The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.
I only heard stories about the jungle.
I lived in a king's palace in a cage just like this.
I bit, and I scratched, and I spent my entire life fighting.
Till one day, I just stopped.
And I gained their trust.
Gain their trust, little brother.
Let me go!
The jungle is no longer safe for you.
You must stay in the village.
It will be all right, little brother.
When I found you all those seasons ago, I thought I could teach you how to belong.
But I was wrong, Mowgli.
How you've grown.
When you were a cub, I looked you in the eye and saw no fear.
I believed that one day you would bring peace to the jungle.
But you have become a man now, Mowgli.
I'm not a man.
But neither am I a wolf.
I think we can both agree, Mowgli, that you are something the jungle has never seen before.
