The Jungle Book Overview:

The Jungle Book (1967) was a Animation - Adventure Film directed by Wolfgang Reitherman and produced by Walt Disney.

SYNOPSIS

The 17th animated feature produced by Disney studios and the last film supervised by Walt Disney himself, this endearing feature is based on Rudyard Kipling's story about a boy named Mowgli raised by wolves in the wilderness of India. During his delightfully scary adventures with a series of wild creatures, Mowgli learns he must leave the jungle and be what nature intended him to be - a man. Delightful jazz-inspired songs, including "Trust In Me," I Wanna Be Like You," and "Bare Necessities," make this a Disney classic. The 30th Anniversary Limited Edition includes a featurette entitled The Making of the Jungle Book and a songbook featuring lyrics from the soundtrack.

Quotes from

[Shere Khan is calmly stalking a deer just as Colonel Hathi and the other elephants frighten off his would-be prey with their noise]
Elephants: Hut, two, three, four. Hut, two, three, four.
Shere Khan: What beastly luck! Confound that ridiculous Colonel Hathi!


[Shere Khan watches Colonel Hathi and the other elephants look for Mowgli while tearing down a bunch of trees]
Shere Khan: Element of surprise? Ho! I say. And now for my rendez-vous with the lost man-cub.


King Louie: [singing] Now, I'm the king of the swingers, whoa / The jungle V.I.P. / I've reached the top and had to stop / And that's what's botherin' me / I wanna be a man, Man Cub / And stroll right into town / And be just like the other men / I'm tired of monkeyin' around.

Facts about

The xerographic system, which had been used since One Hundred and One Dalmatians, was further refined to combine both Xeroxed cels with hand inked details. For example, while the basic animation on the village girl at the end of the movie was with Xeroxed cels, her mouth was inked by hand. The backgrounds also moved back towards the more traditional look of earlier films.
The original child actor David Bailey who voiced Mowgli had to be let go as his voice broke during the film's 3-year production.
Although it is unverified, some of the animation sequences used for the wolf mother and pups appear to be reused from One Hundred and One Dalmatians, just colored differently. The motions of the wolf pups leaning on the tree log, for example, compared to three of the dalmatians on the arm of the chair in Cruella Deville's mansion.
