In case you weren’t already excited to watch “The Jungle Book”, the latest live-action adaptation of Disney’s popular cartoon feature, here’s another reason to get pumped up.
There will be a “Jungle Life” Art Exhibition taking place at One Utama Shopping Centre’s new wing. The event takes place today (6th April) and will continue until 17th April 2016.
The “Jungle Life” Art Exhibition invites everyone to embark on a journey through picturesque illustrations of wildlife portraits from Jaafar Taib’s perspective. The exhibition will feature animals indigenous to the Malaysian jungle together with the animal characters from “The Jungle Book”.
Not only will there be life-like portraits of the movie characters, but the illustrations will also bring awareness to wildlife conservation. Known for his artistic craft in drawing wildlife and animals, Taib’s best work includes “Birds of Malaysia”, an artwork which comprise of more than 120 bird species.
A green screen booth will also be available at the exhibition venue for photo taking opportunities. To take complimentary photos, you are however required to present “The Jungle Book” movie tickets.
Directed by Jon Favreau and based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless work, “The Jungle Book” follows Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves for as long as he can remember. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when the scarred tiger Shere Khan, who bears the scars of Man, wants to kill him.
This leaves Mowgli with only 1 option: to escape. Bagheera, the Black Panther who initially rescued Mowgli and brought him to the wolf pack, and the free-spirited bear Baloo, agrees to lead the young boy to the man village. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart.
“The Jungle Book” opens in cinemas tomorrow (7th April 2016).
