The animation was very carefully planned. Each scene was briefed before creating it. All the proper camera angles were decided after choosing the perfect one. The animation team imagined how a certain character would react in a particular situation.
The animals were pretty tricky to create. Each animal has its own feature which is different from others. Mowgli`s best friend Baloo, a bear was round and huge in shape. He had big hands with pretty long nails. Similarly, Bagheera, Sher Khan had to be created very carefully without overlooking any important feature. For creating animals, puppets were used while shooting and they were later replaced with the special effects.
