The 12-year-old actor and his 65-year-old Jungle Book co-star were quick to say that they didn’t rehearse this at all before singing.
“At first, I didn’t know the science behind everything and how it all worked, but now I do. There was a lot of makeup—that part took an hour and a half a day!” Neel explained in the issue.
He also opened up about being the only live actor in the movie, “It feels pretty cool. I know this doesn’t happen that often, but when it does people think it’s pretty cool. People say the animals are cool and ask if they’re real. They ask so many questions because they know there’s no one else in the movie they can ask!”
