If you're a huge Disney fan (and really, I don't trust many people who aren't) you're likely stoked about the upcoming live-action adaptations of some of your favorite animated films. Emma Watson's Beauty and the Beast is on its way, but that's not the only live-action flick featuring one of your fave actresses that Disney is bringing us. The live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book hits theaters on April 16, 2016, and it just released a trailer featuring Scarlett Johansson that will totally freak you out.

The trailer doesn't tell us much about the movie, but it does feature a few recognizable characters from the original animated film. Mowgli, the "jungle boy," is once again the main character, and it seems that he'll interact with plenty of talking animals, just like in the original flick. Unfortunately, not every animal is super friendly. ScarJo voices a snake that talks like she's going to eat our poor Mowgli any second now... and given her size, it's more than possible. (Gulp.)

The original animated film was filled with goofy songs and comedic moments, but this new movie seems to be going in a different, far more action-packed direction. This jungle might not be as whimsical as its animated counterpart, but it definitely seems like a place ripe for epic adventures. I can't wait to see what trouble Mowgli and his animal friends get into this time around.
