I suppose in terms of perception, there was a shadow cast to a certain degree, in terms of the commercial aspect. I think [Warner Bros] took the brunt, the big fear of 'how can we compete with that', but in terms of the creativity, I just didn't waver. Despite production for Mowgli beginning before its rival, it has launched on Netflix a full 30 months after Disney's version, which Serkis did watch when it was released in cinemas.During a float down the river, Mowgli is kidnapped by a group of monkeys , and is taken to their leader an orangutan named King Louie.
