Disney made the Jungle Book with the fantasies coming into light. According to experts, every shot in the movie was like a science project because the team had to figure out how to make things look exact and realistic, per Jon Favreau’s direction. Everything needed to feel like a real shot and a real lens.

The opening title sequence of the film was created using Nuke and is an homage to Walt Disney himself and animation history, inspired by the historic multiplane camera. The entire film was shot on blue screen to emulate live-action photography, with the same exposure range of sunlight to shadow. To help with photographic lighting, the team used a turntable to emulate a continuous walk rather than a treadmill.

A rig was built to imitate exactly what the muscle of the bear does as it walks and was dubbed the “Favreauator,” after the film’s director. Favreau was quoted saying, “They have to be the most believable animals we’ve ever seen.”The VFX artists used the less than $5 iPano app in order to stage the physical environment on set so that it matched the virtual environment. Five hundred variations of plants, trees, and other set dressing were developed, which resulted in approximately 31 square kilometers of the jungle environment. Jim Henson puppeteers were used to help Mowgli actor Neel Sethi act out emotion in reaction to the animals. The Jim Henson and his company has remained an established leader in the family of entertainment for over 50 years and are recognized worldwide as an innovator in puppetry, animatronics and digital animation.

Animators were inspired by the “Ultimate Dog Tease” viral video in helping to make the acting choices of the animals seem more realistic through VFX animation.

“King Louie does not appear in the original book, and in the 1967 Walt Disney Animation Studios musical adaptation that the character first appears as an orangutan. In 2016’s live-action version, King Louie was modeled after the extinct orangutan relative gigantopithecus, using fossil records and calling upon past work such as the new “Planet of the Apes” films and “King Kong” to create the character.” Said one of the artists in VFX for the movie. The artists and animation team researched the nature documentaries, studied YouTube videos, combed through books on animal anatomy, and attended lectures taught by animal experts in order to build more than 224 unique animals.

Massive software were used for bug simulation as well as for the smaller monkeys in the King Louie sequence. With Massive, visual effects studios can animate anywhere from a few to a few hundred thousand realistically responding digital characters, helping artists and animators tackle ever more ambitious effects challenges and scenes, such as those seen in X3.
