Netflix and Andy Serkis' Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is a much more accurate adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book than Disney's. The Jungle Book is a American fantasy adventure film, directed by Jon Favreau from a screenplay by The Jungle Book 2 and inspired by Disney's classic animated film, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about. That film, a high-tech remake of the studio's “The Jungle Book,” about an orphaned Indian boy, Mowgli, who is raised by wolves.
Kitty and Dr. Julius Plumford, a good friend of Brydon's, decide that they must reintroduce Mowgli to civilization.
The Jungle Book
In doing so, Mowgli and Kitty fall in love, much to Boone's displeasure. Eventually, Boone convinces Mowgli to tell him of Monkey City and the treasure hoard that it holds, but Mowgli refrains from revealing its location to Boone upon realizing his lack of respect for the jungle.
Boone later proposes to Kitty, although she is hesitant to concede.
Around this time, after Boone and his men publicly humiliate him, Mowgli returns to the jungle as he does not feel at home in the village. After Boone's cruel treatment of Mowgli, Kitty realizes she cannot marry Boone, so she decides to go back to England to get away from him.
They recruit a jungle guide, Tabaqui, and gather some bandits to capture Mowgli in order to find out where the treasure is. Wilkins and Boone shoot Baloo when he comes to Mowgli's defense, much to Mowgli's distress. Buldeo and the bandits then ambush Kitty and Brydon, who is shot and wounded in the process.
Even though Mowgli, along with Bagheera, Grey Brother, and the rest of the wolves, attack and kill most of the bandits, Buldeo manages to capture Kitty and Brydon and hands them over to Boone and his men, who plan to use them as blackmail: If Mowgli leads them to the treasure, Kitty and her father shall live. That night, the group learn Shere Khan is hunting them due to their shooting of Baloo.
Because of this, Mowgli decides to escape.

As the group make progress, Tabaqui decides that Mowgli is no longer needed and tries to murder him, only to be killed himself after toppling off a cliff.
Later, Wilkins becomes separated from the group and is mauled to death by Shere Khan. Eventually, the remaining party enters Monkey City, where Buldeo inadvertently entombs himself in a trap while trying to shoot Mowgli.
Only Mowgli, Kitty and Boone reach the treasure room, where Mowgli and Boone engage in a fierce fight until Mowgli injures Boone with another dagger. Mowgli then escapes with Kitty, while Boone begins greedily pocketing treasure, only for King Louie to summon Kaa, who proceeds to attack and kill Boone. However, Mowgli roars back, leading Shere Khan to become impressed at his bravery, acknowledge him as a creature of the jungle, and allow Mowgli and Kitty to leave peacefully.

In both Netflix's Mowgli and Kipling's book, the Law of the Jungle states two non-related animals must take responsibility for the man-cub, and that's what Baloo and Bagheera do. While Netflix's movie is obviously centered on Mowgli's story, it takes time to flesh out all the other characters in his life - which is something Disney's Jungle Book never does.
For instance, Bagheera's story about being raised in a cage in the King's Palace is told in Netflix's Mowgli but is completely ignored in Disney and Favreau's Jungle Book. For Baloo, sure it's nice to hear him teach Mowgli about the "Bare Necessities" in life, but that's not as important as the Law of the Jungle, as it's responsible for everything that happens in Kipling's Jungle Book novels.
Plus, Baloo's relationship with Mowgli in Netflix's movie is much more accurate overall, seeing as Baloo takes responsibility for everything that Mowgli goes through. In Kipling's books, as well as the Jungle Book movies including Mowgli , Shere Khan is accurately portrayed, for the most part, though Mowgli differs from Disney's movie in that it includes a jackal named Tabaqui, who's Shere Khan's sidekick. Sherman wrote songs for Disney's original animated Jungle Book , originally was going to write new songs for this film, but in the end, the director decided to not exactly make the film a musical, however, Richard revised some new lyrics for the song "I Wanna Be Like You" performed by Christopher Walken, and " The Bare Necessities " has been recycled from the original and sung by Bill Murray.

The wolves have a larger role in this movie.Following suggestions, Peet also created the character of Louie, king of the monkeys. Bagheera and Mowgli get separated after Shere Khan attacks them, as opposed to Bagheera leaving Mowgli behind due to arguments.
Lee was also cast because the animals reacted to him the best.

That actually happens in Kipling's book, though only to an extent. They did so in the animated film. The monkeys don't kidnap Mowgli while he's riding Baloo.
