My Take on the Book
My family has loved this movie for a long time. Some of this is because of the characters. Diva-J loves Baloo and Diva-PJ is a HUGE fan of King Louie. For me, I have been a fan of the music since I first saw this as a child myself. This new Blu-ray is not only well mastered, with great music sound quality , but you also get a fully digitally work that is wonderfully bright and inviting. If you have never seen this movie, I highly recommend that you check this out. You will be drawn in by the story and within no time you and your family will be singing along with the music as well!
