The Jungle Book 2

The Jungle Book 2

The Jungle Book 2 is a 2003 animated feature film produced by the DisneyToons studio in Sydney and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution. The theatrical version of the film was released in France on February 5, 2003, and released in the United States on February 14, 2003. The film is a sequel to Walt Disney's 1967 film The Jungle Book, and stars Haley Joel Osment as the voice of Mowgli and John Goodman as the voice of Baloo. The film was originally produced as a direct-to-video film, but was released theatrically first, similar to the Peter Pan sequel, Return to Never Land. It is the third Disney sequel to have a theatrical release rather than going direct-to-video after The Rescuers Down Under in 1990 and Return to Neverland in 2002. The film is not based on The Second Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, first published in 1895. However, they do have several characters in common. When released, it was criticised mainly for its cut-rate animation and a lazy, samey plotline to the original film. Disney released the VHS and DVD versions on June 10, 2003. On June 17, 2008, a Special Edition DVD was released.

[Mowgli finds Shanti and Ranjan, both of whom look scared by something]

Mowgli:
There you are! I'm so sorry. Will you let me explain?

[Shanti backs away in fear]

Mowgli:
Come on! At least talk to me.

[Shanti nervously points at something behind Mowgli; he turns around and gasps when he sees Shere Khan lurking in the shadows, he approaches the children]

Shere Khan:
You seem surprised to see me, man-cub. I can't imagine why. I wasn't going to let you get away with what you did to me. You see, you humiliated me, man-cub. Surely you do realize I simply can't let you live.

[Shanti, Mowgli, and Ranjan are now terrified]

Mowgli:
[to Shanti and Ranjan] Run!

[Shanti and Ranjan flee the area. Mowgli turns to face Shere Khan and throws dust in his face before running for it]

Shere Khan:
Oh, you're going to try and outrun me. How droll!

Mowgli:
[catches up with Shanti and Ranjan] Come on! This way! [Behind them, Shere Khan gives chase with a snarl; Mowgli, Shanti, and Ranjan climb over a log to some bushes] All right. Stay here!

Shanti:
Mowgli, no! [Shere Khan leaps over the log with a roar; Shanti and Ranjan hide in the bushes] Ranjan, wait here. I gotta go help Mowgli!

Ranjan:
But I wanna help Mowgli too!

Shanti:
No! I'll be right back. I promise. Don't move. [Shanti goes after Mowgli. Ranjan is still determined to help, and gets his loincloth caught on a branch; he is thrown backwards and comes face-to-face with Baloo. He panics and tries to run. Baloo picks him up by the loincloth.]

Baloo:
Whoa, whoa. Hold still. Calm down, kid. Now, where's Mowgli?

Ranjan:
Shere Khan!

Baloo:
[shocked] Shere Khan? Hold on! [puts Ranjan on his shoulders and hurries to the rescue. Meanwhile, Mowgli is still running as fast as he can, but stops when he comes to a lava lake surrounding an ancient temple.]

Mowgli:
Whoa! [Mowgli looks at the lava nervously and looks back when he hears Shere Khan roar behind him; he jumps across and barely grabs onto the other side. He looks back just in time to see Shere Khan appear and quickly climbs up and races up the stairs. Shere Khan gets across with an effortless running jump. Mowgli enters the temple looking for a place to hide.]

Shere Khan:
[laughing evilly] No matter how fast you can run, no matter where you can hide, I will catch you. [Shere Khan climbs up the stairs as Mowgli hides behind a gong, hyperventilating.] Come out, come out, wherever you are. [In the jungle, Bagheera climbs down from a tree branch and hears Ranjan's voice]

Ranjan:
Hurry! Hurry! Faster, faster! [Bagheera sees Ranjan]

Bagheera:
Oh, no! Not another Man-cub!

Ranjan:
Can't you go any faster? [Bagheera then sees that Ranjan is riding on Baloo's shoulders]

Bagheera:
[gasps and races alongside him] Baloo! What is the meaning of this?!

