This kid is so adorable, he makes penguins look like rats. He’s so charming, Snow White just left home. That face is so perfect, I’d buy a forever stamp of him and then never ever use it (this is the true story of most of my forever stamps but I’d do it on purpose.)
With the names of Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Scarlet Johannson as Kaa, and Lupita Nyong’o as Rakcha (Mowgli’s canine mom has a speaking role in this one, apparently), this is turning out to be quite a starlit cast. But Mowgli was the most important role still to be decided until last week. Haley Joel Osment was too old to reprise his character from JB2, but I hope -hope-hope John Goodman got a call from Disney casting for Papa Bear.
