Idris brings his character, a Bengal tiger, to life in this clip.
Disney recently released gorgeously striking portraits of the voice cast of The Jungle Book along side their animal characters. Cast members include Lupita Nyong’o and Idris Elba.
Elba’s role is a Bengal tiger named Shere Khan who “reigns with fear,” as the actor describes. “He terrorized everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”
Now we have the opportunity to hear and watch Elba’s voice as Shere Khan in this new video clip of the live-action remake!
The jungle cat is seen in a standoff against Mowgli’s wolves as he angrily discusses the dangers of humans.
What do you think, ladies? Does he reign with fear?
