WATCH: 'The Jungle Book' Trailer Will Make You Crave The Bear Necessities

After mesmerising the audiences with a teaser of The Jungle Book presented in a larger-than-life and 'alive' manner, Disney has now finally released a two-and-a-half minute full-fledged trailer of the much-awaited film.

Starring newcomer Neel Sethi as the adventurous Mowgli, the trailer follows the story of the young boy in a magical, grand manner, as he encounters the powerful tiger Sher Khan (Idris Elba), the seductively sinister snake Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), the happy-go-lucky Baloo (Bill Murray), and the strict but soft-hearted black panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley).

The storyline for The Jungle Book is based on Rudyard Kipling's classic that made millions fall in love with the little Indian boy growing up with a pack of animals as caregivers, friends, and protectors.

In September 2015, Disney had shared a teaser trailer of the film, which had generated instant interest over social media. Earlier in August, they had also shared some footage from the film, including a clip of Bill Murray singing 'Bear Necessities', at the D23 expo.

The Jungle Book hits theatres in April 2016.

Watch the trailer above.
