What is Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle about?

In the jungle, Kaa (Cate Blanchett), a gigantic Indian python seer, watches as Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch), a violent crippled Bengal tiger, breaks jungle-law by hunting down and killing a family of humans for sport, with only a surviving child escaping. Bagheera (Christian Bale), a panther drawn to the scene, finds and rescues the man-cub known as Mowgli (Rohan Chand), and takes him to a family of Indian wolves, where he is adopted by Nisha (Naomie Harris) and Vihaan (Eddie Marsan). However, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander), Shere Khan's hyena lackey, finds the boy before he is chased off.
They take the infant Mowgli before the wolf council and Akela (Peter Mullan), the chief and leader of the pack, to decide his destiny with Bagheera buying his life with a kill and a Himalayan brown bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis) strong-armed into agreeing. Shere Khan arrives to kill Mowgli, but Akela stops him, saying the boy is now safe while he is under the protection of the pack and allows Shere Khan to leave. Before leaving, Shere Khan gives Akela a warning that when he misses his prey, he will return to find and kill Mowgli.
For many years after, Mowgli lives as a new member amongst the wolf pack. One day, as Mowgli goes swimming alone, he suddenly encounters Shere Khan. He manages to escape the tiger, but then falls into a pit. He is saved by Hathi, an Indian elephant with moss growing on his skin and missing half a tusk. Bagheera eventually finds Mowgli and takes him home. Although Bagheera reveals to Mowgli that he is a human and he will be safe if he goes to the Man-Village, Mowgli declares that he wishes to stay as a wolf. He further declares that he will only go if he fails the pack's trial, which would determine if he can become a full member of the pack.
