He read them the story to show the scouts the true meaning of friendship and to inspire young adventurers to get outdoors.

Ireland's Cub Scouts are celebrating the anniversary with special scouts and scout family and friends screenings of Disney's big screen live action version of the story.

To mark the launch scouts from Cub Scouts 100 were at ODEON Charlestown where they encountered a live python.

The Jungle Book screenings take place at ODEON cinemas nationwide on Saturday April 23 at 9.30am and 12.15pm.
