However, Disney put the flap in his moment, defeating Serkis The Jungle Book adaptation with director Jon Favreau 2016. Movgli – and its most recent 3D version – at some point in time.
As director Serkis expresses the migration of theater-netflix:
"I'm really excited about Netflik Movgli. Now we're avoiding comparing it with another movie, and it's a relief to not press it. I've seen a 3D version, which is an extraordinary, different view from version 2D, really lush and great depth, and for this will be some kind of theater component. What excites me most is Netflik's thinking about how to present and message the film. They realize this is a darker story that does not fit into the four quadrants. "
Maybe he admits it Movgli was not foreseen for success in the box office at the family base, the state of Serkis film:
"It's really not intended for young children, although I think it's possible to watch 10 or more of them. It should always have been PG-13, which allows us to go deeper, with darker topics, at a time scary and terrifying. The animal is not pointless, but it definitely exists. This way of leaving allows us to make a film without compromise. "

"It has a blockbuster scale, but it's somewhere between Life Pi and one Apes Movie. It has this reality, just like it is Okay had. We are talking about 2019 and circular dates. Netflik allowed the film I wanted to do, to exist and create an atmosphere for me what kind of story I was talking about. "
