After what has felt like years of waiting, we'll finally get to see Disney's latest live-action epic The Jungle Book next month. Director Jon Favreau is at the helm of this all-star cast that hopes to bring us a new spin on a beloved animated classic.

Since the movie's inception, the technology and aesthetic has been widely kept under wraps — that is, until recently. In the last few months, Disney has been whetting the appetites of fans with enough teasers, posters and trailers to pique our interests.

The latest of these releases is a set of posters, each featuring a close-up look at a main character. Check out the seven new character images below:

Neel Sethi — Mowgli

At just 10 years old, the young actor beat out thousands of hopefuls to star in his first ever movie.

Bill Murray — Baloo

If Murray playing Baloo isn't perfect casting, then I don't know what is. He might not be singing the songs we know, but Favreau has promised us that we'll still get a taste of the classic songs.

Ben Kingsley — Bagheera

Oscar-winner Kingsley will be playing the protective panther who guides Mowgli though the jungle.

Idris Elba — Shere Khan

Earlier today we got a good first look at Shere Khan in action.

Scarlett Johansson — Kaa

Johansson's slippery and mellifluous tones are perfect for voicing the smooth-talking snake.

Christopher Walken — King Louie

Disney
Disney

In this version of The Jungle Book, King Louie is an orangutan of gargantuan proportions. If someone that size is demanding the secret to man's red fire, I would probably have to give in.

Lupita Nyong'o — Raksha

Disney
Disney

You might not be particularly familiar with Raksha yet, but she's the wolf mother who raises Mowgli as her own.

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to step foot into this jungle.

Disney's 'The Jungle Book' will swing into theaters on April 15.
