Sandah seems to be a lieutenant, or beta wolf, to Vermillion. Certain translations portray him as female. Maki - A golden-yellow and cream, female wolf and Akru's mate.
Maki is a great singer and, at one point, she's seen giving singing lessons to Akru. She is a minor character and appears very late in the series. In the German version she was actually male, due to the fact that Akru was female in that version of the show.
She still retained her feminine looks though. Kichi - Mowgli's red panda friend. His parents are killed by humans.
After Mowgli accuses Kichi of causing trouble which he unintentionally does and being a nuisance, he has a harder time fitting in with the new crowd due to already being an outsider and decides to get on the wrong foot.
But his friendship with Mowgli would be put to the test when they're prompted to work together. Later in the series he lives together with Mowgli in his hut. In the English version, Kichi is referred to as a male. In the German version, Kichi is called Kiki. The confusion is due to the fact that the character was voiced by a woman in the Japanese version, a common practice in animation voice work for younger or cute characters.
He exhibits a similar protection towards her and her family as he did to the English family in the original short story, and extends this protective behavior to Mowgli. Rikki-Tikki kills Buldeo's pet Indian cobra after it tries to attack Mowgli in the middle of the night and later alerts Mowgli that Jumeirah and her family have been holed up by the villagers.
Hathi - The great Indian elephant who serves as the ruler of the whole forest of Seeonee. He is usually seen accompanied by his two sons.
Hathi first appeared in the series proclaiming the Water Truce at the Peace Rock during a drought and told the animals the story of How Fear Came. Hathi shows up occasionally afterwards, appearing once to help drive Grizzle away, another time to help raze the village, again to show Mowgli the Elephant Dance, and one final time in the series finale when the animals bid Mowgli farewell.
Chil - A Brahminy kite who served as the messenger for Akela's pack and Hathi. Linda - A benevolent English girl although in the American dub, neither her nor her dad speak with English accents who adopts Bagheera as a cab and keeps as a pet. Bagheera tells Mowgli a story about her and we meet her through flashback sequences. She has a love for not just any animal, but him especially it seems. She also seems to have a grand understanding of animals through some connection. When her father attempts to whip Bagheera while Linda gives the cat milk, she defends him by shielding him and is slightly injured when he accidentally whips her instead, when she gets in the way.
When her father confronts her and Bagheera again and tries shooting him, Linda makes another attempt to protect him by letting him out of his cage and setting him free.
As he escapes to safety, she leaps in front of her father and takes the bullets; her exact fate is unknown, as Bagheera never found out if she survived or not. Mowgli isn't sure whether he can trust him at first because of all the stories and reputation about humans, and their history with animals, but comes to accepting Bougi's offer to help when he heals him and gives him food.
He turns out to be genuinely kind-hearted. Bougi is later slashed in the back by Shere Khan, defending Mowgli and Meshua from the tiger but eventually recovers and survives.
Bougi's name in the English adaptation is Rahhar. When the family first meet Mowgli, Mari mistakes Mowgli for her son Keshnu, but despite the fact that it's not really him, she still treats him as if he were one of her own and he grows on her instantly.
She comes to love Mowgli so much so that she desperately wishes and prefers that he not take on Shere Khan. Mari's name is changed to Meshua Jumeirah's original name in the Japanese variant for the English dub. Like the other family members, he eats up Mowgli right away. When the family is kidnapped and held captive, Mowgli rescues them and helps them escape, one way of which is by saving them from the other villagers and he has his animal friends guide them to another town when the animals destroy the residents' homes.
Later, in the middle of their trek, Nil succumbs to pneumonia. Nil is renamed Sanjay in the English translation. Her grandfather originally found Mowgli when the boy was on his own from his wolf pack, saying the boy reminded him of his grandson.
Though Mowgli chooses to remain in the jungle at this time, he does meet his human friend later, along with Meshua. Meshua's family later adopt Mowgli into their family as their new son, since their other son had died.
Her name is Jumeirah in the English version. Villains[ edit ] Shere Khan - A Bengal tiger who is the main antagonist of the series. Cruel and cunning, rebellious and menacing, he violates many Laws of the Jungle including eating humans, eating the human's cattle, and over-hunting. He's also fearless of most things except that he's a pyrophobe or one who fears fire , he's frightened by guns and he withdraws when it comes to Hathi or Kaa taking action.
