The Jungle Book 2016 movie quotes bring the classic children's book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling back to the big screen for a feature film. Adapted into a screenplay by Justin Marks, Jon Favreau directed the fantasy adventure film in a new live action/CGI version. The Jungle Book opened in theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.

In The Jungle Book, human boy Mowgli (Neel Sethi) was raised in the jungle, a place humans are generally not allowed, by a pair of wolves (voiced by Lupita Nyong'o and Giancarlo Esposito) and black panther Bagheera (voiced by Ben Kingsley). It wasn't the most conventional arrangement, but it worked for just about everyone.

So when tiger Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) learns that Mowgli is living in the jungle, Shere Khan vows to hunt and kill the boy. This leads Mowgli to leave the jungle in search of his place in this world. Along the way, he meets a number of allies, including bear Baloo (voiced by Bill Murray), and many who don't exactly have his best interests in mind, including Kaa (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) and orangutan King Louie (voiced by Christopher Walken).

The Jungle Book brings some family fun to theaters already showing films such as Demolition, The Boss, Hardcore Henry, Meet the Blacks, and Everybody Wants Some!!.

Akela: Mowgli belongs to my pack, Shere Khan.
Shere Khan: Mowgli! They've given it a name! When was it we come to adopt man into jungle?
Akela: He's just a cub.
Shere Khan: Does my face not remind you of what grown man can do? You move your hunting around for a few years, and everyone forgets how the law works. Well, let me remind you. A man-cub becomes a man and man is forbidden!

Shere Khan is flabbergasted at the fact that the jungle animals have allowed a human into their ranks and even given him a name. According to Shere Khan, this is absolutely forbidden and something that he personally intends to correct.
