By Antoinette Bueno
Forget any cute version of Disney's 1967 animated classic The Jungle Book you know -- because director Jon Favreau's new take on the film is pretty terrifying.
The first trailer for the live-action The Jungle Bookdebuted on Tuesday, and is narrated by Scarlett Johansson, who plays the seductive and scary python Kaa. The film's plot, of course, follows Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who's been raised by a family of wolves. Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle, however, when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba), sees him as a threat.
