[Malatra] Jungle Book as an Adventure [minor spoilers]

Soaring above the jungles of southern Kara-Tur, the Malatran Plateau has been invisible to the natives of Abeir-Toril for thousands of years. Most sages consider the area nothing more than an uninteresting wilderness.

[Malatra] Jungle Book as an Adventure [minor spoilers]

Post by Seethyr » Mon Apr 25, 2016 10:28 pm

I just took my daughter to see the new Jungle Book, and all that I could think about was how great an adventure it could make. I love stealing plots from movies almost as much as I do books. But seriously, King Louie as a gigantopithicus in a ruined city of the Ancients? Sure Shere Kahn would have to be replaced with some other antagonist, unless you adapted JAguar Lords from Maztica and simply made them "Tiger Lords." Giant snakes with the ability to mesmerize, Elephants - or better yet, Loxo, having some mystical, religious significance. Perhaps all that wouldn't fit are the wolves...

The Wise Ones already have said connection to the elephants. But I completely agree. With The Jungle Book, and the new Tarzan in a few months, I am going to be in the mood to do some nice Jungle-themed writing.

“Before we hunt the thunderboar, you should drink from this enchanted spring. It might give you crazy dreams.BUT, when you wake up you’ll be immune to the boar’s electric attacks." Adventure Time shows how similar it is to Malatra.

Did you ever get any further with this Seethyr?

The TV Tropes article for the Jungle Book movie has a list of plot elements that you might be able to use as a conversion checklist. :)
