Factual Mistake
Kaa being a female in this film is ironic as female snakes in real life are actually more vicious than their male counterparts
Trivia:
Scarlett Johansson was eight months pregnant when she voiced the character of Kaa.

This is Idris Elba's second Disney movie role after Zootopia in 2016.

Remote jungle locations in India were photographed and used as reference for the jungle environment in the film

All the animals are native to South Asia, but Ben Kingsley is the only voice actor to be of South Asian origin.

This is Bill Murray and Christopher Walken's first voice over job since Fantastic Mr. Fox, 7 years prior and Kangaroo Jack was 13 years prior respectively.

John Debney's 13th Disney movie for music score

The animal characters were both motion captured by and performed live on set by puppeteers from the Jim Henson Company.

'The Jungle Book', marks Bill Murray's debut with Disney movies.

While the film is a live-action adaptation of the 1967 movie 'The Jungle Book', the filmmakers decided to include elements from the Rudyard Kipling novel to make the film more adventurous and dangerous

This is the first time that Kaa the Snake is portrayed as a female, rather than a male. Jon Favreau said the change was a deliberate one, as he felt there were too many male characters in The Jungle Book

The talking animals in this film were created using animal behavior, then having the actors copy those movements in motion-capture VFX

Bill Murray voices Baloo in this film; his older brother Brian Doyle-Murray had voiced Baloo in The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story

Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray's second film together since 'Lost in Translation'.

The original release date was set to be in October 2015, but was switched with another film to be released in 2016.

The wolf cubs in the film are named after motion capture actors and other crew members.
