** Pretty much true to the book despite the adaptational sex change.


** Benedict Cumberbatch is very clearly channeling his performance as [[Film/TheDesolationOfSmaug Smaug]] in Shere Khan, making him seem less like a wounded tiger and more like an ''evil yokai.''

* Lockwood's collection of trophies is already [[TaxidermyIsCreepy unsettling]], but the cherry on the cake is [[spoiler:Bhoot's taxidermied head]]. Not only does just it come just about out of nowhere, it's still ''smiling!''

The first trailer does its job to cement that this film ''isnít'' going to to take the LighterAndSofter approach that most other adaptations have done to the story.

* Baloo is a huge bear with a scarred, partly bald face and yellow eyes that give him a terrifying look that falls into the UncannyValley. Add to this the fact that he has a deep, grating voice and a [[GoodIsNotNice harsh personality]], and you get as far from the BearyFriendly Disney character as possible...

Only mitigated that he still very clearly [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold has a heart of gold]] [[KnightInSourArmor underneath that hardened exterior]].


* Lockwood is so focused on getting a shot at Shere Khan he doesn't even notice [[spoiler:Hathi, a huge, angry elephant, approaching to get revenge]]. Even worse, that's TruthInTelevision... They really can be that stealthy and quiet. And of course [[spoiler:they never forget]]--

* In the first scene we are shown Mowgli imprisoned by humans and being horribly treated. Bagheera recalls similar mistreatment from his youth.

* Once again, Kaa manages to be pretty intimidating, even if they are going for her as a good guy this time around; when we first see her in the trailer she has Mowgli caught in her coils and seems to be toying with him a little, a spooky little reminder of how powerful she is compared to him and how delicate he is compared to her. What's more, even ''Shere Khan'' is [[HorrifyingTheHorror afraid of her]], to the point of leaving Mowgli be just because the python ordered him to.
