The Jungle of India is the main setting from Disney's 1967 movie The Jungle Book, its sequel, 2016 live-action remake, and television series.

History

In The Jungle Book, the jungle is located somewhere in India . It appears to be very vast, and is home to a wide variety of wildlife. At times, references are made to various parts of the jungle, mostly in relation to Shere Khan's location. When Mowgli is approximately 10 years old, Shere Khan returns to the part of the jungle where the wolves and Mowgli make their home. This forces the pack to send Mowgli away for their safety, as Shere Khan would kill them otherwise. This area of the jungle is said to be near a man-village, where Mowgli later lives. Also present are ancient ruins where King Louie and his monkeys make their home. In the 2016 film, the watering hole known as the Water Truce is also shown, in addition to the landmarks described above. It is also stated several times that the Seoni area (spelled as Seeonee in the story) comprises the southern part of the Jungle. During times of severe drought, when a huge rock known as the Peace Rock is exposed above the water line, animals both predator and prey gather to drink in peace without fear of attack, as they agree not to hunt one another when they come to quench their thirst.

Colonel Hathi and his herd are said to patrol the jungle, as part of cross-country marches.

Trivia

  • In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, players can access textureless maps of The Jungle Book world through the use of a cheat device, including King Louie's throne room (which is the only one with textures).
  • While the exact location of this particular Indian jungle is not specified in the film, It can be assumed that it is somewhere in the Madhya Pradesh region as it shares similar animal life, ancient ruins and fauna as shown in the films. In the book, Rudyard Kipling states that the area in which the story takes place is the Seoni region of Madhya Pradesh (spelled as Seeonee in the book). Unlike in the story and films, the real Seoni area is not actual jungle, but deciduous forest.
  • The 2016 adaptation of The Jungle Book is the only Disney adaptation of the Jungle Book to show the Water Truce and Peace Rock, which play prominent roles in the original stories by Rudyard Kipling.
