Disney’s live-action/CGI hybrid re-imagining of “The Jungle Book” opened in theaters last Friday to overwhelmingly positive reviews, and the box-office numbers for the weekend have reflected the critical reception, while also factoring in positive audience word-of-mouth.

“The Jungle Book,” directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), raked in $103.6 million dollars in the United States alone, bringing the grand total to nearly $300 million internationally. The movie is already a certifiably huge success for Disney and another justification for the company’s continued efforts to re-adapt many of its classic animated features in live-action form.
