The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story (1998) Script

♪ [ Drums ]

[ Mowgli Narrating ] I GUESS IF MY STORY STARTS ANYWHERE...

IT STARTS BACK WHEN I WAS A KID.

YOU SEE, MY FAMILY TOOK ME ON A TRIP TO ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPOTS IN INDIA.

THE WAINGANGA RIVER.

OH, YOU SEE THAT LITTLE GUY ?

YEAH, THE CUTE ONE.

THAT’S ME, MOWGLI.

I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN--

IN FACT, I DIDN’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT ANYTHING BACK THEN--

BUT I WAS ABOUT TO HAVE AN ADVENTURE...

THAT WOULD CHANGE MY LIFE FOREVER.

COME ON, SON. THERE YOU GO.

[ Mowgli ] THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW A BOY BECAME A MAN CUB, AND HOW THAT MAN CUB BECAME A MAN.

EVEN THOUGH THIS IS MY STORY, IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT ME.

IT’S ALSO ABOUT MY FRIENDS, THE ANIMALS.

TAKE A LOOK.

IT REALLY IS A JUNGLE OUT THERE.

OOH, HATHI, LOOK. I HAVE THE WHOLE WATERING HOLE TO MYSELF.

IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

[ Chuckles ] YOU GOT THAT RIGHT. OKAY, JUNGLE MEETING.

CALLING ALL CARNIVORES AND INTERESTED PARTIES.

[ Trumpets ]

GATHER ’ROUND !

HONEY, HATHI’S CALLED A MEETING.

WELL, LET’S GO, DEAR.

LAST ONE THERE’S A MONKEY’S UNCLE !

HEY, I AM A MONKEY’S UNCLE.

WAIT UP, GUYS !

[ Growls ]

I’M GAINING ON YOU ! THIRSTY CHIMP.

MOVE ASIDE. MOVE ASIDE.

WATCH OUT FOR HIS TRUNK.

HI, BIG FELLA. DON’T STEP ON ME.

OOH, CAREFUL. YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO SQUISH A CHIMP.

LET’S GO ! SURF’S UP !

LOOK AT ME. I’M A GENUINE STATUE !

[ Shrieks ] GOTCHA !

HEY, NO BATHING IN THERE. YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO DRINK THAT WATER.

OOH, NOW HE TELLS US.

NAH-NAH-NAH !

AH, I GIVE UP. LET’S START, OKAY ? ARE WE ALL HERE ?

WAIT, I’M HERE, I’M HERE. LAST, OF COURSE. BUT THEN, I’M LAST TO EVERYTHING.

LAST ONE TO KILL, LAST ONE TO EAT.

CHIL ? THAT’S MY NAME.

CHILL. FIRST TIME I HEARD THAT ONE.

AHEM. OKAY, IT’S TIME TO REMIND YOU ALL OF OUR DRY SEASON RULE.

UNTIL THE MONSOON RAINS RETURN, ANY MEALS EATEN BY THE WATERING HOLE SHALL BE STRICTLY VEGETARIAN.

YES ! GOOD RULE !

[ Together ] GOTTA LOVE IT.

THAT MEANS ANY HUNTING BY THE WATERING HOLE WILL BE OVER MY DEAD BODY.

WHAT ? OH, HATHI, DON’T TORTURE ME.

NO HUNTING HERE. THAT LAW BITES.

YEAH. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO HUNT WHEN WE WANT AND WHERE WE WANT...

’CAUSE WOLVES RULE, AND WE’RE NOT AFRAID OF ANYBODY.

OH, YEAH ?

WHOA, LOOK OUT ! [ Growls ]

IT’S SHERE KHAN ! SHERE KHAN !

WELL, WELL. WHO SHALL I EAT TODAY ?

MAYBE I’LL GRAB A COUPLE OF DOGS.

TALK ABOUT YOUR FAST FOOD. [ Laughs ]

SHUT UP, TABAQUI. SORRY.

MMM, MONKEY BURGERS.

WE’RE FAT, WE’RE FAT ! WE’RE PURE FAT !

MAYBE AN ELEPHANT STEW FOR TWO.

WE’LL GET STUCK IN YOUR TEETH.

WITH A SIDE OF TURTLE SOUP.

SORRY. TRY THE CLAM CHOWDER.

OOH. HOW ABOUT A BOWL OF CHILI ?

[ Squawks ] LATER.

SHERE KHAN, DIDN’T YOU HEAR ME ? I JUST TOLD YOU THERE’S NO HUNTING HERE AT--

SHUT YOUR TRUNK. I HEARD YOU. AND I SHALL DO AS I PLEASE.

LISTEN HERE, TIGER. IF WE’RE ALL GOING TO LIVE IN PEACE--

YOU, BERRY BREATH ! GO SUCK A BEEHIVE. [ Laughs ]

NICE SIDEKICK, SHERE KHAN.

A HYENA THAT LAUGHS AT HIS OWN DUMB JOKES.

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, BAGHEERA.

YOU’RE MY BUSINESS, SHERE KHAN. I’LL BE WATCHING YOU.

WE’LL ALL BE WATCHING YOU.

DON’T GET YOUR FUR IN A BUNCH, TUBBY.

I’M NOT IN THE MOOD FOR ANY OF THIS JUNGLE FOOD.

NO. I’VE A CRAVING FOR INDIAN FOOD.

[ Tabaqui ] OH, I GET IT.

[ Laughing ] YOU WANT TO EAT AN INDIAN.

OH, BOSS, THAT’S CLEVER. THAT’S RICH.

OH, THAT’S THE CAT’S MEOW.

TABAQUI, PUT A CORK IN IT.

MMM.

[ Chattering ]

[ Shere Khan Quietly Growling ]

LET’S GET READY TO TANGO !

[ Growls ]

[ Whinnies ] WHOA, TANGA.

[ Growling ]

[ Yelling ]

[ Groans ] [ Screams ]

HEE-HEE. I LOVE THIS JOB.

[ Laughs ] YOU HUNTERS ARE SO OVERRATED.

RUN !

[ Shere Khan Growls ] [ Woman Yelling ]

[ Mowgli ] I’LL NEVER FORGET THAT NIGHT.

TAKE YOUR GUN !

PEOPLE WERE RUNNING EVERYWHERE. FOR THEIR GUNS. FOR THEIR LIVES.

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS FIND MY PARENTS.

BUT INSTEAD... AHA !

THE TIGER FOUND ME.

WELL, AREN’T YOU A CUTE LITTLE APPETIZER !

[ Mowgli ] AND WHEN HE FIXED ME WITH THOSE BIG, FIERY YELLOW EYES, I FIGURED I WAS A GONER.

YOU MUST BE THE SON OF A HUNTER.

HOW DELICIOUSLY IRONIC !

[ Mowgli ] IT WAS LIKE, "WOW, WELCOME TO THE FOOD CHAIN."

THERE’S THE TIGER ! [ Man ] KILL HIM !

BOSS, THEY’RE PACKIN’ HEAT.

I WON’T FORGET YOU, BROWN EYES.

[ Yelps ] OH NO, OH NO ! THEY GOT THE BOSS !

COME ON. HE’S ONLY WOUNDED.

GET HIM !

[ Mowgli ] AFTER SHERE KHAN RAN OFF, THE SMART THING WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST TO STAY BY THE SAFETY OF THE FIRE.

BUT, HEY ! I WAS JUST A KID, RIGHT ?

SO...

I TOOK OFF DOWN THE TRAIL TRYING TO FIND MY PARENTS. [ Gunshot ]

YOU KNOW HOW THINGS DON’T ALWAYS WORK OUT ACCORDING TO PLAN ?

WELL, THIS TURNED OUT TO BE A REALLY, REALLY, REALLY BAD IDEA.

[ Jungle Noises ]

[ Howling ]

[ Mowgli ] I WAS TOTALLY LOST.

I FIGURED I’D NEVER FIND MY MOM AND DAD, AND THEY’D NEVER FIND ME.

BUT JUST THEN, I FOUND A CAVE.

WELL, MORE LIKE A DEN, REALLY... OF WOLVES.

HEY, I DIDN’T KNOW ANY BETTER. THEY JUST LOOKED LIKE PETS TO ME.

LOOK, MOM, A PET.

WHAT IS IT ? A HAIRLESS CHIMP ?

I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T THINK CHIMPS COME IN HAIRLESS.

NO, NO, THAT’S A MAN’S CUB.

THERE WERE SOME HUNTERS OVER THE RIDGE. HE’S PROBABLY ONE OF THEIRS.

[ Mother Wolf ] A MAN CUB ?

WHAT’S HE DOING OUT HERE ? HE MUST BE LOST.

GEE, YOU THINK HE’S BEEN ABANDONED ?

COOL ! CAN WE KEEP HIM, PLEASE ?

NOW, NOW, LITTLE RAKSHA.

MAN CUBS ARE CUTE WHEN THEY’RE LITTLE, BUT WHEN THEY GROW UP, THEY CAN BE DANGEROUS.

[ Mother Wolf Laughs ] DANGEROUS ? NOT THIS ONE.

HE’S A LOVER, NOT A FIGHTER.

LOOK HOW CUTE HE IS, DAD. [ Giggles ] AND HE LIKES ME.

MOM, DAD, COME ON !

OH, SWEETIE, IF WE KEEP HIM, WHO’S GONNA FEED HIM ?

WHO’S GONNA CLEAN UP AFTER HIM UNTIL HE’S CAVE-BROKEN ?

OH, NO. HERE HE COMES. STAY, BOY, STAY !

