The wolf council appears at the start of the film with Akela, Rama, Raksha and Bagheera. Akela discusses what to do with Mowgli, as Shere Khan has returned to their part of the jungle, and not even the entire pack is strong enough to defeat him. When Akela makes an ultimatum, the wolf council nods in agreement. After Bagheera volunteers to take Mowgli to the Man Village, the wolf council does not appear for the rest of the film.
The Wolf Council is briefly mentioned in Once Upon a Time as the wolves who had raised The Huntsman, a similar backstory to Mowgli.
