Lupita is up for the role of Rakcha, a mama wolf who adopts Mowgli. We hope she gets it!
ScarJo is being considered to voice the sneakiest of serpents Kaa who uses hypnotism to eat its prey! Well, Ssssssscarlett already has a a hypnotic voice, so she's such a perfect fit.
As of right now Idris Elba is voicing the ever menacing tiger (that since our childhood still haunts…or, shall we say, hunts our dreams) Shere Khan.
Rudyard Kipling would totally approve of this potential casting!
