The film contains a number of classic songs, including "The Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You". Most of the songs were written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The film was directed by Wolfgang Reitherman. The film grossed over $73 million in the United States in its first release, and as much again from three re-releases.
After the film's success, Disney released a 1994 live-action remake, a 2003 theatrical sequel, and another live-action remake in 2016.
The film stands as one of the most popular Disney movies of all time. In its initial release, the popularity was equivocal to that of The Lion King or Frozen, making it a great influence for some of today's biggest names in animation. Unfortunately, The Walt Disney Company would not receive a similar success until 1989's The Little Mermaid.
