Strand VCI Entertainment plans to ride Disney’s coattails with its own “Jungle Book” animated releases. Disney announced earlier that its 1967 animated feature “The Jungle Book” will be released on homevideo May 3, accompanied by a huge marketing blitz.

Strand VCI owns 50 half-hour “Jungle Book” episodes from Nippon Animation Co. To date, it has released eight episodes to distribution at $9.98 suggested retail and one to the premium market. Three more episodes will be released in April, and a 90-minute tape, featuring three episodes, is scheduled for release in March at $24.95.
