The 17th animated feature produced by Disney studios and the last film supervised by Walt Disney himself.This endearing feature is based on Rudyard Kipling's children's story about a boy named Mowgli raised by wolves in the wilderness of India. During his delightful and scary adventures with a series of wild creatures, Mowgli learns he must leave the jungle and be what nature intended him to be -- a man. Delightful jazz-inspired songs make this a Disney classic. The 30th Anniversary Limited Edition includes a featurette entitled "The Making of The Jungle Book" and a song book featuring lyrics from the soundtrack.
