In this delightful animated feature, Norman has the ability to speak with the dead—and he often prefers their company to that of the living. When his strange Uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman) tells him that a centuries-old witch's curse on their town is real, Norman must summon all his courage and push his paranormal abilities to the limit to save everyone.

Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film!

In this reimagining of the classic collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling, director Jon Favreau uses visually stunning CGI to create the community of animals surrounding Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a human boy adopted by a pack of wolves. The appearance of a villainous tiger named Shere Khan (voiced byIdris Elba) forces Mowgli's guardian, the panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), to shepherd the child to safety in the "man village." Along the way, the boy meets an affable, lazy bear named Baloo (Bill Murray), as well as a snake with hypnotic powers (Scarlett Johansson) and an orangutan (Christopher Walken) who wants to harness the power of fire. Lupita Nyong'o, Giancarlo Esposito, and Garry Shandling also lend their voices to this adventure tale. Author: Tom Ciampoli
