The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic was a nighttime show at Disney's Animal Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort. It was located in the park's Discovery River. The show was limited-time engagement, filled the space of the delayed Rivers of Light night-time show, presumably until Rivers of Light was ready.[2] The show featured music from the film, adding an Indian influence.

“We’re so thrilled at how much ‘The Jungle Book’ film has been embraced by audiences around the world,” said Michael Jung, Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment. “And we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate ‘The Jungle Book’ with this new live show. It’s going to be a perfect fit for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”

Show summary

In “The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic,” the excitement and fun of Disney’s hit live-action adventure “The Jungle Book” roars to life with live music and performance, dazzling special effects and production numbers inspired by Indian cultural traditions. As night falls, we’ll gather on the shores of the Discovery River for a vibrant Indian celebration, as dozens of colorful performers take to the water and surround the audience in song and visual artistry.

In addition, massive curtains of water glow to life above the river’s surface, illuminated with imagery from the blockbuster film as Bagheera and other favorite characters from “The Jungle Book” take us on a journey through the jungle, following Mowgli’s exciting, perilous and sometimes hilarious wild encounters. The show features rousing, Indian-inspired arrangements of the movie’s popular songs “Trust in Me,” “The Bare Necessities” and “I Wanna Be Like You,” all building to an uplifting, boisterous finale.
