Growing up I did not have a lot of movies, but we certainly had our family collection of Disney classics. Out of all of those classics there is one movie that really sticks out to me and that is the Jungle Book. Most of the Disney movies in my day featured princesses, which is great and all, but my favorites were Aladdin, Robin Hood and the Jungle Book because the main characters were male and I could pretend to be them.
This month Disney released The Jungle Book: Diamond Edition Blu-ray. The glorious digital high definition really brings the characters to life. The Diamond edition is now sold at retailers nationwide and I would highly recommend reconnecting with Mowgli and his big teddy bear Baloo by adding this family classic to your collection.
Enjoy this Bare Necessities trailer clip from the movie below, and grab these fun The Jungle Book printable activity sheets for the kids.

This is definitely a classic! My grandsons have never seen this before but I think they would love it! I may have to add this to their Easter basket this year!
I love collecting Disney classics including this. It brings back my childhood 🙂

When I saw the title of this post, I immediately started humming “The Bare Necessities.” This really is a classic – I am going to have to get it for my boys.

I haven’t seen this movie in years. I’ll have to get it for my kids, so I can enjoy along with them.
Oh this has always been one of my favorties! Carter is just getting to the age to sit down and watch movies!
One of my favorite movies of all time. Thanks for the printables.
I remember seeing the original Jungle Book many, many moons ago, My grandkids have never seen this movie. I would love to get it for them as it is such a classic.
My grandmother passed away when I was seven years old. Every once in a while she would send me gifts in the mail for no reason (she lived in Michigan, I lived in Florida)- one of my favorite of these was a VHS copy of “The Jungle Book”. I watched it so many times! Seeing this post brought back a lot of memories. I love you, Grandma Klemmer!
Oh I loved this movie so much and I haven’t seen it in ages.