OHH. NICE DOGGY.

WHOA ! DID HE JUST CALL THE LEADER OF THE WOLF PACK "DOGGY" ?

LIGHTEN UP, DAD. HE DOESN’T SPEAK WOLF YET.

THAT’S ANOTHER THING HE’LL HAVE TO LEARN, AND WHO’S GONNA TEACH HIM ?

HONEY, A PET’S A BIG RESPONSIBILITY.

BUT IF HE WAS ABANDONED, THEN THAT MAKES HIM OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

YOU DON’T JUST LEAVE A CUB TO FEND FOR ITSELF, AKELA, MAN CUB OR NOT.

TRUE. A CUB DOES NEED A FAMILY.

WELL, WE’RE A FAMILY. [ Giggles ]

SEE, HUBBY ? ALL RIGHT, WE CAN KEEP HIM.

YIPPEE ! I’VE GOT A LITTLE BROTHER !

AND HE’S A GREAT TUMMY-RUBBER. [ Giggling ]

WHAT SHOULD WE CALL HIM ? LITTLE AKELA ?

GEE, THAT’S ORIGINAL. WHAT DO YOU THINK, LITTLE RAKSHA ?

I SAY WE CALL HIM POOH-POOH PEE-PEE.

POOH-POOH PEE-PEE ? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ?

BEATS ME, BUT IT SURE SOUNDS FUNNY.

AH, LOOK AT HIM. LIKE A LITTLE FROG. "LITTLE FROG."

GOOD CALL, MOM. [ Akela ] LITTLE FROG. "MOWGLI."

OKAY, MOWGLI IT IS. WELCOME TO THE PACK, SON.

[ Akela ] YOU’LL MAKE A FINE WOLF.

AHA ! I THOUGHT I SMELLED MY MAN CUB.

[ Mother ] YOUR MAN CUB ? YES, MINE.

I’VE BEEN TRACKIN’ HIM FROM THE MOMENT HE LEFT THOSE BLOODTHIRSTY HUMANS.

THAT MAN CUB’S FAMILY KILLED SHERE KHAN !

SHERE KHAN IS DEAD ?

I TRIED TO SAVE HIM. MUST’VE KILLED TEN, 20 HUMANS MYSELF.

BUT THEN THAT MAN CUB GOT A RIFLE.

DON’T MAKE ME LAUGH, HYENA.

OUR LITTLE MOWGLI COULDN’T HURT A TSETSE FLY, MUCH LESS BAG A TIGER.

OOH, WELL, HE DID.

AND SHERE KHAN’S DYING WISH WAS TO GET EVEN, SO GIVE HIM UP.

NOBODY THREATENS MY FAMILY, BUSTER ! YEAH, SIC HIM, POP.

[ Barks ] UH-OH. CAN’T WE BARK THIS OVER ?

[ Snarls ]

I GUESS NOT. I’LL JUST BE LEAVING NOW. [ Laughing ]

HELP ! HELP ! MAD WOLF !

DON’T EVER COME NEAR MY DEN AGAIN, YOU RAT FACE !

AKELA, PAL, I WASN’T GONNA EAT HIM ALL BY MYSELF.

I WOULD’VE BROUGHT YOU A DOGGY BAG. YOU WHAT ?

BAD JOKE, BAD JOKE. YOU’RE RIGHT.

I AM... DUMB !

BIG ROCK !

[ Yelling ] LOOK OUT FOR THE TREE ! OOH !

[ Laughing ] LOOKS LIKE HYENA PINBALL.

HEY, I DO THE LAUGHIN’ AROUND HERE.

[ Snorts ]

[ Mowgli ] I’VE GOT TO ADMIT, IT WAS PRETTY COOL HAVING A WHOLE NEW FAMILY.

I MEAN, SURE I MISSED MY OLD ONE.

BUT AKELA AND RAKSHA WERE RAISING ME JUST LIKE I WAS ONE OF THEIR OWN.

AND IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE I COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THE ANIMALS WERE SAYING.

HEY, GUYS, WHAT ARE WE PLAYING ?

HOW ’BOUT PIN THE TAIL ON THE LOSER ? HA-HA.

[ Mowgli ] ALTHOUGH SOMETIMES I WISHED I COULDN’T.

GOT TO PIN SOME FUR AND FANGS ON HIM TOO !

WHAT’S HE NEED FANGS FOR ? HE CAN’T HUNT.

HE’S JUST A WOLF WANNA-BE.

I’VE GOT A BETTER GAME. IT’S CALLED "DITCH MOWGLI."

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR ? DON’T BE A SUCKER. RUN !

DAD, THEY WERE SO MEAN.

DON’T WORRY. MOWGLI’S STRONG.

[ Akela ] HE’LL FIND HIS WAY.

WELL, WELL ! WHAT HAVE WE HERE ?

ONE OF THOSE WOLVES WHO LIKE TO NIP AT US AND CHASE US UP TREES ?

AH, DID POOR OLD BARANYI GET AN OWIE ON HIS PAW ?

YOU’RE LUCKY I’M HURTING, MONKEY BOY, OR YOU’D BE FEELING THE FANGS OF FURY.

OOH, WE’RE REALLY SCARED, FLEABAG.

YEAH. YOU’RE OLD, YOU’RE WEAK, AND YOU’RE NOTHIN’ WITHOUT YOUR PACK.

LET’S DRAG HIS TAIL TO MONKEY TOWN AND USE HIM AS A RUG.

[ Baboon #2 ] BUT IF HE’S GONNA BE A RUG, THEN SOMEBODY BETTER CLEAN HIM.

YOU KNOW HOW TO CLEAN A RUG, DON’T YOU ?

SURE ! YOU BEAT IT WITH A STICK !

GET LOST ! GET AWAY FROM HIM ! HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO YOU !

OOH, LOOK. IT’S THAT BIG, BAD MAN CUB.

OOH. WELL, AFTER WE CLUB THIS OLD RUG, YOU’RE NEXT !

YOU HEARD WHAT HE SAID. BEAT IT !

BEAT THE WOLF ? [ Barking, Snarling ]

AAH ! NICE WOLFIE. SIT. STAY.

DID YOU SEE HER TEETH ?

YOU OKAY, BARANYI ? I COULD’VE TAKEN ’EM, TAKEN ’EM BOTH.

THAT IS IF MY PAW WEREN’T SO DARNED BANGED UP.

OW !

I’M NOT SURE I CAN GET THAT OUT.

MOWGLI ?

SEE THERE, MOWGLI ? IT’S IN DEEP.

[ Groaning ]

GOOD JOB, SON.

MAN CUB, I OWE YOU ONE.

[ Mowgli ] I WAS GLAD TO HELP BARANYI.

THAT’S THE WAY IT IS WITH ALL THE JUNGLE ANIMALS. WE LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER.

WHICH IS GOOD SINCE, AS I RECALL, I NEEDED A LOT OF LOOKING AFTER.

[ Yelling ]

I GOT IT. THANK YOU, MOWGLI. I’LL TAKE THAT.

HEY ! THEY CALL THIS FROG FRUIT, MOWGLI.

AND DO YOU KNOW WHY ? YES. BECAUSE THEY NAMED IT AFTER ME.

[ Chuckles ] NO. ’CAUSE IF YOU EAT IT, YOU CROAK.

MOWGLI, YOU KNOW NOT TO EAT ANYTHING WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST.

THAT FRUIT’S POISONOUS. THANKS, HATHI.

NO PROBLEM, RAKSHA. WE’RE ALL LOOKING OUT FOR THE BOY.

I’M SORRY I KICKED YOU.

OH, WELL, IT’S OKAY, KIDDO. I’LL LIVE.

BUT NEXT TIME, YOU LISTEN TO YOUR MOM. THERE ARE LOTS OF DANGEROUS THINGS IN THE JUNGLE.

IN FACT, IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A RIDE WITH ME, I’LL SHOW YOU THE BIGGEST DANGER OF ALL.

CAN I GO, MOTHER, PLEASE ?

ALL RIGHT, BUT YOU STAY WITH HATHI.

[ Hathi ] NO WORRIES, MAMA.

WE’LL TAKE GOOD CARE. OKAY, NOW, GET ON BOARD.

WE’RE GOIN’ UP ! TOP FLOOR.

PACHYDERM PENTHOUSE. WHEE ! [ Laughing ]

HANG ON NOW. ALL AHEAD.

BYE, MOM. [ Raksha ] HOLD TIGHT, MOWGLI. HAVE FUN.

OKAY, NOW, EYES OPEN.

WE’RE ENTERING THE DANGER ZONE.

OF ALL THE ANIMALS OUT THERE, THERE IS ONE SPECIES THAT EVERYONE FEARS.

AND THAT IS THE-- DUCK !

THE DUCK ? OH, DUCK !

[ Hathi Laughs ] RIGHT. DUCK.

ANYWAY, AS I WAS SAYING, THE MOST DANGEROUS ANIMAL OF ALL...

IS THE ONE WHO DID THIS.

[ Mowgli ] WHO ? WHO DID THIS ?

MAN DID THIS, MOWGLI.

MAN AND THE RED FLOWER THEY CALL "FIRE."

YEAH. AND THE MORE FLOWERS THEY PLANT, THE LESS JUNGLE WE GOT.

[ Hathi ] CHIL IS RIGHT.

FIRE IS LIFE’S GREATEST DESTROYER.

THE RED FLOWER LEAVES US NOTHING BUT DEATH.

WHICH MAKES IT MY FAVORITE FLOWER.

