The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story is a 1998 Disney live-action direct-to-video film based on Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name. The film chronicles the life of the boy named Mowgli (portrayed by Brandon Baker) from the time he lived with humans as an infant to the time when he rediscovered humans again as a teenager.


Mowgli's village is attacked by the vicious tiger Shere Khan (voiced by Sherman Howard) and he gets lost in the ruckus and runs into the jungle. There, Mowgli met Baloo the wise bear (voiced by Brian Doyle-Murray), Bagheera the black panther (voiced by Eartha Kitt), and the rest of his animal friends and they have adventure after adventure. Towards the end, Mowgli sees humans, but decides to stay away from them and live with Baloo, Bagheera, and the rest of his friends in the jungle.
