“She is the protector, the eternal mother,” Nyong’o said in a Disney press release. “The word ‘Raksha’ actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own.”

Giancarlo Esposito voices Akela, the alpha-male wolf who accepts Mowgli but also fears he’ll endanger the pack.   jungle-book-characters-pose-with-their-actor-counterparts-and-its-awesome-1

“Akela is a fierce patriarch of the wolf pack,” said Esposito. “He believes the strength of the pack lies in what each and every wolf offers. He’s a great leader, a wise teacher.”

“Shere Khan reigns with fear,” said Elba. “He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”

“Bagheera is Mowgli’s adoptive parent,” said Kingsley. “His role in Mowgli’s life is to educate, to protect and to guide. My Bagheera was military — he’s probably a colonel. He is instantly recognizable by the way he talks, how he acts and what his ethical code is.”

Scarlett Johansson voices the treacherous, hypnotic python Kaa.   jungle-book-characters-pose-with-their-actor-counterparts-and-its-awesome-4

“Kaa seduces and entraps Mowgli with her storytelling,” Johansson said. “She’s the mirror into Mowgli’s past. The way she moves is very alluring, almost coquettish.”

“King Louie is huge — 12 feet tall,” Walken said. “But he’s as charming as he is intimidating when he wants to be.”