[ Mowgli ] BOY, WAS I CONFUSED. SEE, BEFORE I WAS A MAN CUB, I THOUGHT THE RED FLOWER WAS SOMETHING GOOD, SOMETHING TO KEEP YOU WARM AND SAFE AT NIGHT.

BUT HOW COULD SOMETHING SO GOOD DO SOMETHING SO BAD ?

HEY, HATHI BABY, SINCE YOU’RE PLAYING TOUR GUIDE, WHERE’S THAT SECRET ELEPHANT GRAVEYARD ?

I AM STARVED ! OH, CHIL !

I KNOW, I KNOW. CHILL. [ Squawks ]

OKAY, LUNCH. ACTUALLY LUNCH IS A BREEZE AROUND HERE.

HELP YOURSELF TO THE RIPEST MANGOES THIS SIDE OF THE WHITE GANGA.

THANKS, HATHI. YOU WANT A BANANA ?

WELL, YES, MOWGLI.

NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT, I WOULD LIKE ONE.

[ Hathi Coughing ] LISTEN, NEXT TIME PEEL IT.

[ Mowgli ] THAT DAY WITH HATHI HELPED ME SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE ANIMALS’ EYES.

AND AS MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE JUNGLE GREW, SO DID I.

EVERY DAY WAS AN ADVENTURE.

EVERY DAY WAS SOMETHING NEW. I WAS LEARNING THE ROPES.

OR SHOULD I SAY... THE VINES ?

I FELT LIKE I WAS READY TO LEAVE THE NEST.

NOW, FLAP THOSE WINGS, MAN CUB, ’CAUSE IF YOU FALL, YOU’RE DEAD MEAT.

[ Mowgli Yells ] OOH. OW.

MOWGLI, YOU STILL ALIVE ?

[ Coughs ] BARELY.

DARN.

[ Laughing ]

[ Screeches ] THAT’S IT, MOWGLI. NICE AND CLEAN.

DON’T FORGET YOUR TAIL FEATHERS. [ Screeching ]

[ Buzzing ]

IF ONLY I HAD A LADDER.

MMM. MOWGLI !

[ Mowgli ] WHENEVER I GOT A CHANCE, I HUNG OUT WITH BALOO, THE HUNGRIEST BEAR IN ALL OF INDIA.

OR BAGHEERA, THE SMARTEST PANTHER ANYWHERE.

NOW ABOUT BALOO. HE WAS GRUFF ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT ON THE INSIDE, HE WAS SWEET AS--

HONEY ! [ Chuckling ]

[ Baloo ] NOW REMEMBER, THE HIGHER THE HIVE...

THE SWEETER THE HONEY.

BE CAREFUL.

[ Buzzing ]

[ Bee #1 ] EAT MY STINGER ! [ Bee #2 ] LONG LIVE THE QUEEN !

COME ON, MOWGLI. NO PAIN, NO GAIN.

EASY, BOY. DON’T DISTURB THE HIVE.

OOH. PLAN "B" !

GO TO PLAN "B" ! WHAT’S PLAN "B" ?

BAIL OUT ! BAIL OUT !

GERONIMO !

OH, MAN. I JUST WAXED MY SHELL.

GOOD... JOB, MOWGLI. S-SWEET !

[ Mowgli ] I LOOKED FORWARD TO THE TIMES WHEN WISE OLD BAGHEERA AND I...

WOULD SIT AND TALK FOR HOURS.

LIFE CAME TO EARTH FROM THE HEAVENS, MOWGLI.

AND ALL CREATURES FROM AARDVARKS TO ZEBRAS ARE RELATED.

WOW. BUT WHERE DO THE HEAVENS COME FROM, BAGHEERA ?

SORRY, MAN CUB. NOBODY IS THAT SMART.

I KNEW THAT. SEE YA.

[ Monkey ] THERE HE IS !

LET’S GO ! LET’S HIDE ! YOU GO THAT WAY, I’LL GO THIS WAY.

[ Squawks ]

[ Mowgli ] AND I EVEN GOT MY FIRST KISS.

[ Laughing ] LET’S PLAY SPIN THE BANANA.

AAH !

[ Mowgli ] SOMETIMES I WOULD WONDER ABOUT MY PAST.

BUT THEN MY PACK, MY FAMILY, WOULD REMIND ME I WAS ONE OF THEM.

AND ANY DOUBTS WOULD JUST FADE AWAY.

THEN CAME A DAY I WOULD NEVER FORGET.

I WAS INVITED TO JOIN IN MY VERY FIRST WOLF PACK MEETING.

[ Howling ]

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, WE HEAR YOU. WE’RE COMING, AKELA. RELAX.

A PACK MEETING. A PACK MEETING ! COME ON !

HOPE THAT CUTIE LITTLE RAKSHA’S THERE.

THERE SHE IS, WITH THE MAN CUB !

MOWGLI, ISN’T THIS COOL ?

OKAY, PACK, EARS UP.

IT’S TIME TO DISCUSS THE SPRING HUNT.

RAKSHA, WOULD YOU LIKE TO START ? ALL RIGHT, DEAR.

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, OUR DAUGHTER, LITTLE RAKSHA...

IS NOW OLD ENOUGH TO BECOME A HUNTER.

[ Whistles Wolf Whistle ]

HEY, I HEARD THAT WOLF WHISTLE !

WHOO-AHH ! LITTLE RAKSHA ON THE HUNT ?

I’D LOVE TO BE HER FIRST CATCH. WOOF !

DREAM ON, WIMP. YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A SHEEP IN WOLF’S CLOTHING.

OH, YEAH ? I’LL TELL YOU SOME-- [ Akela ] SETTLE DOWN, BOYS.

NOW THEN, IT IS TRADITION FOR OUR OLDEST MEMBER...

TO ADDRESS THE PACK ABOUT THE HUNT, BARANYI.

OH, THANKS, SONNY.

LET ME JUST START BY SAYING OLD AGE STINKS.

I MEAN, HERE IT IS SPRING, THE ONLY TIME THE DEER PASS THIS WAY, AND I’M TOO POOPED TO POUNCE.

WHAT ? REALLY ? POOR BARANYI.

YEAH. WELL, WHAT CAN I DO ? MY DANG PAW’S STILL NOT HEALED.

I’D JUST BE HOLDING UP THE SHOW.

BUT, BARANYI, WE NEED EVERY HUNTER WE CAN GET.

DARN TOOTIN’. AND THAT’S WHY I’D LIKE TO NAME MY REPLACEMENT.

MOWGLI.

[ Gasps ] ME ?

MOWGLI ! NOT THAT TWO-LEGGED STRAY.

HE’S NO HUNTER. HE’S A LOSER !

[ Baranyi ] MOWGLI’S GOT MORE COURAGE IN HIM THAN YOU THREE MONGRELS COMBINED.

YOU SHOULD BE HONORED TO HUNT WITH HIM.

THAT’S VERY BIG OF YOU, BARANYI.

YEAH, WELL, I OWE THE KID ONE.

AND IT’S ONLY FAIR.

IF IT’S LITTLE RAKSHA’S TIME, THEN IT’S MOWGLI’S TIME TOO.

AGREED.

[ Akela ] LITTLE RAKSHA, MOWGLI, COME DOWN AND JOIN THE CIRCLE.

COME ON, BROTHER. LET’S TAKE THE OATH.

LITTLE RAKSHA, DO YOU PROMISE TO PROTECT THE PACK...

AND TO HONOR THE TRADITIONS OF OUR ANCESTORS ?

I DO.

AND, MOWGLI, WHAT DO YOU SAY ?

[ Wolf Howling ] WHAT’S THAT ?

IT’S A SCOUT. [ Howling ]

THE DANGER CALL. SOMETHING’S UP.

[ Growling ]

SHERE KHAN ! BUT... YOU’RE DEAD.

A RUMOR GREATLY EXAGGERATED.

I WAS MERELY WOUNDED IN THE BACKSIDE BY A BULLET...

FIRED BY ONE OF HIS PEOPLE !

[ Tabaqui Laughing ] YOU TELL ’EM, BOSS.

WHAT DO YOU WANT, SHERE KHAN ?

WHAT DO I WANT ? WHAT DOES HE WANT ?

HE WANTS-- SHUT UP, TABAQUI !

I WANT REVENGE.

I WANT THE BOY. HE WANTS THE BOY.

YEAH ? YOU CAN’T HAVE HIM.

THAT’S RIGHT. MOWGLI IS OUR SON.

YOUR SON ? OF COURSE. I SEE THE RESEMBLANCE.

OOH, OUCH. SARCASM.

HE’S ONE OF US, ONE OF THE PACK.

I’M GONNA BE A HUNTER.

A HUNTER ! [ Laughing ] DON’T MAKE ME LAUGH.

HAVE YOU ALL GONE MAD ?

YOU CAN’T HUNT WITH MAN ! MAN HUNTS YOU.

LISTEN UP, PUSSYCAT.

MOWGLI’S LIKE A SON TO ME, AND TO EVERYONE.

SO IF YOU MESS WITH HIM-- YOU MESS WITH US.

[ Growls ]

SO THAT’S HOW IT IS. OKAY, WOLF BOY.

YOU TAKE ROUND ONE. BUT ONE DAY WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE THE PACK WATCHING YOUR BACK, OR A FAT BEAR, OR A CONFUSED CAT AROUND TO DEFEND YOU, I’LL BE WAITING TO EVEN THE SCORE.

THEY SAY REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD.

[ Growls ]

OOH ! REVENGE IS ICE CREAM.

