Since I'm rushing to type, I'll update with pics after the fact. This is notable as last film that Walt Disney and Verna Felton worked on before their deaths. 1. Overall Impression, After the 2 1/2 hour length of Mary Poppins, I feel this is a little more time manageable and contained. The music feels more exotic,and much of the much of the setting is seemingly reminiscent of disneyland's adventureland (jungle cruise anyone?). While certain aspects of it are effectively reused with the xerox process, it still feels fresh. Many of the voice actors are recognizable Disney legends; one who might sound familiar, Bruce Reitheimer whose brothers also filled in for the voice of Arthur in Sword in the Stone, alone voices Mowgli and later Christopher Robin. Ironically this week I was listening to a npr snippet about intrinsic bias, and how it portrays on race in America and the rest of the world. I feel that the many of the preducial aspects of this film also take on how they present each of the animals throughout the film itself takes place in India. For instance much of the upper hierarchy of animals such as Bagheera and Shere Khan seem to have a British accent while those with a much lower standing Such as Mowgli and Baloo have a standard American or even a Stereotypical African American like accent such as the monkeys and King Louie. 4. Song Analysis The vultures song is probably unique about they want to be close friend with Mowgli. It's sorta an inversion of how they are normally portrayed as heartless scavengers, instead trying to give another sense as close friends till the very end... 7. Film Meaning Much like like the colonial aspect of the book, the movie intrinsically implies that it might be is best to stay with your own kind or race. Even though this takes place during the civil rights era, it is sadly implied it as Mowgli is given an American accent is given to the boy and that much of the other protagonists are a dark or black color. This isn't anything new from that time period, Rodgers and Hammersteins South Pacific also deals with this issue when it is implied that the two romantic love interest are best to stay apart because they are from different backgrounds/races. 8. Progressions While much of the films after this would continue to use this as a base, the xerox process does wonders what they can reuse from previous films. For instance, Wart/Mowgli being hounded by the dogs. 9. Iconic Scene Much of the background scenery is lush and gorgeous like the waterfall and the moonlite water scene so I like the background of Mowgli walking next to the waterfall.
