The Jungle Book

Revealing mistake: In several scenes, it is obvious that the animal actor playing Bagheera is actually a black jaguar. For example, the jaguar is larger and heavier than the leopard/panther. The scene where Bagheera tackles a poacher, he is much to large and heavy to be a leopard/panther.

Revealing mistake: When Mowgli is on the burning wagon, as it's being pulled away from camp, you can tell that in certain shots it's really a stunt double and not Mowgli at all.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film, the character Buddhail is shot in the leg. A few scenes later, while he is walking through Monkey City, he is limping on the wrong leg.


Trivia: In the movie, Baloo is represented by a black bear. While bears do exist in India, black bears are indigenous to the North American continent.


Mowgli: The more I learn what is a man, the more I want to be an animal.

Mowgli: The jungle speaks to me because I have learned how to listen.
