    Well, at first it read as a ludicrous idea, but now I am strangely intrigued!

    As an enormous fan of the original Jungle Books, this interview betrayed an enormous lack of understanding of the original stories. I won't be picking this up.

    King Louis is the leader of the ape tribe.
    From wikiepedia: As the Disney movie is "inspired by" rather than "based on" the Kipling stories,[2] the character King Louie does not appear in Rudyard Kipling's original book, as orangutans are not native to India. Also, Kipling insists that the Bandar-log or monkeys have no king, or any effective leadership.

    Yep! Which is an absolutely essential part of the Bandar-log's metaphor.

    And also, not to be too negative (which I try hard not to be on the Internet), but do they really expect us to believe Mowgli is a girl for story reasons? It's not because every single one of these series stars incredibly sexualized women?

    Given how many comic books star male protagonists, and the fact this Mowgli is older and more feral, in addition to being female, this book is way more interesting to me now than if they just made a more violent interpretation of the Disney movie. Power to the Zenepeople!

    There were already stories in the original Kipling of Mowgli being older, and he was never "feral" to begin with.

    No, you're thinking of Mark Millar. Note the "a".
