The Jungle Book (1994) - (Jason Scott Lee) US one-sheet
This is a 27" x 40" US folded double-sided one-sheet for the 1994 Stephen Sommers film The Jungle Book very loosely based on the Rudyard Kipling book with screenplay by Stephen Sommers, Ronald Yanover and Mark Geldman and starring Jason Scott Lee as Mowgli. The story in this non-animated film is a huge departure from all previous film versions of The Jungle Book, for starters in the complete absence of any idea that Mowgli is raised from infancy by animals, and then in the much more extensive development of Mowgli's relationship with Kitty, the girl he knew as a child before joining the animals. Plot summary: Instead of being found and taken to a wolf pack by the black panther Bagheera as an infant, at the age of five Mowgli [Sean Naegeli] wanders away from a group of people in the jungle. Here is where Bagheera finds him with his pet wolf pup, Grey Brother, and takes him to the wolf pack. Years later when Mowgli has become a man he has another encounter with the same group of people, where he finds Kitty [Lena Headey] again and falls in love with her. The romance does not go well at this point, and after learning to dance and speak English Mowgli decides to return to the jungle because he is more at home there. He is pursued by a group interested in getting information from him about a lost jungle city and its treasure. In the ensuing conflict Mowgli prevails with the help of his animal friends, is reunited with Kitty and becomes lord of the jungle.
