Listen to 2 Beautiful Songs from the Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle Soundtrack

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle is shaping up to be one of the strangest releases in recent memory. After many years in development hell, and Disney beating them to the punch on some level, it finally looked like the movie was getting a theatrical release this year. Back in July, however, it was announced that Warner Bros. had pulled the movie from the release schedule and now it was getting released on Netflix. It's not the first time a thing like this has happened but Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle might be one of the higher-profile examples. The movie is getting a limited theatrical release this week and Entertainment Weekly has two songs and spoke to director Andy Serkis about the soundtrack by Nitin Sawhney.

"As I was trying to search for [Mowgli's] tone, its heart, its pulse and rhythm, I knew one thing in my heart. That I wanted my friend Nitin Sawhney, one of our generation's greatest polymaths, an extraordinary voice in world music, to create the score for what was to hopefully become a visceral and immersive adaptation of Kipling's work," Serkis says of the score.

The songs are quite beautiful so give them a listen below and if Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle gets a theatrical release near you this weekend perhaps it's worth checking out. The visuals alone look like they could be worth it.

A human child raised by wolves, must face off against a menacing tiger named Shere Khan, as well as his own origins.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, directed by Andy Serkis, stars Rohan Chand, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis, and Peter Mullan. It will have a limited release in theaters on November 29th and stream to Netflix on December 7th.
