Double bill featuring two popular Disney movies. In 'The Jungle Book' (1967), after being abandoned as a child, young Mowgli (voiced by Bruce Reitherman) is brought up in the jungle by wolves. However, when the news arrives that murderous, man-hating tiger Shere Khan (George Sanders) has returned, Mowgli's friends Bagheera (Sebastian Cabot) and Baloo (Phil Harris) set out to return the reluctant mancub to the humans' village. Their task is not made any easier when Mowgli is kidnapped at the behest of monkey ruler King Louie (Louis Prima), who wishes to learn the secret of man's power - fire! Disney Studios' nineteenth animated feature was the last to be overseen by founder Walt before his death, and won an Academy Award nomination for the song 'Bare Necessities'. 'The Jungle Book 2' (2003) follows Mowgli (voiced by Haley Joel Osment) as he adapts to life with humans, having followed the girl, Shanti, he saw collecting water at the end of the first film. Finding it hard to live among humans all the time he decides to visit his old friend Baloo (John Goodman) but Shere Khan gets wind of this and he still has an old score to settle.
