Many wondered how was again an old classic Walt Disney since the mid-1960s was undoubtedly a brilliant musical masterpiece. Rudyard Kipling tale of a child of the forest that grows in the jungles of India was just fascinating enough in the book version of the original animated version expectations. So the question arose simply because the modern version in 2016 left the old-fashioned entertainment and songs behind and hugged computer GUIs live action to tell the story better. And the results have been amazing to see how the film was received worldwide.
