After a long, bumpy journey, ‘Mowgli’ settles in at Netflix

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor and director Andy Serkis says he was shocked when he found out Warner Bros. was considering selling his big budget “The Jungle Book” adaptation to Netflix.

But Serkis says he realized soon that it was the best outcome for his film, which is a darker rendering of Rudyard Kipling’s tales than the popular Disney versions. This way, “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” will be available to 117 million subscribers worldwide immediately.

“Mowgli” hits Netflix on Friday.
