To appreciate Jon Favreau’s live action remake even more, it’s necessary to re-watch the original sixties Disney animation classic.

Some elements are better in the new version. The story makes more sense for instance. And the action and the jungle look more real of course. Other elements aren’t. The size of the orangutan is just annoyingly huge in the new version and it’s not really clear why some animals talk and others can’t.

The animation classic still entertains. After almost 50 years. The songs are still great. The humor is still efficient. And the animation, though old, doesn’t look old-dated. An absolute must.
