Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is a darker adaptation of the classic novel and Serkis claims it is tonally closer to the book (thats why a little darker) as opposed to the more cheery live-action film by Disney released in 2016. It is jointly produced by Warner Bros and Serkis company The Imaginarium.
