Get ready for a trip to the jungle, as Mowgli will hit your living rooms Dec. 7.

The Andy Serkis movie, which features an A-list cast of names such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett, was originally scheduled for an October release in theatres.

But Netflix stepped in and bought the rights to the movie for its platform, planning to release a special 3D version in theatres.

"I believe it's the largest ensemble cast of A-list actors for a motion capture role," said Andy Serkis at Netflix's See What's Next Asia event Wednesday.

"They were interested in doing something out of their comfort zone."

Mowgli will feature a darker take on the story, compared to Disney's 2016 The Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau.
