Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer of its latest big screen adaptation of "The Jungle Book" -- this time as a live action film mixed with computer-generated imagery.

Based on the book by Rudyard Kipling, this version has been adapted by "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau.

Hollywood stars Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken and Idris Elba provide the voices in the film. Newcomer Neel Sethi portrays the young Mowgli.

"The Jungle Book" hits cinemas next April.
