Mowgli says goodbye to the wolves in new clip + poster for Disney's The Jungle Book

Have some eye-dabbing material handy while you watch this two-tissue clip from Jon Favreau's adaptation of Disney's The Jungle Book.  Nobody knows how to turn on the waterworks like Disney, and this scene, showing Mowgli (Neel Sethi) saying farewell to his wolf clan family to join up with Bagheera, is a touching example that just might rank right up there with the classic goodbye with Dumbo and his mother. 

Directed by Favreau, this adventurous family film features a stellar vocal cast, including Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela and Lupita Nyong'o as Raksha.

Check out this tear-filled clip and the new international poster below and tell us if this live-action jungle tale might be worth trekking into theaters for when it opens April 15.
