* AngstWhatAngst: Despite pining for the jungle for so long, Mowgli does not even make so much as a passing mention of his wolf family.

* AngstWhatAngst: Despite pining for the jungle for so long, Mowgli does not even make so much as a passing mention of his wolf family. Come to think of it, [[AbsenteeActor they never even show up at all]].

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Every scene with Shere Khan in it is made a million times better due to massively raising the tension. It easily makes him the most memorable part of the film. Being [[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin reprised by]] Creator/TonyJay certainly helps.


* JustHereForGodzilla: A lot of people just watch the film for the scenes in the man village, which was never shown in detail in the original, and the epic confrontation with Shere Khan at the end. The rest of the movie is so-so.

* CantUnhearIt: Thanks to the voice acting choices, it's hard to unhear [[Creator/HaleyJoelOsment Mowgli]] as [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Sora]], [[Creator/MaeWhitman Shanti]] as [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Katara]], [[Creator/JohnGoodman Baloo]] as [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Sulley]] (bonus points for having a scene where he scares someone), [[Creator/TonyJay Shere Khan]] as [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Frollo]], etc.

** Sure, Kaa gets a bad rep around here for his horrendously decayed personality and role in the story, but he ''was'' legitimately threatening in the original movie. In ''The Jungle Book 2''? [[ButtMonkey Not so much.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Sequelitis}}: The film is universally considered to be inferior to the original film, due in part to its story being a [[SamePlotSequel blatant, watered down rehash of the first]] and for undoing Mowgli's CharacterDevelopment from the original.


* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: For all its flaws, this movie ''looks'' great. While the character animation never quite reaches the level of the original movie, the effects and use of color are a lot more vibrant and impressive, and the backgrounds reach SceneryPorn level. The jungle looks more lush and beautiful than ever before.