Baloo:
Mowgli's in trouble!

Ranjan:
And Shanti, too!

Bagheera:
Who's Shanti? [Meanwhile, Shanti has just reached the temple and leaps across the lava before hurrying inside. She reacts with horror upon seeing Shere Khan looking around for Mowgli. She desperately looks for a place to hide. Baloo, Ranjan, and Bagheera arrive at the temple mere seconds later.]

Baloo:
Take the kid, Baggy! I'll help Mowgli!

Bagheera:
Baloo, be careful!

[Baloo runs into Shanti, and they begin to argue]

Baloo:
What are you doing here? Hey, I'm really not in the mood for this.

Shanti:
[overlapping Baloo] I spent the night in the jungle! I was attacked by a snake! But I really don't care, because--

Baloo:
And, that's why--

Both:
I'm here to help Mowgli! [they hesitate] You are?

Baloo:
: I guess we're on the same side.

Shanti:
[still coming to terms with the fact that Baloo is benevolent] I guess so.

Baloo:
OK.

Shanti:
OK.

Baloo:
All right. You, uh... go that way. I'll cover you. [Shanti hurries off; Baloo observes Shere Khan roaming around the temple from behind a gong, and sees Mowgli come out from his hiding place behind the gong a few yards away before hiding again. Baloo then sounds the gong with his fists, getting Shere Khan's attention. Mowgli peeks out and sees Shere Khan approaching Baloo's position. Shanti nervously bangs another gong, drawing Shere Khan towards her. Mowgli quietly observes Baloo and Shanti's actions and rings his gong with a couple branches, causing Shere Khan to hone in on his hiding place. Baloo sounds his gong again: Shere Khan immediately goes in his direction. The three then sound their gongs simultaneously, confusing Shere Khan. Unfortunately, the chain holding up Shanti's gong breaks off, Baloo and Mowgli gasps and getting Shere Khan's attention.]

Shanti:
Oh, no.

Shere Khan:
[chuckles] Well isn't this a delightful turn of events? [chuckles] So, what's it going to be, man-cub? You or your adorable little girlfriend? [Shanti throws her sticks at Shere Khan] I'm waiting! One, two--

Mowgli:
[realizes that Shere Khan is going to kill Shanti and comes out from his hiding place and said] No! Don't!

Shere Khan:
Three-- [turns to see Mowgli; he chuckles then scowls] No more games, man-cub.

[Shere Khan charges at Mowgli, Baloo bashes Shere Khan with his hip]

Shanti:
Mowgli?!

Mowgli:
Come on!

[they run up a staircase; Baloo grabs Shere Khan, trying to slow him down, but the tiger hits Baloo in the face, knocking him aside]

Baloo:
Mowgli! Look out!

Shanti:
[realizing there's a pit of lava at the bottom] Oh, no!

Mowgli:
We can do it!

[they jump across and just barely grab onto the statue at the other end. Shere Khan is close behind and effortlessly leaps across]

Mowgli:
Come on!

[he and Shanti climb on top of the statue. Shere Khan, using all his strength, climbs up after the children and corners them]

Shere Khan:
Mowgli... [The statue tilts and falls. Shere Khan falls down towards the lava. Baloo barely catches Shanti and Mowgli. Shere Khan lands on a rocky outcrop in the lava pit. A second later, the statue seemingly crushes him. Baloo, Shanti, and Mowgli look down into the pit where Shere Khan fell. Shere Khan is now trapped in the statue's mouth; an injured but still alive Lucky appears.]

Lucky:
Hello, stripes. You're looking a bit down in the mouth today. [laughs crazily]

Shere Khan:
Oh, no...

Lucky:
Hey, hey! What's the matter? Cat got your tongue? I always knew you had a head on your shoulders, eh, Khanny, my boy? [laughing crazily]
