Review: The Jungle Book

Sophie Gilliland, Opinion Editor

April 21, 2016

Everybody loves a classic, but with all the remakes and sequels being done it’s hard to appreciate a flash to the past. The Jungle Book was one of these remakes and I didn’t think it would be that good. I hadn’t watched the cartoon Jungle Book since I was little (I think we still have it on VH...
