Jungle Book Monday
Today, Daveland celebrates the upcoming release tomorrow of Disney's "The Jungle Book" for the first time on Blu-ray.
Starting the festivities off with a Concept Art Slideshow:
A few photos from Disney featuring Floyd Norman, one of the animators who worked on "The Jungle Book." Here's one of Floyd in the 1950's:
On the "Zorro" set at the Burbank Studio:
Standing by the famous signpost at the Walt Disney Studio lot in Burbank:
While we're at it, here is an overall vintage shot of the Studio:
And one of Walt, also posed by the signpost:
Last one from this set is a contemporary shot of Floyd, who continues to work for the Walt Disney Compay as a freelance consultant on various projects:
A few more clips from the Diamond Edition:
It's somewhat amazing that with an area called Adventureland that the powers-that-be at Disney haven't put anything from this movie at the park. Maybe they are too afraid to touch the classic Jungle Cruise; or maybe they feel that a few appearances by Baloo around the resort are enough.
Are you humming, "I Wanna' Be Like You" yet?
