Neel Sethi will make his feature debut in Walt Disney Pictures' live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book. E! News caught up with the young actor at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, where he said the movie making experience has been "really overwhelming" since he's "never done anything like this before."
Sethi explained that he didn't work with real animals on set. "It's CGI technology. It's really new technology so it looks really cool, and instead of that, I worked with puppets and eye lines," he said of the filming process. "They look really funny."
Seth—along with co-stars Ben Kinsgley and Lupita Nyong'o, plus director Jon Favreau and Walt Disney Pictures' president of production Sean Bailey—premiered footage from the movie at Saturday's event. (For now, it's unavailable online.)