[ Mowgli ] OKAY, I’LL ADMIT IT. WHEN HE ROARED AND LICKED HIS CHOPS, I WAS SHAKING.

BUT I COULDN’T SHOW FEAR, NOT IF I WAS GOING TO BE MADE A HUNTER.

[ Akela ] BROTHERS, YOU ALL HEARD SHERE KHAN THREATEN MY SON.

THAT’S WHY IT’S MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER THAT MOWGLI BE TRAINED AS A HUNTER.

MOWGLI, SON, ARE YOU READY TO JOIN THE PACK AS A HUNTER AND TO HONOR OUR TRADITIONS ?

YES, DAD, I’M READY.

GOOD. THEN AS LEADER OF THE CIONI WOLF PACK, I OFFICIALLY WELCOME MOWGLI AND LITTLE RAKSHA TO THE HUNT.

ALL RIGHT ! I CAN’T WAIT.

[ Mowgli ] I WAS DEFINITELY UP FOR LEARNING TO HUNT.

NOT ONLY WOULD IT EARN ME THE RESPECT OF THE PACK.

BUT IT WOULD ALSO HELP WHEN IT CAME TO SHERE KHAN. BAGHEERA GOT ME STARTED.

A BIG PART OF HUNTING IS TRICKERY.

LET’S TRY AND FOOL CHIL INTO FLYING OVER HERE.

MOWGLI, TRY THE VULTURE CALL.

[ Makes Cawing Sound ]

WHAT ON EARTH WAS THAT ? SOUNDED LIKE A PREGNANT WATER BUFFALO.

WHAT ? OH, SWEETIE, I’M GONNA BE A DAD ?

YOU MIGHT WANT TO WORK ON THAT.

DON’T WORRY, I’LL GET IT.

LET’S FORGET ABOUT TRICKERY FOR NOW. LET’S FOCUS ON STALKING AND CATCHING.

THE KEY, MOWGLI, IS TO USE ALL OF YOUR SENSES.

YOUR SENSE OF SOUND.

YOUR SENSE OF SIGHT.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, YOUR SENSE OF...

I GOT IT ! PRETTY GOOD ONE, HUH ?

SMELL !

OH, BYE, MOWGLI ! [ Mowgli ] BAGHEERA ?

YUK, KID. YOU NEED A BATH.

BAGHEERA !

[ Mowgli ] THAT WAS A LESSON I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER.

AND THE SMELL ! OOH !

THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET.

EXHAUSTED FROM A LONG DAY’S HUNTING LESSONS, I’D COLLAPSE IN THE SAFETY OF OUR CAVE...

HOPING FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S REST.

[ Quiet Growling ]

[ Loud Growl ]

[ Mowgli ] BUT THERE WAS NO ESCAPING MY FEAR OF SHERE KHAN.

AS TIME WENT ON, BALOO WORKED ME HARDER THAN BAGHEERA.

[ Baloo ] SNACK TIME, KIDDO.

[ Mowgli ] THAT GUY LEFT NO LOG UNTURNED.

GRUBS, MAGGOTS AND WORMS ARE A GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN.

AND THEY’RE DELICIOUS !

[ Grunting ] THIS THING’S HEAVY. WHAT DO YOU SEE UNDER THERE ?

SORRY, BALOO. THERE ARE NO BUGS UNDER THIS ONE EITHER.

WHAT ? ARE YOU SURE ?

YEAH.

[ Groaning ] ALL RIGHT, COME ON.

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS.

HOW AM I GONNA TEACH YOU TO HUNT GRUBS, SLUGS AND MEALY WORMS...

WHEN THERE AREN’T ANY LEFT TO EAT...

I MEAN, HUNT ?

I DON’T KNOW. MAYBE YOU SHOULD TEACH ME TO HUNT FRUIT.

HUNT FRUIT ?

HEY, CAT WOMAN, ARE YOU SPYING ON US ?

BALOO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ? MOWGLI NEEDS TO LEARN HUNTING, NOT EATING.

WELL, HUNTING AND EATING GO TOGETHER LIKE, UH... BUGS AND HONEY.

THAT’S RIGHT. [ Baloo ] BESIDES, HE’S BEEN DOING HIS HOMEWORK.

SHOW HER WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE BIRD CALL, MOWGLI.

[ Makes Bird Call Sounds ]

I’VE BEEN WORKIN’ ON IT.

[ Chuckling ] I CAN TELL.

[ Chil Squawks ] HEY, LOOK !

I’M COMING, I’M COMING, I’M COMING, I’M COMING, I’M COMING, I’M COMING.

[ Sighs ] I’M HERE.

OH, IT’S YOU.

IT’S NOT NICE TO FOOL MOTHER VULTURE.

[ Laughs ] THAT WAS DARN GOOD, MAN CUB. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS, HUH ?

SCHOOL’S OUT. TIME TO GET WET !

BUT MOWGLI-- DON’T WORRY, BAGGY. I’LL HEAD TO THE WATER.

TEACH HIM HOW TO EAT FISH.

I MEAN HUNT ! HUNT FISH. YEAH.

BALOO, IF ONLY YOUR BRAIN WAS AS BIG AS YOUR STOMACH.

WHOA ! [ Laughing ]

[ Whoops Like Tarzan ]

ALL RIGHT !

THERE HE GOES AGAIN.

[ Together ] INCOMING ! OH.

[ Yelling ]

[ Chattering ] NICE FACE FLOP.

[ Tabaqui Laughing ]

DID YOU SEE THAT BUSH-LEAGUE DIVE ?

WHAT A SPLASH. HIS FORM WAS HORRIBLE. LET’S EAT HIM.

NOT YET, BRAIN FREE.

SEE YA. GOOD HANG TIME. BAD ENTRY.

SO, EXACTLY WHAT IS THE PLAN, BOSS ?

TO SEPARATE THE BOY FROM HIS FAMILY.

I DID IT ONCE, I CAN DO IT AGAIN.

YEAH, BUT, UH, THAT WAS HUMANS.

THIS IS WOLVES, AND THE PACK STICKS TOGETHER. THEY’RE STRONG, LIKE A CHAIN.

AND YOU WILL FIND THE WEAKEST LINK...

RIGHT AFTER YOU WIN THE GOLD.

[ Laughs ] WIN THE GOLD ! FOR WHAT ? FACE FLOPPING.

[ Yelling ]

OH, YEAH ! NOW THAT’S A DIVE. NOT BAD.

MAN, IF I ONLY HAD A LEMON.

SO, BOY, WHAT’S THE CATCH OF THE DAY ?

MISSED AGAIN !

I’VE DECIDED I DON’T LIKE FISH ANYMORE, BALOO.

WHAT ? FISH IS GOOD.

IT’S BRAIN FOOD. DON’T YOU WANT TO BE A GENIUS LIKE ME ?

I’M NEVER GONNA GET THE HANG OF CATCHING FISH.

THEY’RE JUST TOO FAST FOR ME. THEY’RE TOO FAST FOR ME TOO.

BUT YOU CAN LEARN TO OUTSMART ’EM IF YOU WORK AT IT. KEEP PRACTICING...

AND YOU’LL BE A MASTER HUNTER LIKE ME !

HA. LIKE YOU ?

YOU COULDN’T SNEAK UP ON A LOG. [ Laughing ] MAYBE NOT.

BUT YOU’VE GOT TO THINK POSITIVE, MOWG.

YOU START GETTING LAZY, AND SHERE KHAN WILL SURPRISE YOU.

[ Angry Growl ] LIKE THAT.

YIKES ! DARN YOU, WOMAN. I NEARLY WET MY FUR.

GEE, BALOO, THANKS FOR SHARING.

MAN CUB, BALOO’S RIGHT. A GOOD HUNTER...

NEVER LETS HIS GUARD DOWN BECAUSE SOMETHING COULD BE HUNTING HIM.

AND WE KNOW WHO’S HUNTING YOU.

SHERE KHAN WANTS HIS REVENGE.

BUT I DON’T GET IT. IT WASN’T ME WHO SHOT HIM.

IT’S NOT FAIR. [ Baloo ] WE KNOW THAT, BUT SHERE KHAN DOESN’T PLAY FAIR.

NEVER HAS. AND A TIGER CAN’T CHANGE HIS STRIPES.

MOWGLI, LOOK INTO MY EYES.

YOUR EYES ? WHY ? I WANT YOU TO SEE...

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE CAUGHT IN A BIG CAT’S GAZE.

SHERE KHAN’S EYES HYPNOTIZE HIS PREY.

MAYBE IF YOU PRACTICE ON ME, YOU WON’T FALL UNDER HIS SPELL.

[ Mowgli ] BAGHEERA WASN’T KIDDING.

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT A CAT’S COLD YELLOW EYES...

THAT SENDS A SHIVER DOWN YOUR SPINE.

I FINALLY HAD TO LOOK AWAY.

NOT BAD, MOWGLI.

[ Mowgli ] IT WAS A GOOD LESSON, BUT ONE I HOPED I’D NEVER HAVE TO USE.

♪ [ Humming ]

♪ FOUR LITTLE, THREE LITTLE TWO LITTLE INDIANS ♪

♪ ONE LITTLE INDIAN BOY ♪ YO, SHERE KHAN. OVER HERE.

GREETINGS, GENTLEMEN. TABAQUI TELLS ME YOU’RE UNHAPPY.

YEAH. WE DON’T LIKE THE MAN CUB.

HEY, COME ON. HE’S NOT A WOLF.

AND AKELA HAS NO RIGHT PUTTIN’ HIM IN OUR HUNT.

