Watch: Lupita Nyong'o Reveals Her Top 3 "Bare Necessities"

Fans of The Jungle Book, rejoice!

Director Jon Favreau's new movie adaptation of the children's classic is everything and more. So much fun, so much action and so full of heart.

So when we caught up with the stars of the movie at last night's Hollywood premiere we asked them to name the three things that they would need to survive in the jungle.

Lupita Nyong'o didn't even hesitate with her answer.

"I would bring with me...lotion," said the Oscar winner, who plays wolf Raksha in the film. "You have to have lotion, you have to keep moisturized. Slippers because I don't like being barefoot in muddy situations. Slippers or some sandal. And um, a watch. A watch with a calendar."

Neel Sethi, the young boy who makes his acting debut in the film as Mowgli, said he'd like to bring a car and a plane "so I could get out of the jungle."

His third pic? "A hoverboard," Neel said. "That would be my last resort."

And then there was Sir Ben Kingsley, who plays Mowgli's panther protector Bagheera.

If he was stuck in the jungle, Kingsley would want his family (wife, kids and grandchildren) there and...

Florence + The Machine!

"To listen to Florence [Welch]," Kinglsey said. "She doesn't have to be there."

Sir Ben explained, "I've met her a few times at a live concert and my ambition is to be in one of her music videos."

Balls in your jungle court, Florence!

The Jungle Book is in theaters on April 15.
