As anticipation for the release of the live-action remake of "The Jungle Book" escalates, Disney has released a stunning set of photos of the cast with their animal counterparts. 

We already knew the cast was filled with A-listers, but seeing them beside their CGI characters is just downright cool. 

The collection includes Idris Elba with tiger Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson with the serpent Kaa, Lupita Nyong'o with the wolf Raksha, Christopher Walken with a giant King Louie the ape, Sir Ben Kingsley with black panther Bagheera and Giancarlo Esposito with Akela. There's no photo of Bill Murray with Baloo, but maybe that's because he was too busy perfecting "The Bare Necessities." 

Check out all the pics below: 

"The Jungle Book" hits theaters on April 15.
