Jungle Book 2 Bows on DVD
Disney's JUNGLE BOOK 2, which premiered in theaters earlier in the year, comes to DVD (Walt Disney Home Entertainment, $29.99) on June 10, 2003. The sequel to the popular 1967 feature (the last under Walt's reign), was produced by DisneyToon Studios under the supervision of director Steve Trenbirth and producers Chris Chase and Mary Thorne. In the production notes, Trenbirth states "computer imaging was crucial during the 'W-I-L-D' musical sequence. Meanwhile, art director Mike Peraza says he rediscovered, among other things, how "circular designs and soft shapes are non-threatening and very well received by kids." The voice cast is headed by John Goodman (Baloo) and Haley Joel Osment (Mowgli).
