The Bottom Line

A little known fact for those who aren't film buffs -The Jungle Book is the last film by Disney Studios that Walt Disney himself had a hand in creating, and it is truly a classic for that reason alone. Based on the beloved novel by Rudyard Kipling,The Jungle Book brought the animal kingdom to life in a totally original way when it was first released - The Lion King owes more than a little of it's success to the style of this film.

With a cast of characters you can't help but love (even when they're the villains like Shere Khan) and a musical score that is beyond catchy, there's lots to love about The Jungle Book.The animation in this movie is distinct from so much of the animation we see today because it features more illustration style characters and lush painted backdrops, both of which have been restored to emphasize their beauty and originality in The Diamond Edition. The Jungle Book has literally never looked this good. Some of the extras have been used in past releases, but that doesn't mean there isnt a ton of new material - for example there's an "Alternate Ending" with Mowgli and The Hunter (who isn't a sucker for an alternate ending!) and if you want to get those songs out of your head there's some "Bear-E-Oke" to boot!

We absolutely love this animated classic, and it's been lovingly polished up for brand new audiences as well as old, it could be the perfect addition to your family library.

"Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their perfect lives." It's based off the book series by the same name and it's these girls that get tormented by "A" and it's like a mystery. You'd probably want to start from the beginning or it'd be hard to understand, it's on Netflix.
