Andy Serkis' Jungle Book movie, Mowgli, was originally supposed to open in theaters around the same time as Disney's live-action The Jungle Book, but the success of the latter ($103M in its opening week) caused Warner Bros. to blink and move their release to October 2018. Eventually, even those plans were shelved, and Netflix took up the movie.

The newly renamed Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, is opening in theaters on November 29, 2018 for a limited run (Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and London), and then it debuts on Netflix December 7th. Netflix says that it will expand later to more theaters as well.

I enjoyed The Jungle Book (so did our readers and our Featured Critic), but I'm looking forward to seeing what Andy Serkis could do with the story.

We'll get the showtimes closer to its release date, so keep an eye on the Showtimes page for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle for updates!
