You should see The Jungle Book

for its effects, even if for no other reason.  The plot is a Disney version of Kipling's work, but it's a well-done one.  The voice acting is quite good.  The visuals, though, make the film worth your money.  They are stunning.

In scene after scene, you'll find yourself wondering what is real and what is not.  Most of the time, the animals are clearly animated, but they are the best animal animations I've ever seen.  The backgrounds are often so good that you forget you're watching anything animated.

I did enjoy the familiar story, by the way; I've focused here on the movie's look because it is so strong.

If you're at all interested in the state of the art of movie animation, check out The Jungle Book.
