Disney’s The Jungle Book looks like it’s going to be one of those star-studded movies that has everybody and their cousin’s uncle’s babysitter in it.
The film, a combination of live-action and CGI animation directed by Jon Favreau, has already managed to secure
bae Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, and now Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad).
Walken will voice King Louie and try to fill the shoes of the legendary Louis Prima (I’m a fan), and Esposito will lend his voice to wolf pack leader Akela.
Can we talk about how awesome a year it’s been for Lupita though? First, she’s tapped to join Star Wars: Episode VII, and now this. Yassssss!
