Watch: First Trailer for Disney’s Live-Action ‘Jungle Book’

Disney dropped the first trailer for its live-action Jungle Book reboot on Tuesday, and it looks beautiful.

The latest take on the beloved Rudyard Kipling classic is set to hit the big screen early next year, but fans can get their first look at Baloo, Mowgli, and the rest of the gang in the above trailer.

The film features a star-studded cast including Bill Murray as Baloo, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, and Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha.

Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) directs off of a script from Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li). Richard M. Sherman, who wrote the classic tunes for the 1967 original film, will reportedly be returning to write new music for this one.

The Jungle Book hits theaters April 15, 2016.
