The Jungle Book 2 Review


Excellent
Last year, I received a lot of grief from readers who insisted I was heartless for panning Disney's Lilo & Stitch. As I sat waiting for my The Jungle Book 2 screening to begin, I relished the idea of more hate emails flooding my inbox if this latest animated adventure didn't bring the goods. But this time, Disney didn't let me down, and though I'm somewhat disappointed knowing those email unpleasantries do not await me, I am thrilled to give The Jungle Book 2 a glowing recommendation.

One night, Mowgli's desires of returning to his jungle home become reality. Unfortunately, this causes great concern from his girlfriend Shanti and the rest of the village. What Mowgli doesn't realize is that the tiger Shere Khan (Tony Jay) anxiously awaits another meeting with the young cub, so he can settle old scores.