His loathing for humans is part of a history that goes back to his first ancestor's encounter with one. The injury on his right hind leg is dealt by Alexander in a fight.
In the last showdown, Mowgli defeats and slays Shere Khan by stabbing him in his heart. Tabaqui - Shere Khan's sidekick. Unlike the other versions of Jungle Book, he is a bungling striped hyena yet he is still referred to as a jackal as he was in the original story who never seems to get anything right. He's also notorious for being idle, greedy, incompetent, conniving, dimwitted, dastardly and chatty.
Later, he and another hyena meet their defeat when Mowgli and Shere Khan go against each other once more and both hyenas are gored by water buffaloes. It is unknown if they died from being gored or merely fainted and later fled the scene. They also work for the tiger.
Louis and the other monkeys constantly wreak havoc in the jungle and heckle the denizens. They are based on the Bandar-log from the stories. After Louis convinces and lures Mowgli away by telling him that he knows of a place where he can take him to learn more about the boy's kind, he and the other monkeys formed links or chains and carried Mowgli across the jungle to a temple also known as "The Cold Lair" , where the boy learns about it having once been occupied by humans and how they showed their negative side, and qualities, when it came to greed for treasure, as they searched for it in the edifice.
He, along with several, other monkeys, harass Mowgli and demolish his hut under the order of Grizzle the wolf. He is eventually caught and confronted by Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo and Kaa, who warns him to put an end to that and turn down any other instructions Shere Khan may give him.
Following this encounter, the monkeys in league with Shere Khan flee whenever they see Mowgli, and they or a similar band of monkeys make their final appearance kidnapping Jumeirah, dropping her and fleeing when Mowgli comes to her rescue.
Louis is known as Alba in the English dub. He has the distinction of being the only wolf in the series with any markings on his face and is also missing a large portion of his left ear. He was once a good wolf who had gone bad and got kicked out years ago for not abiding by the law of the jungle, which has since made him bitter as a result, and turned to the dark side after meeting Shere Khan, who put him up to getting revenge for his banishment.
Grizzle was the leader of a gang and accompanied by two other lupines, who were also his henchmen. Later, after a battle with Mowgli's friends and some of the other wolves, Grizzle is slain by Mowgli, who stabs him in the jugular with a stone-knife.
Bunto is Grizzle's name in the Japanese and German versions. The two decide to overthrow Akela so Jocko himself can become leader of the pack. Being wide-eyed literally and figuratively , both are also credulous. Jocko isn't very courageous, being rather skittish and nebbish Dusty also seems to get his usual deportment from him apparently. Dholes - Marauding red dogs who live in the jungle. Mowgli first encounters a few when they enter Rahhar's campsite where he is. They drive them off by making noise via banging on pots and pans.
Later, Mowgli gets rid of a larger number of them driven into the jungle by drought by luring them to a beehive and they're chased off by the swarm of bees. To escape them, they jump into a river, then when they swim their way out of it, they're mauled to death by the wolves. Linda's Father - A selfish, malevolent and commercially minded game hunter who is only out for his own personal gain, determined to claim Bagheera as his prize and constantly stops at nothing to get him.
He always mistreats the feline sadistically if and when disobedient, like when Bagheera wouldn't eat the meat that was presented to him. But after several attempts, they're always thwarted by his daughter, who incessantly interferes with his goal, until she sacrifices herself and is hit by the gunshots. Buldeo - An old hunter from the village and another antagonist in the series who always tells tall tales about his supposed encounters with the jungle animals.
After one story involving the tiger Shere Khan that he tells the other villagers, Mowgli begs to differ and refutes it when he sets out, and attempts to have the final showdown with Shere Khan.
After Mowgli slays Shere Khan and returns to the village with the tiger skin, Buldeo, whom was foiled in his attempt to take the pelt for himself, convinces the other villagers that Mowgli is a sorcerer. Especially after Buldeo, some other men, and boys observe his ability to call his animal friends seemingly through the will of magic and they turn against Mowgli except for his newfound, adoptive, human family.
He thereafter organizes against Mowgli's adoptive family, trying to frame them as sorcerers and witches through their association with Mowgli, using it as a cover-up to get their land and wealth, even attempting to hunt Mowgli with Riswan. Let's have fun with it. This was because Disney felt that the story should be kept simple, and the characters should drive the story.
