Bill Murray & Neel Sethi Sing "The Bare Necessities"

Bill Murray can carry a tune all by himself, but the man who plans Baloo in Disney's upcoming "The Jungle Book" brought a friend to duet on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

The young star of the upcoming live-action/CGI hybrid, Neel Sethi, was a little shy at first to sing "The Bare Necessities" on live, national television — but he soon came around and even got into it.

Watch the video above and the film's first full trailer below.

"The Jungle Book" swings into theaters on April 15.

The reimagining of the classic children's tale also stars the voices of Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley.
