HISTORY
The Walt Disney Company started in 1923 in the rear of a small office
occupied by Holly-Vermont Realty in Los Angeles. It was there that Walt
Disney, and his brother Roy, produced a series of short liveaction/animated films collectively called the ALICE COMEDIES.
In 1937, Disney's innovative first full length animated feature, SNOW
WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, was released to critical acclaim and
worldwide success.
Beginning in the late 1940s, Disney launched into the production of liveaction features and television programs. The Studio lot was subsequently
expanded during the 1950s, to include sound stages and production craft
facilities.

ANALYSIS- KEY POINTS


From the 1967 to the 2016 version the domestic total gross jumped from
$73,741,048 to $364,001,123

It made this jump due to it being live action rather than animation, it had a lot more
special effects, the rating was more geared for various age ranges rather than just little
kids, etc.
Although the 1967 version was released in a more popular month, the 2016 version
outweighed this factor with the reasons provided above.

OWNERSHIP
Director: Jon Favreau
Producer: Brigham Taylor
Disney is one of the big six film studios, but has many smaller
broadcasting networks

shareholders. The Laurene Powell Jobs Trust, run by Steve Jobs' widow, is
the largest stockholder, owning 7.27 percent of the shares.

PRODUCTION

AUDIENCE
Appealing elements
Live action
Remake of classic film to appeal to the audience
Fantasy Genre
CG animated animals
Animals are able to communicate with a human which in real life would
never occur.

MARKETING & ANALYSIS


Camera shots and angles help to
show the technological
advancement
These shots also introduce the
characters and mainly reintroduce
Mowgli
Scarlett Johansson makes for a
great narrator as her voice is very
soothing which is another reason
why she was chosen to play Kaa

SYNERGY
Fantasound was part of the Jungle Book movie process. They were in
charge of the music and sound effects.
The song Bare Necessities attracts to children but to other ages who may
have seen the original movie as this song resonates with the movie and is
one of the selling points of the movie.

POSTERS

ANALYSIS KEY POINTS


Lighting
The lighting within the picture is very bright in the background. This is so that the
light acts as the sun shining threw the trees. This lighting is effective because it
makes the image realistic to how a jungle may actually look
Colors
The poster uses a variety of different colors across the page. The color green is the
main color used so that it represents where the film is set. The color green its self
represents nature and calmness, emphasizing the storyline. Other bold/dark colors
are used on every animals fur/skin. This emphasizes that animals are unpredictable
therefore adds mystery to the poster. However the bold colors on each animal
could also indicate that they are wise. The color yellow connotes brightness and
happiness. This is important that the audience feel these emotions from the poster
especially as it is a children's film, therefore making the poster intriguing and of a
happy nature for children, will make them want to go see the film.

ANALYSIS KEY POINTS CONT.


Imagery
From the poster we can see that the young boy is the main focus of the film. This is
because he is positioned against large jungle animals therefore his petite size and bright
red shorts make him stand out from the page. The young boy is shown with his hand on
the bear, while the bear looks like it is ready to attack/being protective.This symbolizes
trust therefore suggests to the audience that the young boy has a special connection to
the animals shown. In the background, we can see the silhouette of a black cat, with
bright green beady eyes looking directly at the camera.When cats are startled, they look
directly at the source that has put them on high alert.
Text and language
Within the poster there is little text that helps identify the poster.However the text that
is used shows a list of famous actors who voice over each of the animated characters.
This is effective because each actor has their own set of fans therefore will take a
interest to any film that actor plays a role in.However, once all of these famous actors
come together the film will gain lots of popularity therefore become a success.
