So apparently Scarlett Johansson is set to play Kaa in Disney’s new Jungle Book film.
Kipling’s original work only had like 1 female animal main character so a little gender-changing is in dire need anyway. And it’d be a shame to get rid of that Bagheera & Baloo gay dads dynamic. So after initial hesitation, I’m actually quite pleased.
And female pythons are generally bigger so 'eyyyyy.
Disney cats - Bagheera & Shere Khan
The Jungle Book (Film, 1967)
Interestingly, Frozen is not Disney’s only DVD/Blu-ray release this week. The Jungle Book 2 is getting its Blu-ray debut about a month after its predecessor got its own Blu-ray debut and Diamond Edition re-release. Since the sequel doesn’t have any bondage of its own to speak of, here’s some from the original! And some hypnosis, too, because why not? Yay snakes!
So after a few people mirrored my disappointment that the film sequence here doesn’t allow a perfect loop, I tried my hand at simultaneously editing Kaa’s tail, Shere Khan’s body, and Khan’s tail as three seperate loops and trying not to get too confused. I am hot shit.
Now you can enjoy your endlessly entranced Shere Khan!
The Jungle Book is probably my favorite animated Disney movie (along with 101 Dalmatians). I love the characters and music in Jungle Book. The personalities nearly jump off the page in these story sketches.
