Disney XD Acquires DQE’s Jungle Book

Disney has recently picked up the US broadcast rights for DQ Entertainment’s 3D Animated take on The Jungle Book. The 26 x 22 series is scheduled to debut on June 11 on Disney XD, which aims to bring the updated classic to more than 78 million households all over the world.

Aimed at kids aged 6 to 9, The Jungle Book series is based on the classic story by English author Rudyard Kipling, which follows the man-cub Mowgli, who was raised in the jungle by Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera, and Kaa, as they take on the evil Shere Khan.

Disney has previously adapted The Jungle Book, albeit using 2D Animation.

“Mowgli and his friends have found their rightful home and we are confident that they will continue to enthrall audiences in their new CGI avatars,” said Tapaas Chakravarti, chairman and CEO of DQE.”

The TV, home video, and merchandising rights for DQE’s The Jungle Book is currently owned by SMC Entertainment, a division of Sun-Mate, as per an earlier agreement with DQE.
