The characters of the Jungle Book are back - but this time in a different, darker version of the classic story.

Two years since the release of Disney's 'The Jungle Book', Warner Bros have released their first trailer of 'Mowgli'. Their live-action version stars Christian Bale as the panther Bagheera, Cate Blanchett as the snake Kaa, and Benedict Cumberbatch as the tiger Shere Khan.

Unlike the lighter-hearted Disney version, this version of 'Mowgli' begins its trailer with the main character prisoned in a wooden cage, and is more focused on his story as an outsider and survivor.

The Warner Bros. film is released October 19th.
