Actor-director Andy Serkis believes cinema is losing its charm with the increasing popularity of streaming services. With the influx of technology and its failure of incorporation in cinema, the future of movies lies at stake.
The film follows Mowgli, who is raised by a pack of wolves as he follows the rules of the jungle. Andy Serkis' voice stars as the fun-loving bear, Baloo and Christian Bale lends his voice to the sombre panther, Bagheera - the man cub's friends.
Andy Serkis is, by far, the best-known name in motion-capture. LOTR was just the beginning. After that, Serkis might have wanted to do more regular sort of acting, but he was born (or shall we say, doomed?) to portray make-believe characters.
War for the Planet of the Apes is not only a great film, it is also a pinnacle in motion-capture technology and if War for the Planet of the Apes does not deserve the Oscar for VFX, I do not know which film does.
The team of Netflix's Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, including Christian Bale, Andy Serkis, Rohan Chand, Jackie Shroff and Frieda Pinto, spoke about the adaptation and discussed the relevance of the film in today's time.
