The Jungle Book 2 was originally conceived as a direct-to-video sequel, but during production, the producers of the film liked it so much that they decided to release it in theaters. It came to theaters worldwide in 2003, and DVD in October of that year.
The film follows Mowgli, who is enjoying his new life in the Man-Village, but longs to return to The Jungle. He meets up with old friends Baloo and Bagheera for a wonderful adventure that goes beyond his wildest dreams.
Meanwhile, Shere Khan the tiger is intent on killing the Man-Cub, and plans to exact his revenge on young Mowgli.
