The Jungle Book, now available for rent on BoxOffice

Rent The Jungle Book, now available on BoxOffice.

The Jungle Book, now available on BoxOffice, comes with a sweet dose of nostalgia. This movie evokes many a childhood memory.

Ten-year-old Mowgli is found by Panther Bagheera (voiced by Ben Kingsley) and left in the care of wolf parents, Raksha (Lupita Nyong'o) and Akela (Giancarlo Esposito).

But the tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) loathes the man-cub. He then breaks the peaceful water truce by vowing to kill Mowgli and any other animal that will get in his way.

The Jungle Book is filmed in amazing sequences that will make you want to reach out and touch the animals. I found the snake Kaa (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) to be quite fascinating. Her slithering, powerful and hypnotic nature will make you sink back into your seat with dread.

The movie is full of adventure. It evokes a deep feeling to let go and let wild, most especially when Mowgli finds a best friend in the old, brown, care-free bear Baloo (Bill Murray).

The Jungle Book is a hearty throwback with nostalgic nuances which is enough reason to rent this masterpiece on BoxOffice on the DStv Explora.