Disney took an active role in the story meetings, acting out each role and helping to explore the emotions of the characters, help create gags and develop emotional sequences.
The story artists then discussed how to fill the scenes, including the comedic gags to employ. Many familiar voices inspired the animators in their creation of the characters  and helped them shape their personalities.
Disney suggested Harris after meeting him at a party. This was her last film before she died. The animators shot footage of Bruce as a guide for the character's performance. Carr's performance impressed Disney enough for him to cast her as the role of the human girl. In the original book, the vultures are grim and evil characters who feast on the dead. Disney lightened it up by having the vultures bearing a physical and vocal resemblance to The Beatles , including the signature mop-top haircut.
It was also planned to have the members of the band to both voice the characters and sing their song, " That's What Friends Are For ". However, the Beatles member John Lennon 's refusal to work on animated films in that period led to the idea being discarded. However, Walt decided to cut the character for feeling that the film had already much action with the monkeys and vultures.
Animation on The Jungle Book commenced on May 2, While many of the later Disney feature films had animators being responsible for single characters, in The Jungle Book the animators were in charge of whole sequences, since many have characters interacting with one another. The animation was done by xerography , with character design, led by Ken Anderson , employing rough, artistic edges in contrast to the round animals seen in productions such as Dumbo.
Anderson also decided to make Shere Khan resemble his voice actor, George Sanders.
Following one of Reitherman's trademarks of reusing animation of his previous films, the wolf cubs are based on dogs from Dalmatians. Baloo was also based on footage of bears, even incorporating the animal's penchant for scratching. Since Kaa has no limbs, its design received big expressive eyes, and parts of Kaa's body did the action that normally would be done with hands.
The instrumental music was written by George Bruns and orchestrated by Walter Sheets. Two of the cues were reused from previous Disney films. The scene where Mowgli wakes up after escaping King Louie used one of Bruns' themes for Sleeping Beauty ; and the scene where Bagheera gives a eulogy to Baloo when he mistakenly thinks the bear was killed by Shere Khan used Paul J.
Smith 's organ score from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The score features eight original songs: Longtime Disney collaborator Gilkyson was the first songwriter to bring several complete songs which followed the book closely but Walt Disney felt that his efforts were too dark.
The only piece of Gilkyson's work which survived to the final film was his upbeat tune " The Bare Necessities ", which was liked by the rest of the film crew. The Sherman Brothers were then brought in to do a complete rewrite. Disney said the "nice, mysterious, heavy stuff" from both works was not what he aimed for, instead going for a "lightness, a Disney touch". The Jungle Book was released in October ,  just 10 months after Walt's death.
The Jungle Book was re-released theatrically in North America three times, , , and , and also in Europe throughout the s. The film's total lifetime gross in the U.
The Jungle Book is Germany's biggest film of all time in terms of admissions with As of , The Jungle Book held the record for the best-selling home video release in the United Kingdom, ahead of Titanic which sold 4. It was reissued on video in as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection for the film's 30th anniversary. The Jungle Book received positive reviews upon release, undoubtedly influenced by a nostalgic reaction to the death of Walt Disney.
Using some lovely exotic pastel backgrounds and a nice clutch of tunes, the picture unfolds like an intelligent comic-strip fairy tale". Retrospective reviews were also positive, with the film's animation, characters and music receiving much praise throughout the years. The site's critical consensus reads, "With expressive animation, fun characters, and catchy songs, The Jungle Book endures as a crowd-pleasing Disney classic.
The film is recognized by American Film Institute in this list:. In , Disneyland Records released the album More Jungle Book , an unofficial sequel also written by screenwriter Larry Simmons, which continued the story of the film, and included Phil Harris and Louis Prima voicing their film roles.
However, the project never materialized. Elements of The Jungle Book were recycled in the later Disney feature film Robin Hood due to that film's limited budget, such as Baloo being inspiration for Little John who not only was a bear, but also voiced by Phil Harris. Many characters appear in the —91 animated series TaleSpin.
The film, released in , differs even more from the book than its animated counterpart, but was still a box-office success. In , Disney released a direct to video film entitled The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story. There are two video games based on the film: A version for the Game Boy Advance was later released in Birth by Sleep , although areas of the world are accessible via hacking codes.
