LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Disney released a seconds-long teaser from it's live action remake of The Jungle Book ahead of a full-length trailer expected to air during the Super Bowl game on Sunday.

Starring Neel Sethi as protagonist Mowgli, the clip highlights action scenes featuring Bill Murray's Baloo, Idris Elba's Shere Khan and Christopher Walken's King Louie.


Speaking with People in an interview this week, 12-year-old star Sethi said he landed the part by simply "being myself."

"Me and Mowgli are so similar," he said. "We're both free-spirited, confident and stubborn."

The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau, will also feature the voices of Scarlett Johansson and Ben Kingsley in the film, which hits theaters April 15.
