Disney has been riding high in the star castings (like Emma Stone as nasty puppy-thief Cruella de Vil) and celeb collaborations (um, helloooo Kate Spade) lately, and now they have us practically swinging through the trees with excitement with the latest, wildest promo pics from the upcoming remake of the beloved tale of The Jungle Book.

Disney's The Jungle Book _ Lupita Nyong'o _ wolf _ Raksha

Including key cast members like Lupita Nyong鈥檕 staring majesctically into the camera, a wolf, taking on the role of Raksha, nuzzled close beside her. 鈥淪he is the protector, the eternal mother,鈥 says Lupita. 鈥淭he word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn鈥檛 originally hers but one she鈥檚 taken for her own.鈥

Disney's The Jungle Book _ Scarlett _ snake _ Kaa

Scarlett Johansson is sleek and sexy lounging against the GIGANTIC snake coiling around her as the hypnotic Kaa. 鈥淜aa seduces and entraps Mowgli with her storytelling,鈥 says Scarlett Johansson. 鈥淪he鈥檚 the mirror into Mowgli鈥檚 past. The way she moves is very alluring, almost coquettish.鈥

Disney's The Jungle Book _ Idris Elba _ tigere _ ShereKhan

Idris Elba鈥 tiger鈥 *breathe* 鈥 *fans self*鈥 鈥淪here Khan reigns with fear,鈥 Idris said of his character. 鈥淗e terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.鈥

Created with the help of CGI with no need to capture or scare real animals, the result is as humane as it is totally WILD and has us ready to pick up tickets to the Jon Favreau-directed movie hitting screens on April 15.

Do these pics give you shivers of fear or shivers of excitement 鈥 or BOTH? Tweet us @BritandCo!