I COULDN’T AGREE WITH YOU MORE.

YOU KNOW HOW EAGER HE IS TO BE A HUNTER.

MAYBE A LITTLE PUSH FROM YOU GUYS COULD LAUNCH HIM...

IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

MOWGLI, THIS IS SO EXCITING. [ Giggles ]

SHH. MUZZLE IT, SWEETIE.

WE DON’T WANT TO SPOOK THE DEER.

[ Akela ] ALL RIGHT, TROOPS, GATHER AROUND.

HERE’S THE PLAN. WE’LL SPLIT INTO THREE GROUPS.

RAKSHA AND I WILL HIDE BEHIND THE LEFT SIDE OF THE RIDGE.

LITTLE RAKSHA, YOU AND TWO OTHER HUNTERS WILL COME UP FROM THE RIGHT SIDE.

OKAY, POP. I MEAN, YES, SIR.

MOWGLI, YOU AND SOME BROTHER WOLVES WILL COME STRAIGHT UP THIS HILL...

TO CUT OFF THEIR ESCAPE, UNDERSTOOD ?

YES, SIR. ME AND MY TWO PALS VOLUNTEER TO RUN WITH MOWGLI.

YEAH. LIKE OLD BARANYI SAID, IT WOULD BE AN HONOR. TOTALLY.

GOOD. WAIT FOR MY SIGNAL.

MOVE ’EM OUT.

THIS WAY, BUDDY.

OKAY, GET READY TO EAT MY DUST, MOWGLI.

HALF THE LEGS, HALF THE SPEED. YOU’RE JUST JEALOUS.

I COULD OUTRUN YOU ANY DAY AND YOU KNOW IT.

MAYBE IN YOUR DREAMS, MAN CUB.

YOU’RE AFRAID. I KNEW IT. AFRAID ?

YOU COULD TIE TWO LEGS BEHIND MY BACK, AND I’D STILL BEAT YOU PAWS DOWN.

OH, YEAH ? WANT TO SEE WHO’S FASTER ?

[ Mowgli ] I BET I COULD GET TO THE DEER BEFORE YOU CAN. YOU’RE ON.

AND LOSER HAS TO EAT LAST, EVEN AFTER THAT VULTURE CHIL.

ON YOUR MARK, GET SET... GO !

A HUNTER ! AM-SCRAY ! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE !

[ Akela ] AFTER THEM. NOW, NOW, NOW ! WE’LL NEVER CATCH THEM.

WHAT WAS THE BOY THINKING ? HE WASN’T !

GOTCHA !

[ Barking ]

KEEP GOING. HEAD FOR THE TREES. WE’LL BE SAFE.

[ Barking ]

ALL RIGHT, HOLD UP. DARN THAT MOWGLI.

SAVE YOUR STRENGTH. WE’LL NEVER CATCH THEM NOW. [ Grumbling ]

[ Wolf ] NICE GOIN’, MAN CUB !

[ Sighs ]

SO, MAN CUB, WE’RE CURIOUS.

DOES "MOWGLI" MEAN "LITTLE FROG" ? OR "BIG GOAT" ?

[ Wolves Laughing ] [ Akela ] MOWGLI ?

SON, WHAT HAPPENED BACK THERE ? WHAT ELSE ? HE PANICKED.

SHERE KHAN WAS RIGHT. A MAN DOESN’T BELONG WITH WOLVES.

NONSENSE. MOWGLI’S FAMILY.

MAYBE YOUR FAMILY, BUT NOT OURS.

AND NOW, THANKS TO HIM, WE’RE ALL GOIN’ HUNGRY. MAYBE WE NEED A NEW LEADER.

YEAH, ONE WHO’S GOT A SON WITH FOUR LEGS, FANGS, SOME FUR.

AND A BRAIN. LET’S GO. I’M HUNGRY.

LET’S SCARE UP SOME FOOD. BEFORE MOWGLI SCARES IT ALL AWAY.

DAD, I’M REALLY SORRY, BUT IT WASN’T MY FAULT. THOSE GUYS--

SON, YOU TOOK THE HUNTER’S OATH. YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO WAIT FOR MY SIGNAL.

YEAH, BUT YOU SHOULD’VE HEARD THEM.

THEY’RE ALWAYS ON MY CASE ABOUT HOW I’M DIFFERENT, NOT A WOLF.

YOU’RE OUR SON, MOWGLI. YOU KNOW THAT.

SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK...

OR WHERE I BELONG.

MAYBE I JUST NEED TO GO AWAY BEFORE I CAUSE ANY MORE TROUBLE.

MOWGLI, DON’T BE FOOLISH.

YOU’RE ALL BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME.

SON, WAIT. MOWGLI ! MOWGLI, WAIT ! PLEASE DON’T GO.

[ Mowgli ] IT HURT TO LEAVE, BUT I HAD TO GO.

I BLEW IT ! IT WAS MY DAD’S IDEA TO MAKE ME A HUNTER, SO MY MISTAKE WAS HIS MISTAKE.

[ Snarling ]

DELICIOUS. BEING A TRAITOR PAYS OFF.

[ Wolf #2 ] WORKING FOR SHERE KHAN PAYS OFF.

[ Wolf #3 ] HEY, DON’T HOG ALL THE CARCASS, DUDES. [ Snarling ]

HOW’S THE EATS, BOYS ? ENJOYING MY LITTLE REWARD ?

OH-OH, SHERE KHAN, YOU SHOULD’VE BEEN THERE.

THAT MORON MAN CUB SCREWED UP BIG TIME.

YEAH, THE WHOLE PACK HATES HIM NOW. [ All Laughing ]

YEAH, WE REALLY DID THE JOB ON HIM.

[ Shere Khan ] GOOD.

YOU’VE SEPARATED HIM FROM HIS PACK.

NOW ALL I NEED TO DO IS LURE HIM AWAY FROM BALOO AND BAGHEERA.

[ Howling ]

MOWG.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE HUNT. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES, EVEN ME.

[ Bagheera ] LISTEN TO ME, MAN CUB.

I’M SURE THE PACK FORGIVES YOU, AND YOUR PARENTS MUST BE WORRIED SICK.

TOMORROW WE’LL TAKE YOU BACK.

I DON’T WANT TO GO BACK. I CAN’T FACE THEM, NOT AFTER TODAY.

I JUST WANT TO DIG A BIG HOLE AND HIDE, OR RUN AWAY AND LEAVE THE JUNGLE.

[ Bagheera ] NOW, NOW, MAN CUB.

I KNOW YOU’RE UPSET, BUT RUNNING AWAY...

IS NOT THE ANSWER.

ONCE WHEN I WAS JUST A CUB, I GOT MAD AT MY PARENTS AND I RAN AWAY FROM HOME.

IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG BEFORE I WAS CAUGHT...

BY SOME HUNTERS WHO WERE GOING TO SELL ME FOR MY FUR.

I WAS CHAINED UP IN A CAGE, AND I THOUGHT I’D NEVER SEE MY FAMILY AGAIN.

BUT LATER, WHEN THEY WERE MOVING ME TO A BIGGER CAGE, I MANAGED TO ESCAPE.

AND I GOT LUCKY, MOWGLI, AND I LEARNED A VERY VALUABLE LESSON.

THAT IF YOU ARE MAD OR UPSET, THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS RUN AWAY FROM YOUR TROUBLES.

[ Baloo ] BAGHEERA’S RIGHT.

LIKE, IF I’M OUT OF HONEY, I DON’T GET MAD AND DO SOMETHING DUMB.

I JUST... GO GET HONEY.

YOU MEAN YOU GET ME TO GET YOUR HONEY.

OR THAT. ANYWAY, SON, WHY DON’T YOU TAKE SOME TIME, SLEEP ON IT.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT ? TOMORROW’S A BRAND-NEW DAY.

IF YOU SAY SO.

GOOD NIGHT.

[ Baloo ] GOOD NIGHT, MOWGLI. [ Bagheera ] GOOD NIGHT, MOWGLI.

BALOO, TOMORROW I’LL GO TELL RAKSHA.

[ Quiet Growling ]

[ Tabaqui Laughing ]

PARDON MY TARDINESS, YOUR TERRIBLY TERRIFIC TIGERNESS.

BUT THIS TIME I THINK I REALLY EARNED MY STRIPES.

I’LL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT.

BRR-BRR-BRR-BRR.

[ Shere Khan ] WHO HAVE YOU RECRUITED ?

YO, GUYS ! COME ON DOWN AND MEET THE CAT...

WHO PUT THE "GRR" IN TIGER.

AH, YOU KNOW WHAT ? WE’RE JUST GONNA STAY OVER HERE...

BECAUSE WE’D RATHER NOT GET EATEN, IF THAT’S ALL RIGHT WITH YOU.

YEP. WE’RE FUNNY THAT WAY.

I HAVE NO PLANS TO EAT YOU.

IF I ATE YOU, WHAT GOOD WOULD IT DO ME ?

A LOT IF YOU’RE HUNGRY.

[ Laughing ] [ Shere Khan ] RELAX.

IF I WANTED TO EAT SOMETHING AND THEN COUGH UP A FUR BALL, I’D BE CHEWING TABAQUI.

[ Tabaqui ] "CHEWING TABAQUI !"

[ Laughing ] DARN THAT’S GOOD. THAT’S CLEVER, BOSS.

[ Gulps ] THAT’S ME.

NOW, THEN, YOU THREE KNOW THAT FAT OLD FOOL BALOO ?

SURE DO. HATE HIM.

