Shere Khan, a dangerous and powerful Bengal tiger, is the main villain of the Walt Disney film The Jungle Book.

About Him

He is the main villain of The Jungle Book. The Disney version of him is quite different from the original character of the book: the book version of Shere Khan had a limp in one of his front paws. The Disney version does not. He is found both as an "actual" tiger in The Jungle Book and as an anthro in Talespin, where he is portrayed as a powerful businessman who leads a massive company called Khan Industries. In the original film, he was voiced by George Sanders, who had previously been one of the actors to play Mr. Freeze in the 1960's Batman TV series. Later, after George Sanders committed suicide, Tony Jay voiced the character in TaleSpin and The Jungle Book 2, as well as voicing Judge Claude Frollo in The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. Since the death of Tony Jay in 2006, he has been voiced by Corey Burton. A far more evil, violent and deadly version appears in Disney's 2016 live action remake of The Jungle Book, voiced by Idris Elba.
