive producer on Marvel’s “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Most recently, Favreau wrote, directed, produced and starred in the indie hit, “Chef,” which also starred Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. In 2011, Favreau directed and produced “Cowboys and Aliens,” starring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig. Prior to directing the first two installments of the “Iron Man,” franchise, Favreau directed “Zathura: A Space Adventure,” a children’s film starring Tim Robbins, for Radar Pictures and Sony Entertainment. In 2003, Favreau directed the acclaimed holiday smash hit “Elf,” starring Will Ferrell, for New Line Cinema. Favreau made his feature-film directorial debut with “Made,” a script he wrote and starred in opposite Vince Vaughn and Sean Combs for Artisan Entertainment.
