The final animated feature produced under the supervision of Walt Disney is a lively neo-swing musical, loosely based upon the tales of Rudyard Kipling. The story takes place in a tropical jungle where people are conspicuously absent. But one day Bagheera the Panther discovers a baby in the wreck of a boat. Feeling pity on the child, Bagheera takes him to be raised with the wolves. Ten years later, the child has grown into Mowgli who soon discovers that his life is in danger because of the return to the area of Shere Khan the Tiger (the inimitable voice of George Sanders), who harbours a fierce hatred of humans.
