Where's Bill Murray and Baloo?
This is neat. Walt Disney pictures has released a few images of the cast of the upcoming THE JUNGLE BOOK with the animals they're portraying onscreen. Notably absent is Bill Murray's Baloo, but knowing Murray--who is notoriously hard to get in touch with--he probably just didn't answer his phone in time.
Anyway, the photos again serve to showcase how impressive the CGI work has been for the film. The highlight here is Christopher Walken who voices King Louie, an orangutan on a mission to steal the secret to man's "red flower," fire. Are orangutan's actually that large? Yeesh.
