The Jungle Book cast and crew were given the red carpet treatment during the film’s world premiere last night, April 4. Held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, many of The Jungle Book‘s cast and Disney representatives were on hand for photo ops including director Jon Favreau who took time to take a selfie with the crowd.
“The original film was the only time Walt Disney had celebrity casting, so I felt that in keeping with that tradition, I wanted to hire people whose voices were recognizable. It turned into something [where] the cast was able to breathe life in humanity into these digital characters,” Favreau told the Hollywood Reporter.
