  • Who are Nisha and Vihaan? No characters named like that appear in any of the Kipling stories, nor in any adaptation so far.
  • Is Lockwood intended to be John Lockwood Kipling? He's only ever referred to as "Lockwood", and he seems to be killed by Hathi at a much younger age than his real-life counterpart died. But if he's intended to be a completely different person, why the name?
    • Either a Shout-Out or Mythology Gag presumably, if he was meant to actually be Kipling then he'd be actually called Kipling.
  • Why is Shere Khan so hellbent on killing Mowgli?
    • His pride got hurt and he took personal grudge towards Akela and the wolf pack for not allowing him to kill Mowgli. By killing Mowgli, he proves he's the lord of the jungle who kills wherever he pleases, even if it takes many years.