HATE HIM. AW, HE’S NOT SO BAD.

[ Chitters ] HATE HIM.

HOW’D YOU LIKE TO HAVE HIS SECRET HONEY STASH ? I COULD SHOW IT TO YOU.

AW, BABY ! SHOW ME THE HONEY.

WHOO-WHEE ! [ Whistles ]

SHOW ME THE HONEY ! SHOW ME THE HONEY ! SHOW ME THE HONEY TOO.

SHOW ME THE HONEY. [ Shere Khan ] IT’S YOURS.

BUT ONLY AFTER YOU LURE THE BOY AWAY FROM BALOO AND BAGHEERA.

YOU GOT YOURSELF A DEAL, "TIGGER."

[ Together ] ♪ WE’RE IN THE HONEY WE’RE IN THE HONEY ♪ YES, SIR ! OH, YEAH ! COME ON, LET’S GO.

[ Laughing ] WHOOPS.

TABAQUI, DON’T LAUGH.

YOU’LL ONLY ENCOURAGE THEM.

[ Groaning ]

OOH, FISH ARE JUMPIN’.

HEY, MOWG, WHAT DO YOU SAY WE HUSTLE UP A LITTLE FISH FOR BREAKFAST ?

YUM, YUM. BALOO, THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING, BY THE TIME I CATCH ONE, IT’LL BE TIME FOR LUNCH.

HEY, PAL, CHEER UP.

AND I THOUGHT WE AGREED. TODAY’S A BRAND-NEW DAY.

DOESN’T MEAN IT’S A GOOD DAY.

[ Monkey #1 ] HEY ! HEY, KID ! HERE, YOU ! [ Monkey #2 ] MAN CUB !

WHY THE LONG FACE ? [ Monkey #2 ] COME PLAY WITH US.

LOOK, BALOO, THEY’RE SWINGERS, JUST LIKE ME.

[ Mowgli ] HEY, GUYS, THROW ME A VINE.

MOWG, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HANG WITH CLOWNS...

WHEN YOU CAN KICK BACK AND HANG WITH A BEAR ?

HEY, I’M A BEAR. AND I’M A BEAR.

LOOK, I’M A BEAR.

SOMEBODY DROP SOME FOOD IN MY MOUTH. I HAVEN’T EATEN IN SECONDS.

[ Laughing ]

OH, YOU MONKEYS ARE A BARREL OF LAUGHS. COME ON, PAL, LET’S GO.

BUT LOOK AT THEM, BALOO. THEY LOOK A LITTLE LIKE ME.

[ Mowgli ] AND THEY LIKE TO HAVE FUN LIKE ME. YOU BETCHA, MAN CUB.

LET’S MAKE LIKE A BANANA AND SPLIT.

DON’T DO ANYTHING FOOLISH, MOWG.

COME ON, BALOO.

HOW ABOUT SOME FRUIT SALAD, CHUBBY ? HEY !

YEAH, WE’LL TOSS IT.

EVER SEE A FRUIT FLY ? OH, FUNNY.

HEY, GREAT SHOT ! HOW CAN YOU MISS ? HE’S HUGE.

ENOUGH !

WE BETTER GET OUT OF HERE. [ Monkey #2 ] BEFORE HE EATS ALL OUR AMMO.

THESE GUYS ARE FUN, BALOO. THEY’RE NOT LIKE THE WOLF PACK, ALWAYS PUTTING ME DOWN.

MOWGLI, HOLD ON. [ Monkey #1 ] PARTY TIME !

[ Mowgli ] A PARTY ? YES, PARTY ! ALL RIGHT !

COME ON. YOU’RE INVITED. MONKEY TOWN, HERE WE COME !

A PARTY ! A PARTY ! GO, GO !

DON’T WORRY. I’LL SEE YOU LATER, BALOO.

HEY, WAIT UP ! [ Grunts ] BAGHEERA’S NOT GONNA LIKE THIS.

WE’RE YOUR PACK NOW.

PARTY ? WHAT KIND OF PARTY ?

OH, IT’S A... SURPRISE.

AH, RIGHT, YEAH. I’LL BET IT IS. UH-UH.

MOWGLI, DON’T EVEN THINK OF GOING TO THAT PAR-- CHIL, CHILL !

"CHIL, CHILL." RAA-RAA-RAA.

YOU TELL HER, MOWGLI ! [ Monkey #2 ] HE JUST DID.

YEAH, MOWGLI. YOU "DA" MAN CUB !

WHICH WAY ?

THIS WAY. FOLLOW US. COME ON.

GET THE LEAD OUT. USE YOUR KNUCKLES.

[ Squawks ] OKAY, NOTE TO MYSELF.

FIRST, FIND RAKSHA, TELL HER ABOUT MOWGLI.

SECOND, CHANGE MY STUPID NAME ! [ Squawks ]

RIGHT THIS WAY.

COME ON, MOWGLI.

MMM, VISITORS.

HERE IT IS ! MONKEY TOWN !

[ Laughing ]

WELL, THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

HELLO ?

KIDS, DON’T STARE. SORRY.

RIGHT ON TIME.

WELCOME TO MONKEY TOWN, WHERE IT’S ONE NONSTOP PARTY.

[ Screeches ]

[ Gasps ] THEY DON’T LOOK VERY HAPPY.

YOU’RE NO BARREL OF HUMANS YOURSELF !

WOW ! WHAT IS THAT ?

[ Monkey #1 ] THAT’S OUR TREASURE HOUSE. IT’S FULL OF SURPRISES.

GO ON IN. EVERYONE’S WAITIN’ FOR YA.

[ Laughing ]

RIGHT THIS WAY, MOWGLI.

[ Grunting ]

SAVE US SOME CAKE. MM-HMM.

[ Mowgli ] HELLO ?

ANYBODY HOME ?

SURPRISE ! [ Laughing ]

LET ME GO ! LET ME OUT OF HERE.

RELAX, MAN CUB. YOU’RE GONNA LOVE THE PARTY.

YEAH. FIRST, THERE’S GONNA BE A DINNER. THEN WE’RE GONNA GET DESSERT.

DO YOU LIKE CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA FROSTING ?

OR HOW ABOUT HONEY ?

SIT TIGHT, MAN CUB. WE’LL GO GET THE SNACKS.

COME BACK ! COME BACK, YOU GUYS ! DON’T LEAVE ME HERE.

[ Screeches ]

NICE TRY, BUDDY. [ Laughing ]

[ Mowgli ] AS I SAT THERE ALL ALONE, I REALIZED TWO THINGS.

ONE, THE PARTY WAS DEFINITELY OVER.

AND TWO, NO MATTER WHAT, BALOO WOULD BE SEARCHING FOR ME HIGH AND LOW.

NOW, WHERE THE-- I JUST CAN’T UNDERSTAND THIS.

BALOO, HAVE YOU SEEN MOWGLI LATELY ?

HAVE YOU SEEN MY HONEY ? I CAN’T FIND MY SECRET STASH OF HONEY !

HONEY ? I’M ALL OVER THAT LIKE FLIES ON... HONEY.

BALOO, I ASKED YOU A QUESTION.

HUH ? OH, OH, RIGHT. MOWGLI.

HE WOULDN’T LISTEN, BAGGY.

HE RAN OFF WITH A GANG OF CRAZY MONKEYS.

HE WHAT ? FORGET FOOD FOR ONCE, BALOO. COME ON, LET’S FIND HIM.

[ Baloo ] ABSOLUTELY. RIGHT AFTER I--

[ Grunting ] DANG ! MY HEAD’S STUCK.

OH BOY, OH BOY, OH BOY. HONEY, HONEY, HONEY, HONEY !

RAMMING SPEED !

AAAH !

[ Mowgli ] WHILE I WAITED FOR THOSE STUPID MONKEYS TO STOP PLAYING THEIR BAD JOKE, I FOUND SOME STRANGE THINGS THAT SEEMED ODDLY... FAMILIAR.

HELLO ? CAN YOU COME OUT ?

HOW DID YOU GET IN THERE ?

HEY ! [ Laughing ]

[ Laughing Continues ]

EEW !

[ Snarling ]

[ Whimpering ]


[ Mowgli ] GUESS WHAT. THOSE CHIMPS WERE RIGHT.

THIS WAS A TREASURE HUT.

AND I HAD FOUND THE GREATEST TREASURE OF ALL.

THE RED FLOWER.

OH, FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, WHERE-- THERE SHE IS. FINALLY.

[ Squawks ] RAKSHA !

WHAT’S UP WITH MOWGLI ?

I SAW HIM FOLLOWING SOME MONKEYS OVER TO MONKEY TOWN.

THEY SAID THEY HAD A SURPRISE FOR HIM.

A SURPRISE ?

SHERE KHAN. QUICK. GO. TELL THE OTHERS.

CHIL AIRLINES READY FOR TAKEOFF.

PLEASE STOW ALL CARRY-ON LUGGAGE.

MMM, CARRION. YUMMY. [ Squawks ]

[ Humming ] ♪ YOU’RE MAKING ME NERVOUS ♪ HELLO.

SHERE KHAN, WE TRAPPED THE MAN CUB IN MONKEY TOWN.

JUST LIKE WE PLANNED. GOOD JOB.

YOU SHOULD COME WORK FOR ME. I’M ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW SIDEKICKS.

-NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. I KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR SIDEKICKS. -HUH ?

YES, AND WHEN I THINK OF THEM, I STILL GET A LUMP IN MY THROAT. COME ON, TABAQUI, LET’S EAT.

