If there aren't singing orangutans in this movie, the whole thing is a bust.

Disney continues its foray into live action remakes with the newly released trailer for next year's version of The Jungle Book.

It's got some really big voice acting names to it, a kid that looks a heck of a lot like Mowgli and some pounding drums in the soundtrack. So that's something. At the very least, it looks better than the 1994 Jason Scott Lee version.



That bear looks lost.

For whatever reason, Disney has recently decided to go back its well of immortal cartoons and remake them with live action. It's a strategy they appear to be doubling down on, because it seems like that's a phrase some Disney exec would have used when talking about this strategy.

The first of these remakes was this years Cinderella. Next will come this probably-songless remake of Jungle Book. Then for 2017, Disney is already working on a live action Beauty and the Beast. And last July, they announced they would work on a live action, Tim Burton remake of Dumbo.



You could probably thrown this year's Maleficent in with the bunch, but we're mostly talking about specific remakes rather than reimaginings. The world is full of complications.

But for now, we can just sit back and imagine what Christopher Walken will sound like as King Louie. Because that's probably going to be the best part.

Are you excited for The Jungle Book or any of these live action remakes?

After the $170 million opening weekend Maleficent had, it's no wonder Disney's adapting another one of your childhood favorites into live action. Beauty and the Beast is to be directed by Bill Condon, best known for his work on, wait for it, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn parts one and two.

5 Movies to Avoid Watching on Valentine's Day

Sure there are more depressing movies, or movies that will quickly "de-sexify" the snugglefest on the couch, but this isn't about that. The following movies should be avoided due to the INSANELY UNREALISTIC LOVE SITUATIONS they depict and that your relationship will NEVER EVER LIVE UP TO. Not ever, sorry, you'll never be that smooth (both with your words and your body hair). And, due to the fact you're watching a movie on the couch together, I doubt you have to fight the world to prove your love.
