El Capitan Theatre was certainly the place to be on Monday night as dozens of celebrities came out to support Disney’s The Jungle Book Garcelle Beauvais was one of many stars to attend the event with her sons.

The actress looked stunning while on the red carpet with Jaid and Jax. The party of three smiled wide as photographers took a myriad of pictures.


This present remake of The Jungle Book stars Idris Elba and Lupita Nyong’o as voice-overs. Although the actors are different, the film’s characters and story plot remain the same.

Idris Elba stars as the villain, Shere Khan, in the movie. “I’m very proud to be doing it,” he shared during a recent interview. “The Jungle Book was a film I watched many times as a kid and it’s hard to believe I’m voicing Shere Khan, although I have to admit Baloo was my favourite character. I’ve always loved cartoons. They give a lot of joy to young people and they spark their imagination. It’s beautiful to watch their faces light up when they watch them.”

Idris went on to tell the press that he was thrilled to participate in animated stories that his kids can enjoy. “I love the fact my kids will be able to watch some of my stuff and hear their father’s voice,” he said. “It means a lot to me.”

Idris Elba is the proud father of two kids. The Jungle Book makes its public debut on April 15, 2016.
