Director Woolie Reitherman on JUNGLE BOOK

Woolie talks about the animators' challenges when working on the characters for Disney's 1967 animated film The Jungle Book. (Walt's last animated project and my favorite Disney movie). 
This interview was filmed during the early 1980s at the LA Zoo. Woolie just gets one thing wrong about Mowgli trying to get back to the man village, which he really doesn't want to do.

Nevertheless, historical statements from an iconic master of Disney Animation.


  1. Thanks for sharing this! While I always liked The Jungle Book, for some reason I didn't learn to fully appreciate it and love it until I hit my mid-twenties. It really is a fascinating work in many ways. As a matter of fact, I seem to recall you contributing to a DVD's audio commentary!

  2. Wen you work your character Jafar on ALADDIN, how did you express your sketches on Aladdin I know you involved of Jafar but I think Jafar is the most difficult character villain to make it reel, i like your character Jafar you're character is the best villain since Maleficent.

    1. I appreciate your work Andreas you are the best artist. ☺

    2. If you haven't seen Andreas' previous posts about Jafar, check them out!
