Mowgli Cast in Disney's Live-Action The Jungle Book
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.15.2014



Walt Disney Pictures has announced the casting of Neel Sethi as Mowgli in their upcoming live-action take on The Jungle Book. Sethi is making his acting debut for the film, having won the role through a worldwide audition search to find the right actor to take on the role.

Director Jon Favreau said of Sethi, "Casting is the most important element of any film and finding the right kid to play Mowgli was imperative. Neel has tremendous talent and charisma. There is a lot riding on his little shoulders and I'm confident he can handle it."

Casting directly Sarah Finn added, "Neel embodies the heart, humor, and daring of the character. He's warm and accessible, yet also has an intelligence well beyond his years and impressed us all with his ability to hold his own in any situation. Even though he has no professional acting experience, his natural charisma and instincts jumped out at us."

Sethi will be the only onscreen actor in the film with Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o and Ben Kingsley all providing their voices for the animal characters. The live-action/CGI hybrid film will release on October 9th, 2015.