HEY, BOSS, IS IT TRUE ? DO HUMANS REALLY TASTE JUST LIKE CHICKEN ?

ACTUALLY, THEY TASTE MORE LIKE HYENA.

UH-OH.

MOVE IT, TABAQUI. CHOP-CHOP.

DON’T WORRY, CHIEF. I KNOW A SHORTCUT.

MONKEY TOWN !

BALOO, I TOLD YOU THOSE MONKEYS WERE UP TO NO GOOD.

LET’S JUST HOPE WE GET THERE FIRST.

HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THEY WERE WORKING FOR THAT DARN CAT ?

[ Growls ]

HANG ON, MOWGLI. I’M COMING.

[ Mowgli ] THE LATER IT GOT, THE MORE I BEGAN TO SUSPECT...

THIS WASN’T JUST SOME MONKEY’S JOKE.

[ Grunting ]

I TRIED TO TAKE MY MIND OFF THINGS...

BY EXPLORING ALL THE TREASURES IN THE HUT.

AND THAT’S WHEN IT ALL CAME TOGETHER.

[ Growling ] SHERE KHAN !

LET ME OUT ! DON’T LEAVE ME HERE !

[ Raksha ] HOLD IT RIGHT THERE, SHERE KHAN.

RAKSHA. I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE UP TO.

AND YOU BETTER NOT LAY A PAW ON MY MOWGLI.

YOUR MOWGLI ?

HE WAS BORN A MAN. HIS PARENTS ARE HUNTERS.

HE’S MY SON, SHERE KHAN.

AND IF YOU WANT HIM, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH ME. [ Snarling ]

RELAX, MOTHER. I HAVEN’T HARMED A HAIR ON HIS HEAD... YET.

BUT I’M IN NO HURRY. HE AND I WILL MEET AGAIN...

ANOTHER TIME.

OVER MY DEAD BODY.

WITH PLEASURE !

[ Squawking ]

MOWGLI.

BAGHEERA !

HOW ARE YOU DOING ? ARE YOU OKAY ? SCARED BUT ALIVE.

YOU WON’T BE IF YOU DON’T ESCAPE BEFORE SHERE KHAN GETS HERE.

I’VE GOT AN IDEA. BE CAREFUL.

THOSE MONKEYS ARE CRAZY.

HA-HA. THAT’S WHAT I’M COUNTING ON.

UH-OH. HEY, HEADS UP. HUH ?

HI. CAN YOU HELP ME ?

I FOUND A MAP LEADING TO THE LOST LAND OF REALLY BIG BANANAS.

BUT I NEED SOMEONE WITH THUMBS TO UNFOLD IT.

EXCUSE ME. DID YOU SAY REALLY BIG BANANAS ?

BANANAS SO BIG, TWO ELEPHANTS CAN SLIP ON ONE PEEL.

[ Cheering ] THAT’S BIG !

LET’S GO. COME ON.

REALLY BIG BANANAS !

[ Baloo ] KIDS, DON’T TRY THIS...

AT HOME !

BALOO !

[ Groans ] NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL CRASHING A PARTY.

BOY, NEXT TIME I BUST THROUGH A HUT, REMIND ME TO COVER THE "BEAR" NECESSITIES.

[ Groans ] WHAT A DUMP !

COME ON, MOWG. LET’S MAKE TRACKS BEFORE SHERE KHAN MAKES US SNACKS.

COME ON, MOWGLI, KEEP RUNNIN’. WE’RE HOMEWARD BOUND.

THERE IT IS, FINALLY !

THAT STUPID HYENA AND HIS STUPID SHORTCUT !

MOWGLI !

COME OUT, COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE !

[ Shere Khan Sniffing ]

THAT’S IT ? SHOES ?

[ Panting ] BOSS ? OH, YOU MADE IT.

ABOUT THAT SHORTCUT--

WOW ! YOU ATE HIM ALREADY ?

[ Slurping ] WRONG AGAIN, YOU TRAVELING FLEA CIRCUS.

IF YOUR NOSE COULD SMELL AS MUCH AS YOU DO, YOU’D KNOW THE BLOATED BEAR WAS HERE, HE HELPED THE BOY ESCAPE.

WELL, UH, SHERE KHAN, HOW WAS YOUR MEAL ?

I’M STILL WAITING ON MY ENTREE, BUT PERHAPS I’LL HAVE AN APPETIZER. TELL ME.

HOW IS THE JUMBO CHIMP COCKTAIL ?

[ Growls ] [ Screeches ]

I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN RUN FASTER THAN SHERE KHAN.

I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO RUN FASTER THAN YOU.

[ Trumpets ]

[ Snoring ]

[ Hathi Trumpets ]

HATHI.

MOWGLI ? WAKE UP, MOWGLI.

HATHI, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE ?

I’M AFRAID SOMETHING’S H-HAPPENED.

WHAT ? WELL, IT’S... IT’S ABOUT YOUR MOTHER.

WHAT ABOUT MY MOTHER ?

UM, MOWGLI, JUST HOP UP AND COME WITH ME.

[ Bagheera ] COME ON, BALOO.

[ Mowgli ] AS I RODE ATOP HATHI, I REMEMBER FEELING THE JUNGLE WAS A COLDER, DIFFERENT PLACE.

I FELT IT IN MY HEART, AND THEN I SAW IT WITH MY EYES.

[ Growling ] GET AWAY FROM ME !

[ Mowgli ] THE PACK WAS FALLING APART. THERE WAS NO LEADERSHIP.

NO ORDER.

AND WHEN HATHI FINALLY BROUGHT ME HOME, I KNEW THE HORRIBLE REASON WHY.

OH, NO !

WHAT HAPPENED ?

SON, YOUR MOTHER AND SHERE KHAN--

[ Hathi ] MOWGLI ?

THE TIGER ATTACKED YOUR MOTHER.

SHE DIED... DEFENDING YOU.

DEFENDING... ME ?

DEAR FRIENDS, EVEN THOUGH MY BELOVED RAKSHA IS GONE FOREVER, HER SPIRIT WILL LIVE ON IN THIS LAND AND IN ALL OF US.

RAKSHA LOVED YOU AND YOUR SISTER, MOWGLI.

AND SHE WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU BOTH IN YOUR HEARTS.

[ Crying ]

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME ?

WHAT ARE THESE THINGS IN MY EYES ?

THEY’RE TEARS, MOWGLI.

WHY DO THEY HURT SO MUCH ?

[ Hathi ] WHY DO THEY HURT ?

TEARS ARE LIKE A RIVER FLOWING FROM A BROKEN HEART.

OH, MOWGLI. IT’S OKAY, MOWGLI.

IT’S OKAY. [ Crying ]

BROTHER.

MOWG, BUDDY, ARE YOU GONNA BE OKAY ?

MOWGLI, WHERE ARE YOU GOING ?

DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND ? THIS IS MY FAULT.

I’M LEAVING THE JUNGLE AND NEVER COMING BACK !

[ Trumpeting ]


MOWGLI ? MOWGLI ?

[ Mowgli ] I DON’T THINK I EVER RAN SO FAST OR SO FAR !

I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE I WAS GOING AND I DIDN’T CARE.

I JUST FIGURED, THE FARTHER I RAN, THE FARTHER I’D LEAVE MY TROUBLES BEHIND.

MOWGLI, WHERE ARE YOU ?

[ Mowgli ] AND SO I RAN AND RAN...

UNTIL I JUST COULDN’T RUN ANYMORE.

[ Crying ]

[ Mowgli ] AND THEN, SOMETHING HAPPENED.

I HAD DISCOVERED A PACK... OF MAN !

ALL KINDS OF MEMORIES WERE COMING BACK.

OF BEING A KID JUST LIKE THEM, AND LIVING IN A PLACE JUST LIKE THIS !

[ Boy ] OVER HERE.

AND EVEN THOUGH MY JUNGLE FAMILY TAUGHT ME TO FEAR MAN, I DIDN’T.

KICK IT. AND THEY DIDN’T SEEM TO FEAR ME EITHER.

[ Boy ] LIKE THAT.

COME ON.

[ Gasps ]

IF ANYTHING, I FELT WELCOME AND COMFORTABLE AND SAFE... COME PLAY !

LIKE THIS WAS... MY HOME.

[ Little Raksha Howling ] MOWGLI ?

THEN I HEARD LITTLE RAKSHA... [ Little Raksha ] MOWGLI, HELP ME.

CALLING FOR ME.

[ Howling ]

MY NEW HOME WOULD JUST HAVE TO WAIT.

LITTLE RAKSHA ?

[ Howling ]

SISTER !

MOWGLI, HELP ME GET LOOSE.

HOLD STILL. I’LL GET IT.

[ Grunting ]

THANKS. I’LL BE OKAY.

BUT YOU CAN’T LEAVE US !

I HAVE TO GO AWAY. I DON’T WANT TO CAUSE ANY MORE TROUBLE.

NO !

SHERE KHAN WILL HUNT YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.

WELL, THEN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

YES, YOU DO. YOU TOOK THE HUNTER’S OATH.

YOU MUST STAY AND FIGHT.

YOU’RE RIGHT. BALOO AND BAGHEERA ARE RIGHT.

RUNNING AWAY ISN’T THE ANSWER. I HAVE TO FACE SHERE KHAN AND BEAT HIM.

BUT NO WOLF HAS FACED THAT TIGER ALONE.

MOWGLI, A WOLF CAN ONLY FIGHT LIKE A WOLF.

