For me this is a father and son thing: my Dad took me to see the first Disney version when I was a kid and last night I took Dovid to see the 2016 remake. We bathed in the warmth and the humour. The original will always be the most magical for me: Disney at its anthropomorphic best, although the latest King Louis is a scary mountain of an ape. The two films are complementary. I’m ready to read the Kipling and to reflect on the real picture in present day India where the caste system lives on and real tigers are horribly slaughtered by poachers. It’s man who poses Shere Khan’s greatest threat.
