Watch a new Super Bowl trailer for Disney's The Jungle Book

The first full trailer for Disney's live-action (and heavy CGI) remake of the 1967 cartoon classic The Jungle Book was released during the Super Bowl tonight. The trailer introduces Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, Christopher Walken as King Louie the orangutan, and Ben Kingsley as the friendly panther Bagheera.

"The Bare Necessities" — the unforgettable earworm about chilling out and eating prickly pears — soundtracked the trailer, sung by Murray. A previous teaser trailer sampled a weirdly seductive version of "Trust in Me," sung by Scarlett Johansson as Kaa the python.

The Jungle Book is set for release on April 15, 2016.
