  1. Did you guys not hear from the movie that “10 times the rain has come and gone” from Bagheera means that Mowgli has grown to be 10 years old, 10 years since the panther found the mancub as a baby. Not to mention, Mowgli was also voiced by a 10 year old named Bruce Reitherman. And the village girl from the end of the movie was around 12 years old while Darleen Carr was 16 when she voiced the girl or Shanti from the Jungle Book 2. That’s why the girl sounds older than she is apparently in the film.
