The Jungle Book - A Liberal Reimagining of a Classic Tale (SPOILERS)

Once again, spoilers, for a story from 1894.

The Jungle Book is first and foremost a coming of age tale, but more importantly, a coming out tale about a man cub who discovers the power of his true self. Jon Favreau has masterfully recreated the Jungle Book with this modern paradigm. It follows Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a young boy adopted by a pack of wolves after being orphaned by the malevolent tiger, Shere Khan (Idris Elba). Mowgli must leave his adopted family in pursuit of safety when, along his journey, he meets Baloo (Bill Murray), who encourages him to embrace his unique abilities as a member of the tribe of man.
