15 Jul, 2014

Favreau announces that he has cast ten-year-old Neel Sethi for the role of Mowgli in The Jungle Book. Sethi will play the young Indian boy that is found in a jungle and taken in to be raised by a pack of wolves. Favreau:

Casting is the most important element of any film and finding the right kid to play Mowgli was imperative. Neel has tremendous talent and charisma. There is a lot riding on his little shoulders and I’m confident he can handle it.
