Idris Elba Will Make Shere Khan the Sexiest Tiger Ever

By Vivian Kane | Trade News | March 7, 2014 | Comments ()


Idris Elba has just signed on to voice the tiger Shere Khan in Disney’s live action The Jungle Book.

The Jungle Book just recently entered the public domain, so Disney is in a race with Warner Brothers to make a movie adaptation quick. Disney’s will be directed by Jon Favreau and has onboard the guy who supervised the visual effects for Hugo. Warner Brothers just picked up Ron Howard to direct after Alejandro Gonzalez (Babel) dropped out.

The question on everyone’s minds, though, is clear: Is it acceptable to be sexually attracted to a tiger?

    Was kind of hoping this voicework would be for Life of Pi 2: Wrath of Khan. did that last live action Jungle Book do?

  • Jiffylush

    Not sure about the last one but I remember watching the live action one from 1942 when I was a kid, loved it.

    Edit - In the 1994 version Lena Headey was Kitty, I will so be watching that.

  • Bert_McGurt

    In this case, I Shere Khan see where your feliphilac tendencies are coming from.

    …. Dad?

  • BWeaves

    Isn't that the whole purpose of tigers, to be sexually attracted to them?

    Your Moist Lions

    Meanwhile, in the Serengeti…

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Thank you for adding the twinkling stars, especially the one that looks like a Restoration-era beauty mark near the lion's eye.

  • kinoumenthe

    Moist lions are nothing without a star-shaped beauty mark.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Lions and Tigers and Elba...oh my!

  • Billybob

    Damn it, Bweaves, that's how you get tigons*.

    *Not ligers. A liger has a tiger mommy and a lion daddy. Idris Elba is nobody's mommy.

  • Sassy Pikachu

    Yeah, but the growth inhibitors are in the male tiger and female lion, so the tigons are tiny. And Idris Elba should be nothing but the greatest (and biggest)... so... I vote Ligers.

  • Adam Borden

    Oh, he knows....

  • Billybob

    They'd better make him lame in at least one of these adaptations.

    I tried to warn you all that embracing the liberal gay marriage agenda would eventually lead to human/beast love affairs, but you didn't listen. I pray for your souls.

    It's a testament to Santorum's bigotry that I did not believe for a second that was a satire. Bravo!

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I'm going to line up now for tickets. Shall I save a place for everyone?

  • Dumily

    I don't want to be vulgar, but I'd better wait until I can watch in private.