BUT YOU CAN FIGHT SHERE KHAN LIKE A WOLF AND--

A MAN. A MAN ! I’VE GOT IT !

YEAH !

CALL THE JUNGLE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO MEET ME AT THE RIVER !

[ Howling ]

[ Howling ] [ Howling ]

WELL, WELL, TABAQUI. IT’S BEEN AN INTERESTING COUPLE OF DAYS.

I SET OUT TO KILL THE MAN CUB, WOUND UP KILLING HIS MOTHER.

WHICH DESTROYED THE WOLF PACK. UH-HUH, UH-HUH.

AND MADE THE MAN CUB RUN OFF AGAIN. NOW WE’RE GONNA GO FIND HIM.

YES. SOON I SHALL HAVE MY REVENGE, AND IT’LL BE THE ICING ON THE CAKE.

WHOO-HOO ! YA-YA-YA-YA-YA ! WOW ! I LOVE THIS JOB !

WAIT. DID YOU SAY REVENGE WAS ICING ?

I THOUGHT YOU SAID IT WAS ICE CREAM.

[ Mowgli ] SHERE KHAN ?

MOI ?

YEAH, YOU, YOU BIG, BENGAL BULLY.

IT’S ME, MOWGLI.

[ Shere Khan ] HOW ABOUT THAT ?

WE DIDN’T HAVE TO FIND THE ICING. IT FOUND US.

[ Tabaqui ] IT FOUND US ! WHOO ! THAT’S FUNNY ! WHOO !

OH, MAN CUB, I CAN’T HEAR YOU. SPEAK UP.

THE MORE YOU TALK, THE SOONER I FIND YOU AND THE SOONER I EAT.

[ Mowgli Imitating Bird Squawking ]

I’M UP HERE, SHERE KHAN. ALL BY MYSELF WITH NO PACK TO DEFEND ME.

MY, YOU’RE AWFULLY CHATTY ! AND HERE I WAS HOPING FOR A NICE QUIET MEAL.

YOU’LL NEVER CATCH ME !

HMM. MAYBE I’LL START WITH AN HORS D’OEUVRE OF LITTLE FROGS’ LEGS.

[ Squawking ]

DOWN HERE, FATSO. LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE SLOWING DOWN, TIGER.

[ Mowgli Laughs ] [ Growls ]

[ Mowgli ] WHAT’S THE MATTER, TOUGH GUY ?

GOT AN OLD BULLET IN YOUR BUTT ?

OKAY, MAN CUB, AT FIRST I WAS AMUSED, BUT NOW I’M GETTING ANGRY.

COME ON, BOY ! LET’S FINISH THIS !

THE RIVER !

WE’LL FINISH IT BY THE RIVER.

BOSS, HOLD ON ! WHAT IF IT’S A TRAP ?

A TRAP ? HA ! IDIOT !

NO TRAP CAN HOLD SHERE KHAN !

[ Growls ]

WHERE ARE YOU ?

[ Shere Khan ] SHOW YOURSELF !

NO WORRIES, BOSS. I’LL SNIFF HIM OUT. [ Sniffing ]

[ Tabaqui ] OOH, UH-OH.

I SMELL COMPANY.

COMPANY ? HMM.

[ Growling ]

HA ! WHY, IT’S JUST AN OVERSTUFFED BEAR !

AND AN UNDERFED PANTHER. [ Growls ]

HEE-HEE-HEE. WHY MUST WE ALWAYS TALK FOOD ?

GLAD YOU COULD MAKE THE PARTY, SHERE KHAN. IF IT ISN’T LITTLE RAKSHA.

TELL ME, HOW’S YOUR MOTHER ? STILL DEAD ?

YOU COLD, HEARTLESS, EVIL--

HEY, SNAGGLETOOTH !

SHERE KHAN, IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO PAY.

PAY ? I’M SORRY. DID YOU JUST SAY IT’S TIME FOR ME TO PAY ?

[ Shere Khan Laughing ] YOU RIDICULOUS LITTLE MAN CUB. DON’T YOU GET IT ?

THIS ISN’T YOUR MOMENT OF VENGEANCE, IT’S MINE !

AND ONCE I’M THROUGH WITH YOU, EVERYONE IN THE JUNGLE WILL KNOW...

THAT I, SHERE KHAN, RULE ALL !

AND THAT I ANSWER TO NO MAN.

COME. LOOK INTO MY EYES, BOY, JUST LIKE YOUR MOTHER DID.

IT WAS THE VERY LAST THING SHE SAW !

DIE !

[ Quiet Growling ]

NO ! I KNOW THAT TRICK. I’M NOT PUTTING MYSELF UNDER YOUR POWER.

VERY GOOD, MOWGLI.

I MAY BE SMALL, I MAY BE WITHOUT CLAWS OR WINGS, OR A BIG MOUTH LIKE YOU !

BUT I AM NOT WITHOUT MY POWER, SHERE KHAN !

[ Laughing ] WHAT POWER ? THAT LITTLE STICK ?

[ Gasps ] THE RED FLOWER !

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?

[ Quiet Growl ]

[ Howling ]

OH, GENIUS !

YIPES !

WOW ! ALL RIGHT, BRO !

NOW YOU LOOK INTO MY EYES, TIGER !

WHO NEEDS FANGS AND FUR WHEN YOU’VE GOT FIRE ?

YEAH ! HE’S BAD !

HMM.

BRILLIANT ! [ Growls ]

WATCH OUT FOR THE FIRE, SHERE KHAN.

I HEAR IT LIKES FUR.

I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE.

TABAQUI, HELP !

BOSS, I-- HI, KID. I WOULD LOVE TO.

[ Tabaqui ] BUT LOOK AT ALL THE RED FLOWER.

THERE’S A WHOLE BOUQUET OF IT ! CAN I QUIT ? I QUIT.

ET TU, TUBACUS ?

EH, MOWGLI ?

SIR, YOU KNOW, NO KING OF THE JUNGLE’S COMPLETE...

WITHOUT HIS VERY OWN BUTT-KISSING SIDEKICK.

[ Hisses ]

AAH ! OKAY. NICE CHATTIN’ WITH YOU. BYE-BYE.

WHAT’S THE MATTER, SHERE KHAN ?

SHOULDN’T YOU BE ROARING AND BOASTING RIGHT NOW ?

IS IT COLD OUT, SHERE KHAN ?

[ Growls ]

YOU SEEM TO BE SHIVERING.

ENOUGH ! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ? JUST KILL ME !

SORRY, TIGER. YOU’RE NOT GETTING OFF SO EASILY.

MOWGLI, WHAT WILL YOU DO TO ME ?

I’M TAKING YOUR JUNGLE AWAY. YOU ARE BANISHED FROM THIS LAND.

YOU CAN’T HUNT OR EVEN SET FOOT HERE AGAIN.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME, SHERE KHAN ?

YES.

GOOD. THEN SAY IT, SWEAR IT. PROMISE IT TO EVERYONE HERE !

OKAY ! I PROMISE I’LL NEVER RETURN.

YOU ALL HEARD HIM SAY IT.

AND IF YOU BREAK YOUR WORD, SHERE KHAN--

OOH ! THAT’S ME ?

THAT’S RIGHT !

[ Gasps ]

NOW, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ?

YES, MOWGLI, YES. THEN YOU MAY GO.

[ Together ] SO LONG, FRAIDY CAT. [ Laughing ]

I WAS BEHIND THAT KID ALL THE WAY.

AW, YEAH, SO WAS I ! YEAH, RIGHT !

LITTLE BROTHER, I’M SO PROUD OF YOU.

I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT.

LISTEN, MAN CUB, WE’RE SORRY.

WE WERE WRONG ABOUT YOU.

NO WOLF HAS EVER FACED SHERE KHAN LIKE THAT !

[ Wolf ] YEAH. YOU SHOULD BE OUR PACK LEADER.

I APPRECIATE THAT, GUYS. BUT I’M NOT A WOLF. I’M A MAN.

AND I’VE GOT TO DISCOVER WHAT THAT MEANS.

I THINK MY SISTER DESERVES TO BE THE NEW LEADER OF THE CIONI WOLVES.

THANKS. I’LL DO MY BEST.

MOM WOULD BE SO PROUD.

YOU DESERVE IT, SIS.

[ Chuckles ] LOOKS LIKE WE TAUGHT HIM WELL, BALOO.

YEP. OUR MAN CUB’S ALL GROWN UP.

[ Howling ] [ Howling ]

[ Trumpeting ]

[ Laughing ]

[ Mowgli ] AND YOU KNOW WHAT ? THEY WERE RIGHT.

I DIDN’T FEEL LIKE A MAN CUB ANYMORE.

I JUST FELT LIKE... A MAN.

SO... WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS IS ANYWAY ?

I ONCE SAW A MAN WITH ONE OF THOSE.

I THINK THEY USE IT TO KEEP TRACK OF THEIR DREAMS OR THEIR MEMORIES. THEY CALL IT A BOOK.

A BOOK ? WOW !

MONKEYS. PANTHERS. ELEPHANTS.

HEY ! MUST BE SOME KIND OF JUNGLE BOOK, HUH ?

I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR WHAT IT SAYS.

[ Baloo ] HEY ! MOWG !

CATCH YOU LATER, PAL.

SAFE JOURNEY, MOWGLI. SEE YA AROUND.

[ Mowgli ] SO THAT’S IT REALLY. THAT’S MY STORY.

AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING ?

EVEN NOW I TAKE THAT BOOK WHEREVER I GO.

AND EVERY TIME I OPEN IT, I DISCOVER A NEW ADVENTURE.
