Story synopsis
Mowgli (Hayley Joel Osment) is now living in the man-village among the humans. His new life includes his little stepbrother, Ranjan, and his best friend Shanti, but the man-cub still has that jungle rhythm in his heart, and he misses his old buddy Baloo (John Goodman). Baloo goes in search of his friend and heads towards the man-village. However the scheming tiger Shere Khan is also on the trail to seek revenge on Mowgli. Shere Khan reaches the village first and starts to attack – thankfully Mowgli is saved just in time, by his ‘Pappa Bear’ Baloo and they both escape to the Jungle.

With a full on search for Mowgli led by Shanti and Ranjan, with Shere Khan close behind, the race is on to see who will get to Baloo and Mowgli first. But if he is to defeat his old nemesis, Mowgli will need the help of both his old pals and his new family.

Voice Talent
The film features a fantastic vocal talent to bring the jungle characters alive, including John Goodman (Roseanne, Emporer’s New Groove, Coyote Ugly, Monsters, Inc.) as the loveable Baloo; Oscar nominated Hayley Joel Osment (Sixth Sense, Hunchback of Notre Dame 2, AI) as the impish Mowgli and pop icon Phil Collins (Buster, Hook) as the vulture, Lucky.
