Little Mowgli lives in the jungle with wolves. But not all the animals are happy. Shere Khan the tiger knows that one day the man cub will be a man, and he wants to kill him. Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther teach Mowgli the laws of the jungle to keep him safe. Will Mowgli kill Shere Khan, or be killed by him?
