Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book: Making a Masterpiece is a beautiful look at The Jungle Book. It was created in collaboration with Disney Legend Andreas Deja. When it opened last year, Daps Magic was invited to visit the museum to take a look at the exhibit and speak with Deja. The full interview can be found here.
